Shared Reading Shared Reading The whole class gets together to read  and discuss one work of literature. Purpose is to develop a sense of story  and narrative. A specific time is set aside for this  each day. Rereading favorite stories, rhymes,  chants, and poems is a part of this  format. Pleasure in reading and sharing is a  big part of this strategy.

Rhythmic books such as  Good Night  Moon,  helps children anticipate lines  and words as they become familiar  with the story. Repetitive books such as  The Three  Little Pigs  invite children to participate  and memorize the story by saying  repetitive lines.
