Paired Reading with the 6th class pupils and Junior Infants

 
 
 

The Wednesday afternoon visits by our 6th Class pupils to our Junior Infants for ‘Paired Reading’ have proved a big hit! The younger children love the individual attention given by our senior boys and girls and it is a great learning experience for both age groups. Great patience has been shown by the older children and they are capable of getting great conversation regarding the illustrations from their audience. The Junior Infants are encouraged to identify the sounds they have been leaning within the text on the pages of the stories, predict what might happen next in the story and make connections between the content of the story and their own experience. Many thanks to Ms Browne and her 6th class pupils for helping to further develop the Junior Infants love of reading and books.
