Shared reading is one of my most favorite parts of the day!! It is a time for me to model what great reading looks like, sounds like, and even how great readers think. The best part is that the students get the joy of reading the on-level text with me!
When I taught Kindergarten in the past, I mainly used poems or songs for our shared reading time. As I transitioned to 1st grade, I began using more big books than songs and poems. The kids still would jump for joy when it was a song, but big book was their favorite literacy station by far! This year I hope to incorporate more big books into my shared reading time with my sweet kinder friends.
I thought I would share a little bit more about shared reading today. Let’s begin with my basic “must-haves”. These are the tools that I was first introduced to as I worked on implementing shared reading.
Here is a glimpse of what it looks like in our classroom.
