We are continuing our shared reading time at school with many benefits.
The younger and older students take turns now reading to each other.
As you can imagine, the younger kids really look up to the older students, and it’s very rewarding to hear those who struggle with reading aloud continue to improve.
We are also incorporating more small group shared reading in my own classroom in other areas, such as science and social studies. With this being my first year as an elementary classroom teacher, I’m learning much more than the students, it seems.
