Recently a teacher suggested the following reading format/outline as help to the volunteers in her room. Consider trying it with your student!
1. Talk about the pictures in the book
2. Scan for obscure vocabulary to preview (ex. ‘machine’ in a book about a farm)
3. Read together
4. Discuss the book– interesting things you learned from the book, if you liked the book, if you would read it again or recommend it to a friend?
