Shared Reading, is where the teacher models and support students. Generally, the teacher reads for enjoyment first then later, the teacher may focus on theme, title, cover, illustrations, and predictions. Significantly, it is during this type of reading that student contribution is strongly encouraged. Language concepts are emphasised, and in this way, typical phonics/grammar knowledge is strengthened. Guided Reading is an instructional reading strategy during which a teacher works with small groups of children who have similar reading processes and needs.
If I teach English someday, I want my students to learn how to express themselves when they write. It would be exciting to be able to sit down and read my students papers. After we constructed our essays, we had to complete a peer review activity. I enjoyed helping people look over their essays and give them suggestions on how they could improve their essays. The peer review activity made me open my eyes and see that I enjoy helping
The quote above from “Improving Adolescent Literacy: Content Area Strategies at Work” by Douglas Fisher and Nancy Frey, squares with my thinking because I believe giving reading assignments to students must be purposeful. In my grade years, I would always get irritated with my teachers for assigning reading without purpose. I believe teachers should give worksheets to the students when they assign reading. Assigning worksheets that go along with the text helps the students read more in depth. It also shows the students what they should be focusing on which helps the students understand the material.
The results showed that students obtained a moderate mean in fluency via repeated reading. Not only do some student need assistance at times but also a good model to read so that they can know how to read properly since they will be reading on their own. Older struggling readers need to have a good model when reading .Model reading involves a good model e.g. . ; teacher, peer, tape recording or computer read the passage and students listen and or read along.
Introduction This paper’s purpose is to define what a Read Aloud is and how it is utilized effectively in a classroom. Then I will discuss the benefits of Read Alouds on a student’s Literacy skills. Definition “Read Aloud is a strategy in which a teacher sets aside time to read orally to students on a consistent basis from texts above their independent reading level but at their listening level,” ("THE COMPONENTS OF EFFECTIVE READ ALOUDS," n.d.). Effective Utilization of Read Alouds Read Alouds benefit students have the capability to benefit students in an extremely positive light, but for this to happen, they have to be done in the correct manner. To begin planning a for a read aloud, the teacher must choose a book that is developmentally
I fixed this by helping them sound out words and phrases to read the book with me. A main focus I tried to implement is establishing a positive mental set at the beginning of each day and lesson. This allowed the students to become more ready for the lesson and become more interested in the lesson from the start. Another way that I did this was once the book was finished I would hand them a piece of paper and let them draw out or re-write their favorite part of the book. This allowed them to review the book and see what we had just talked about.
The Curious Writer had helped me understand learning goals #2 & #3 by providing examples, description and different scenarios to the topic. This allowed me to refresh my memory, of the basic writing process, grammars, and punctuation. Throughout this book it always bring back the two motive for writing which is to communicate and to discover. This book provided me with exercise that are similar to the ones I’m required to do while working on my in class or take home ‘essay. In chapter 1, they quoted that “Critical thinking and making connection between reading and writing is a good way for us to practice our writing by the influence of others”.
The students will read the passage to the teacher and get “graded”” on their fluency rate, based on their handout. As Rasinski mentions in, Why Reading Fluency Should Be Hot! “an authentic approach to deep or repeated readings involves students rehearsing a text over the course of a day or several days for the purpose of eventually performing he text for an audience.” He also talks about how “this approach to reading allows students to make significant gains in reading with meaningful expression and to demonstrate greater comprehension of passages read orally and silently and allows them to fine greater satisfaction and enjoyment in authentic reading
All children need instruction; modelling, explaining, and demonstrating are very important teaching activities if children are to learn to read and write. Teaching assistant can model the reading and writing by engaging in them while children observe; reading aloud to children, which provides a model of how reading sounds and how stories go. Reading aloud is a way to model fluent reading. Teaching assistant can discuss books and stories while modelling the thinking process leading to understanding. Teaching assistant talks through the process step-by-step to show the children how things are done, for example, how to make, confirm or change predictions.
This is a milestone that children reach when reading because they learn how to read from top to bottom, from left to right and begin to understand what the purpose for punctuation is. In this stage children also start to use both upper and lower case letters in their writing. At this age their attention span becomes longer and they can start to read their own writing which can be very exciting. Educators can support this stage by incorporating writing activities during the day. This way children have time to practice writing and enhance their understanding of letters and sounds.
