Reading Time In Kindergarten

Shared Reading
Using an enlarged text that all children can see, the teacher involves the children in reading together. They can read the following:

  • Big books, poems and songs
  • The texts of interactive and shared writing

Guided Reading
The teacher works with a small group of children who are at a similar stage of reading development. The teacher selects and introduces new books and supports children reading the whole text by themselves, making teaching points during and after the reading.

Reading Aloud
The teacher reads aloud to the whole or small groups. A carefully selected body of children’s literature is used. The collection contains a variety of genres (nonfiction, author studies etc.) and is representative of our diverse society.
