Shared Reading Packs

Grade Levels: K-1

Shared reading is the whole-group instructional model of a balanced reading program. Teachers model the reading process, while students participate in cooperative reading, similar to the lap reading some of them may experience at home. During shared reading, the teacher uses a Read-Together Big Book, which contains large, vivid illustrations and enlarged easy-to-see text. The teacher first reads the book aloud to students, pointing carefully to each word and modeling how to read the book. Repeated readings of the same Big Book deepen and reinforce students' understanding of phonological awareness, concepts of print, phonics, vocabulary, and sense of story.
