Welcome to The Giving Tree lesson plans page of my website. Whole-Class Reading - A New Method. Why a new method?

Whole-Class Reading - A New Method

After three years of teaching reading without using the guided reading carousel, we decided we needed to change the structure of whole-class reading lessons to get more out of the class texts. This change was inspired by three things: the rigour of the 2016 reading KS2 test and the heavy focus on vocabulary for understanding, Reading Reconsidered by Doug Lemov, Colleen Driggs and Erica Woolway, and this blog post by Nick Hart.

I met with Jess, our Y5 leader who is in charge of reading, to discuss how to move forward with whole-class reading in our school. Jess had completed some observations across the school so had an idea what was happening in different year groups. How I Created Flexible Seating for Next to Nothing. Reading for pleasure.

For this week's theme, I must admit to having a huge gap in my knowledge so I'm hoping lots of you lovely folk will be able to help me plug the gaps.

You see, on average we watch probably about 2-4 hours of TV a week at home so we don't often have time to hoover up some of the brilliant book-based programmes that children can discover new books through. When I was a whippersnapper, two TV programmes about books used to be required viewing. The mighty "Jackanory" is probably remembered by quite a few folk my age. Celebrities (even royalty) used to read a children's book over the space of a week, with some utterly scintillating titles and guests counting themselves amongst the Jackanory alumni.

If you have a class of 30, it’s likely that you have groups of 6, thus all 5 are heard read twice over the course of a week. The biggest obstacle to whole class reading has to be the question of ‘how do I get the same text in front of everyone’.

Fairies re-fashioned in A Midsummer Night’s Dream. Farah Karim-Cooper shows how Shakespeare combined classical and courtly traditions with medieval folk lore to create the benevolent fairies and changeling child of A Midsummer Night's Dream. In 1584, some 11 or 12 years before Shakespeare wrote A Midsummer Night’s Dream, the engineer and polymath Reginald Scot published his Discoverie of Witchcraft. Scot’s treatise, which made an important contribution to the wave of post-Reformation, anti-superstitious literature, attempted to dispel any popular beliefs that deflected from the true nature of the supernatural, which he maintained was exclusively divine.

Scot dismissed belief in fairies as absurd and relegated it to the trivial domain of domesticity and lower-class rurality. The Little Prince Printables, Classroom Activities, Teacher Resources.
