WHAT IS SHARED READING ?Shared reading is an interactive reading experience that occurs when students join in or share the reading of a book/ big book while guided and supported by a teacher or experienced reader.
It is an enjoyable cooperate reading activity where children participate in reading, learn critical concepts of howprint works, get the feel of learning andbegin to perceive themselves as readers. (Fountess & Pinnell,1996)
Why use story books..?• Students can have the experience and opportunity to explore a high level text.• Students can experience a creative and artistic learning environment.• Pictures/ illustration in the book can help the students take meaning from the text.• Students can have the opportunity to talk about the story and make prediction.
* The teacher can give students the opportunity to practice in Wh Question orally. * It creates a fun and enjoyable lesson toachieved the student’s needs in the lesson.
How to Conduct Shared Reading?a) Introduce the story- discuss the title, cover, author, illustration.- Ask students to make predictions regarding what they story might be about. b) Read the story aloud.- Use appropriate tone, inflection.- Pause and ask students to make prediction.- Ask brief questions to check students’ comprehension level.
