Cambridge Primary English enables learners to communicate confidently and effectively . Following this curriculum framework will develop a first language competency in English which is designed to be successful in any culture and to promote cross-cultural understanding.
Reading is an integral part of language learning. It introduces children to new words and also reinforces the words that have been learnt over a period of time.
To enhance the same we introduced the concept of Pair Reading which is an effective style of teaching adopted in Cambridge curriculum.
Children were put in pairs and asked to read a book from the Waterford curriculum which has been taught in the class. Each pair was asked to read aloud together. The children read fluently. If a child was unable to read a word the partners assisted and helped each other to read. Peer assistance helped the children to retain words in their memory. This also helped to improve oral skills as they spoke more confidently with each reading activity.
It’s a positive technique which brings about confidence and helps build peer bonding.
