Reading Kid’s Books

Every year, our Level 1 classes and higher learn to read kid’s books in an interactive way using researched-based literacy strategies used by teachers throughout NYC. You can see weekend students in action above. Here are some of the strategies they used:

Pre-Reading:

Talking about the pictures on the cover

Identifying the author and illustrator

Making predictions about what the story is going to be about

During Reading:

Changing your voice

Using body language

Discussing important vocabulary

Asking questions to check comprehension

Asking for opinions and making more predictions

Post-Reading:

Reviewing important vocabulary

Re-telling/summarizing the story

Connecting the story to readers’ real lives
