Paired Reading

Whitnash Primary uses Paired Reading as a reading intervention for children having some difficulty with reading.

Paired Reading is a research-based fluency strategy used with readers who lack fluency.  In this strategy, children read aloud to each other.  When using partners more fluent readers can be paired with less fluent readers, or children who read at the same level can be paired to reread a story they have already read.  Paired reading can be used with any book, taking turns reading by sentence, paragraph, page or chapter.

Why Use Paired Reading?


  • It helps students work together.

  • It encourages co-operation and supports peer-assisted learning.
