Paired Reading is an ideal way of improving reading fluency skills among children. Paired reading simply means an adult - preferably a parent or relative - reading with a child for 10 minutes every day. The strategy involves reading aloud with your child until they are reading confidently. They will then give you an agreed signal to stop reading so they can carry on, on their own.
It is an ideal way of helping your child to become an independent reader. It works on building up the positives and successes rather than concentrating on mistakes.
Parents who have undertaken Paired Reading report that not only does the child's reading improve but that child's self-esteem has improved, and generally the child is more co-operative at home also. Please see below a video showing paired reading as well as a guide for parents.
