Balanced Literacy: Shared Reading

Modeled ReadingShared ReadingGuided ReadingIndepend. Reading

Modeled WritingShared WritingGuided WritingIndepend. Writing

Shared Reading provides my class with an opportunity to gather at the carpet and share in the reading experience.  Enlarged text is a must!  We use Big Books (purchased or teacher created) and Charts (poems/songs/rhymes/chants).  Many of our science and social studies standards are covered during our Shared Reading time.  Our monthly Shared Reading routine generally follows the same pattern.  The first half of the month, we enjoy reading the selections, discussing them, and generally familiarizing ourselves with them.  During the second half the month, we take a closer look at each selection, and we add it to our poetry notebooks.  The poems and songs below are have been used with K and 1st students.
