2. Why? Paired Reading – tried and tested Pupil choice: Selecting own material, choosing to read alone or together = enthusiasm Lack of pressure: Help given with words, thinking time, no sense of failure Self-esteem: Lots of praise given, encouraged to read = motivation and enjoyment Attention: More time spent individually than possible in class, etc.

3. Meaning from reading: Not always having to sound out, get words right first time, so can concentrate on making sense of what they are reading Learning by example: Given good example of pronunciation, expression and how punctuation affects reading Practice: More time to read, to come across new words, etc. Why? Paired Reading – tried and tested

Talk about title, cover, illustrations etc. Start by reading together Match your speed to the pupil’s, adjusting if pupil reads too slowly or quickly Pause to ask questions and discuss what you are reading

6. How? Paired Reading techniques – mistakes If a mistake is made, allow four seconds for pupil to correct it If not corrected, say word for pupil and ask them to repeat correctly Use praise – think about your body language. See ‘Ways to Praise’ Read together until signal given.

7. How? Paired Reading techniques – reading alone Pupil agrees signal – knock, tap etc to show when they want to read alone. Praise for reading alone. Pupil reads alone.
