  2. 2. Reading Aloud •Reading Aloud is very important for a child’s developing literacy and should be a part of every individual or group lesson. •Students are exposed to new vocabulary, concepts, different kinds of story structures, fluency and expression. •A brief game related to the reading, or to practice a skill (10 - 15 minutes) may be included in the lesson.
  3. 3. Modelled Writing • Model writing through mini lessons such as teaching one skill at a time to help them master and use independently. • Pick up a sentence or short paragraph to reveal the complex combination of processes that have formed it.

  4. 4. Shared Reading • Students join in or share the reading of a book or other text while guided and supported by a teacher. • The teacher often uses big books with enlarged print and illustrations. • Students can draw a scene from the book using a drawing app or write a different story ending with a twist using a writing app. Paint Joy (pics can be shared as .png) Book Creator (1 book only)
  5. 5. Shared Writing • The teacher transcribes the entire text while engaging students in a rich discussion about how the text should be composed. • Students can engage in adding adjectives, adverbs etc… Taught to small groups or a whole class in briskly paced, 5- to 20-minute lessons. • Ask students to research information, videos etc…. about the topic to extend their background and language knowledge. Share writing on iLearn or Padlet
  6. 6. Word Study • Knowledge of words continues to be one of the best predictors of reading achievement, yet vocabulary appears to be diminishing in today’s students. • Rather than all students learning the same words at the same time, in the same manner, students can be engaged in a wide variety of games that appeal to visual, auditory and tactile senses. Customisable apps
  7. 7. Interactive Writing • Interactive writing provides an active learning experience to develop writing skills. • The teacher talks with the students to establish what they will write The text is constructed by the pupils with the teacher giving help. • Interactive writing is all in all a very effective way for teachers to help students begin to learn to write.

  8. 8. Guided Reading • Guided reading gives students the chance to apply the strategies they already know to new text. • The text is about right for students in the group. It is not too easy, yet not too hard, and offers a variety of challenges to help readers become flexible problem solvers.
  9. 9. Guided Reading • They focus on meaning but use problem-solving strategies to figure out words they don’t know, deal with difficult sentence structure, and understand concepts or ideas they have never before encountered in print.
  10. 10. Guided Writing • In guided writing, teachers continually provide feedback, redirection and expansion of ideas. • It works well to put similar needs together and address them at the same time. • Teacher utilizes prompts and clues to help develop ideas and organization. .
  11. 11. Guided Writing • Working with small groups works well for teaching creative writing as so many children struggle with formulating ideas. • During a writer's workshop, walk around the classroom and stop at students’ desks and have them read what they are working on and ask what they might be struggling with
  12. 12. Independent Reading • Independent reading allows students the chance to “practice” the strategies they’ve learned through guided reading, shared reading and teacher read alouds. • Students can read confidently and are actually excited about their ability to read with level appropriate materials.
  13. 13. Independent Reading • They have greater control over what they want to learn as they select their reading books. Reading becomes a priority when students have some ownership in the reading process. Read or download free books
  14. 14. Independent Reading Activities 4 activities that will engage students in sharing what they read. •Illustrate an important character or event in the story. •Create an advertisement to promote the book. Paint Joy (pics can be shared as .png) Advert Creator
  15. 15. Independent Reading Activities 4 activities that will engage students in sharing what they read. •Have students pick out words they are unfamiliar with and make a word wall. •Make a bookmark that represents the theme or main idea of the book. Answergarden.ch
  16. 16. Independent Writing (15 – 30 mins) • Students apply the mini-lesson writing skill or strategy to their own writing and continue in- process work on their writing. • Students may engage in peer review. • As students work independently, the teacher confers with other students or small group for a short targeted writing instruction. • The teacher may also work on a piece of writing.
  17. 17. Independent Writing (15 – 30 mins) Sharing (5-15 minutes): •Students read their work aloud to the entire class or to a partner and elicit feedback in the form of praise, questions, or polish. • Praise communicates to the writer something that he has done well and should keep in the piece of writing.
  18. 18. Independent Writing (15 – 30 mins) Sharing (5-15 minutes): •Questions address areas of the writing that are unclear or confusing and may lead to the polish or recommendation for improvement. •Offering feedback should be modelled explicitly and offered respectfully.
