A Guide To Reading With Children

This year parents, assistant teachers, reading volunteers, teachers and even other young readers have asked us how to effectively read alongside children.

As a result, we created this guide to reading with children. It’s available to download below.

It is split up into a few sections and includes the following:

  1. Sharing and making explicit what it is good young readers do.
  2. Explaining what you should do when reading alongside children.
  3. Explaining your role as a ‘reader-thinker’.
  4. Outlining what the best things you can do when helping a child to read.
  5. Naming the worst things you can when helping a child to read.
  6. A short explanation about how readers go about decoding text.
  7. What to do before you start reading.
  8. What to do whilst you are reading.
  9. What to do after you’ve read.
  10. What sorts of things you can focus on when writing in reading records books.

We hope you find it useful!
