How to use shared reading
- Introduce the story by discussing the title, cover, and author/illustrator.
- Read the story aloud to the students using appropriate inflection and tone.
- Conclude the reading by reserving time for reactions and comments.
- Re-read the story and/or allow time for independent reading.
What does shared reading look like? Students sit together as a whole group and, following your first reading, engage in an oral reading of a common text. They use their voices to interpret the meaning of a text as they read in unison with others. Alternatively, students are assigned parts to read.
How to do Virtual Shared Reading
- Choose a poem, song, or big book to use with your students.
- Share your screen to share the poem with your students.
- Set a purpose for reading and read the poem.
- Use the poem to build in sight word practice or phonics lessons.
- Give students a copy of the poem to practice with at home.
Shared reading is a strategy that can support the teaching of the Big Six elements of reading:
- oral language.
- early experiences with print.
- phonological awareness.
- fluency and comprehension.
What is a five finger retell?
The Five Finger Retell Reading Strategy is designed to help students recall the five key elements of a story. The five key elements of a story are the setting, characters, problems, events, and solution. When a reader can recall these five key elements, he or she should be able to successfully summarize most stories.
In a nutshell, during a readaloud, you read a book TO students, and during shared reading, you read WITH students. For shared reading, we choose books that are a bit closer to students’ reading levels (because they are actively participating, reading along with you, finding words in the text, etc.).
On the flip side, there are some drawbacks:
- Shared reading can become an exercise in listening comprehension if both partners are not looking at the text; listening alone does not strengthen reading comprehension.
- You cannot assess independent reading comprehension if students are not reading independently.
How To Do Shared Writing
- Start by letting students know they will be helping you brainstorm ideas for a new piece of writing.
- Let students partner talk to discuss ideas for the story.
- Pick a topic to write based off of an idea you heard.
- Invite students to collaborate on what should be written through the piece.
What is a silent reading?
Silent reading is a reading skill which allows one to read without voicing the words. This is a natural process when reading and helps to reduce cognitive load, and it helps the mind to access meanings to enable it to comprehend and remember what is read.
How do you teach virtually to write?
Here are some tips for your virtual writing lessons:
- Use the same lessons and anchor charts that you would use if you were teaching in person.
- Keep the video lessons super short (10-15 minutes).
- Don’t aim for perfection.
- Batch your lesson recording.
- You don’t need fancy lights or a fancy microphone.
How do you teach reading distance learning?
Put some extra focus on independent reading.
- Have them keep a reading log and track the books they read.
- Have students send you a daily reading selfie after they have finished their reading.
- Give students a reading challenge board and have them cross off each reading task they complete.
Shared reading is a strategy that can support the teaching of the Big Six elements of reading: oral language and early experiences with print, phonological awareness, phonics, vocabulary, fluency and comprehension. (Konza, 2016). Day one can focus on reading for meaning and enjoyment.
What are the 7 strategies of reading?
To improve students’ reading comprehension, teachers should introduce the seven cognitive strategies of effective readers: activating, inferring, monitoring-clarifying, questioning, searching-selecting, summarizing, and visualizing-organizing.
What modeled reading?
Modelled reading (reading to or reading aloud) involves students listening to a text read aloud by the teacher. It provides an opportunity for teachers to demonstrate their enjoyment in reading, and allows students to see a purpose in learning to read.
