Paired Reading Guide
We encourage Paired Reading at Roman Way where a pupil and adult read together at the same time, as this builds children's confidence and self-esteem. This 'Quick Guide' will help you to practice Paired Reading at home with your child.
When should we do Paired Reading?
Try to find some time to read together at home everyday! Sharing books not only improves learning, it's also a great way to relax after a busy day.
Choose a book and find somewhere comfortable and peaceful to read. It's time to switch-off the television, tablet and games console. Also, agree on a signal children will use when they decide to read by themselves i.e. a tap on the table.
Once finished, ask your child some questions about the book:
Please help your child to complete their Reading Diary and sign it for them.
Remember to have fun together! If you or your child stumble on tricky sentences you can always talk about the pictures inside the book! Where's the story set? How do the characters feel?
