Planning Forms

Shared Reading is a time where the teacher and students work together to create meaning.

You want to vary the genres use each week during Shared Reading.

Read more about Shared Reading and how these planning forms can add value to your Shared Reading block each day.

Within Shared Reading, students are guided through a text along with the teacher to build and develop comprehension together. Check out these posts...


Included in this product for sale in my Literacy Treasures shop are a variety of planning pages for Shared Reading for different genres and types of texts.

Included are templates for planning Shared Reading for:

  • Poetry

  • Reader’s Theater Scripts

  • Visual, Print and Digital Media

  • Music Lyrics

  • Informational/Short Stories/Biographies

Included is an overview of Shared Reading and a suggested rotation for spiraling the different genres and text types through each grading period.

The planning sheets for each genre or text type are based on ideas from Text Savvy by Sarah Daunis and Maria Iams.

Until next time...
