Interactive Read Aloud The teacher reads aloud to the whole class. A carefully selected body of children’s literature is used in a variety of genres for enjoyment, language, writer’s craft and comprehension.
Shared Reading Students join the teacher to read aloud (poetry, big books, songs, etc.) in unison from an enlarged text for the purpose of support in language, vocabulary, fluency, book features, content, and comprehension.
Reading Workshop Guided Reading The teacher works with a small group of students who have similar reading processes. Teacher supports students in fluency, reading strategies, vocabulary and comprehension.
