Familiar Reading

By: Glorie, Kirsten, Josi, Jennifer, and Christian

What is familiar reading?Familiar reading is rereading familiar texts and also includes students reading and rereading their own work, so I thought this activity was the best of both worlds. Students will listen to the teacher read a familiar story and write down words and/or phrases they like. Then, they will create a line poem that will become a part of the entire class poem. The students can then read and reread the class poem throughout the week and have it posted in the classroom or even perform it.

Characteristics of Familiar Reading:• Easy• Fluent• Flexible• Orchestrated

How is this apart of the literacy block?According to the powerpoint from class, familiar reading is not only rereading the same books but it is also students “reading at their own independent level and students choosing books themselves.”It is the last stop to the gradual “Teaching for Independence.” After modeling with read aloud, guided reading, shared reading, independent reading is the same thing as familiar reading.
