What is Shared Reading?

During shared reading, teacher and children read aloud a large version of an engaging text that is beyond children’s ability to read independently during whole group instruction. Texts provide early experiences with print and promote the development of reading processes. After the first reading, children take part in multiple, subsequent readings of the text. Children discuss the text and the teacher selects teaching points based on children’s needs. For additional enrichment and learning, children can read and listen to the text online in the classroom or at home with their families.

The Shared Reading Collection, PreK-4 (K-3 in Second Edition and PreK, 4 in First Edition) features an exquisite collection of original texts in a variety of genres that nurture students’ abilities to construct meaning in a supported context so they can enjoy reading and learn critical concepts of how texts work. The Shared Reading Collection has been transadapted into Spanish in Colección de Lectura compartida, PreK-2.
