Shared Reading

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.

IMG_1511We 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.




The smiles say it all. IMG_1514

  1. How awesome that your kids are enjoying each other so much! What a great way to get your younger ones interested in reading. I bet the first few years are kinda that way, feel like you are learning more than they are!


  2. I think this is a great idea. It sounds like a great idea to get younger kids interested in reading and wanting to read. I observed a classroom that does this, and the kids loved it! Reading and sharing with each other always put smiles on their faces.


  3. I have seen schools using reading buddies in elementary school and I think it is such a great idea! I think reading becomes more special this way. The younger kids love hearing older kids read and the older kids work so well with younger kids. It looks like they are all having fun in the pictures.
