Shared Reading

What is Shared Reading in Being a Reader?
Shared Reading is a collaborative literacy activity in which you read and reread carefully selected enlarged texts (big books and poems) with the whole class. Shared Reading offers a supportive context for young learners to develop a delight in reading and an understanding of their ability to interact with books and print. For more information, see the Shared Reading information in the “Understanding the Program” section of the Introduction in the Gr. K and 1 teacher's manual.

In Kindergarten, 11 high-frequency words that are used in the Small-group Reading books in Set 1 are taught in the first eight weeks of instruction.  In Grade 1, the early weeks of Shared Reading provide the opportunity to reactivate learning from the previous year. 



How is Shared Reading in Being a Reader different from a Making Meaning read-aloud lesson?
Shared Reading is a collaborative literacy activity in which the teacher reads and rereads carefully selected enlarged texts (big books and poems) with the whole class. During Shared Reading, the teacher models effective reading behaviors and strategies, and consistently invites the students to be involved in reading and attending to print. Shared Reading offers a supportive context for young learners to develop a delight in reading and an understanding of their ability to interact with books and print. It is also critical in developing oral fluency, a key aspect of learning to read independently. For more information about Shared Reading, see the Introduction in the Kindergarten or Grade 1 grade-level Teacher’s Manual.
 
In Making Meaning, comprehension strategies are taught directly through read-aloud experiences, and the students learn to use these strategies to make sense of their own reading through guided and independent strategy practice.
