Reflection: Lesson Planning Literary Stories Can Contain Factual Information - Section 4: Collaborative Activity


Even though I am aware that many of my students could read The Very Hungry Caterpillar on their own, some of the reading problems were reduced when I read it first.  When there is only one copy of a book or text being share with several students some reading problems with comprehension and fluency may occur.  From the picture, Sharing the Book, you can see how not all students in the group can clearly see the words and pictures, this distracts from the listening and comprehension.

It also helps my beginning reading group stay focused and finish the work when I read with them.
