DUO READING

Duet reading is done with a model reader, whose reading is fluid, which is paired with a less experienced reader. Each student reads a book of their choice. You can read the same book or a different book. The model reader begins: he reads a passage from the book while his partner listens and follows the reading. The partner then reads a passage from the book while the model reader listens, follows the reading, and supports the partner as needed.

POPCORN READING

When playing popcorn, students get into groups of two or three. Each student reads a book of their choice. You can read the same book or a different book. The partners take turns reading aloud. Whoever reads says “popcorn to…” and chooses a friend to continue reading.

READING TO A YOUNGER (OR OLDER)

When reading to a younger or older one, it will mean reading to a little or big brother, a little or big sister, a friend or a friend of a class of younger or a class of older.

OTHER IDEAS TO REINVEST AND FULLY USE THE READINGS
 

1- Invite the students to read to younger ones; your class can pair up with a class of little ones and read books to them. If necessary, your students can practice by reading the album one or more times before meeting their reading partners. This will count for the contest and in addition, your students help make children love reading.

2- Offer a reader's theater to your students. They must then reread certain passages from the books they have read several times and make a little sketch of it. At the same time, this allows you to work on oral communication.

3- Suggest that your pupils do a serial reading to another class or to classmates: the pupils therefore read aloud, 5 to 15 minutes a day, a little novel or an illustrated mini-novel, which they they will have read beforehand to know the story well.

4- Organize reading circles: each student chooses one or more passages from a book read beforehand. The pupils meet in a reading circle. They read and discuss the chosen passage (s), explaining, for example, why they liked that passage, what they thought about the actions of the characters in that passage, what they noticed about the style of the passage. the author, etc.

5- The preceding ideas can also be applied at home: for example, the pupil can read to a younger brother or sister, he can do a serial reading to his family, even a reader's theater with a parent or sibling.
