Shared reading is an interactive reading experience in which all your learners can see and interact with the text. It is a whole group reading experience. You might use a song or poem on a chart, a big book, a printed article, the morning message, language experience stories, a basal story, or a trade book.
Shared reading is something that ALL children, at any beginning stage of literacy development will benefit from because it helps them to: construct coherent thought processes, like remembering, problem-solving, and decision-making. activate and develop background knowledge. grow their vocabulary.
Shared reading is a strategy that can support the teaching of the Big Six elements of reading: oral language and early experiences with print, phonological awareness, phonics, vocabulary, fluency and comprehension.
A main difference between shared vs. guided reading is that during shared reading, interactions are maximized. During guided reading, thinking is maximized. During guided reading students actively participate in the group reading process – by listening or reading – and making their own conclusions about the text.
How to use shared reading
- Introduce the story by discussing the title, cover, and author/illustrator.
- Read the story aloud to the students using appropriate inflection and tone.
- Conclude the reading by reserving time for reactions and comments.
- Re-read the story and/or allow time for independent reading.
On the flip side, there are some drawbacks:
- Shared reading can become an exercise in listening comprehension if both partners are not looking at the text; listening alone does not strengthen reading comprehension.
- You cannot assess independent reading comprehension if students are not reading independently.

The first consideration is that the text for shared reading should be worth reading and rereading. The content, the story, and the language must engage the readers. In selecting texts, consider the readers’ ages, previous experiences, and levels of expertise in processing text.
What is a five finger retell?
The Five Finger Retell Reading Strategy is designed to help students recall the five key elements of a story. The five key elements of a story are the setting, characters, problems, events, and solution. When a reader can recall these five key elements, he or she should be able to successfully summarize most stories.
