Engaging Young Readers with Text through Shared Reading Experiences
Honchell, Barbara; Schulz, Melissa
Journal of Inquiry and Action in Education, v4 n3 p59-67 2012
This article explores Shared Reading as an instructional approach that mimics home reading experiences in a group setting for young children. The article includes information about how to use enlarged text as the teacher provides experiences with books that first focus on the meaning and enjoyment of the story and then shifts to how print works and conventions that enhance the meaning of the story. The importance of being able to see the print in enlarged text that allows the teacher to extend the read aloud experience to include viewing print in big books and charts establishing the beginnings of visual attention to letters, words, and punctuation is examined.
