Paired Reading

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

The primary 3 and 5 children started Paired Reading this week and this will continue every Friday. Paired reading is a simple yet very effective way of improving a child’s reading. It helps to improve their basic reading ability (i.e. the ability to read words quickly and accurately) and their ability to understand whatever is being read. The Primary 5 children will be the mentors to the Primary 3 children. The children really enjoy this activity.
