Reading and Reading Aloud <ul><li>A Commission on Reading, created by two major educational institutions in the US in 1983, spent 2 years going through the thousands of reading-related research projects published in the preceding 20 years. Its report, entitled Becoming a nation of readers included the following declaration: </li></ul><ul><li>“ The single most important activity for building the knowledge required for eventual success in reading is reading aloud to children.” </li></ul><ul><li>And most importantly, in finding evidence to support reading aloud in the classroom, they added: “It is a practice that should continue throughout the grades.” </li></ul>
    39. 42. Student / class / school challenges <ul><li>How many minutes can you read ? </li></ul><ul><li>If every child read, or was read to, for 15 minutes each day x 7 days = 105 minutes a week, x 7 weeks holiday = 735 minutes per child, x 20 children in a class = 14,700 minutes or 245 hours, x 10 classes in a school =147,000 minutes or 2,450 hours of reading </li></ul><ul><li>Mem Fox – 15 minutes is 1% of the day … (“and if you’re not prepared to spend 1% of your time reading to your child you shouldn’t be having children – get a goldfish”) </li></ul><ul><li>How many books can you read ? How many words ? </li></ul><ul><li>Article What reading does for the mind : 5 th graders reading for 14.2 minutes per day = 1,146,000 words read per year </li></ul><ul><li>If a 5 th grader reads for 14.2 minutes per day and reads 1,146,000 words per year, then that is 3,148 words per day (rate for younger children ? half ?) </li></ul><ul><li>7 weeks x 7 days per week = 49 days x 3,148 words = 154,252 words read during the school holidays, x 20 children in the class is over 3 million words ! </li></ul>
