Chalk Talk: Types of Reading
When students tell parents about what they have done in reading class, parents may become confused as to what some of the different terms mean. Independent reading is the time that a child spends reading quietly by themselves. They do not have anyone guiding them as to the pace they are reading, however students need to read at a level that aids in their comprehension. Read Aloud is when the teacher shares books that are aimed at the students’ interest level. The books are also at a level that the students are able to read themselves. Guided reading helps students learn reading strategies while they are reading with other students that are at their reading level. Shared reading is when a book is read by the teacher while students follow along. With this vocabulary, parents are able to talk with the children about their reading class with ease.
