How Does Miss Farah Teach Reading?

Posted on: February 16, 2010


Every week we have a new reading lesson. Teaching reading is a hard task especially for students whose English is a second Language.What I do is the following:

Before I read I open to the cover of the story and ask them to predict what the story is about then when we read it they will check if their predictions were correct.

1. I read the story and discuss the illustrations.

2. I read it another time without explanations this time.

3. I write the title of the story, author, and illustrator on the board and the high frequency words. I explain the meaning of the words and we try to put them into sentences. (Many activities will be done afterwards concerning the high frequency words).

4. Student follows with his/her finger as I read.

7. When we turn to the next page I ring the bell.

6. Then we have CHORAL READING: meaning we read all together and we clap our hands when they read one of the high frequency words which is also a very good strategy to recognize the words in sentences.

Here the students clap when they read the word that is highlited in yellow. (high frequency words)

7. After we are done, we have PAIR READING. Meaning students next to each other will pair up and each will read a page. Students here tend to correct for their classmates which is a great thing.

🙂 HAPPY READING!! 🙂
