Shared reading provides children with engaging, low-risk opportunities to apply and practice essential literacy behaviors. Shared reading, implemented effectively, strengthens children's competence and confidence as readers.

In this PD Resource Kit, participants will see kindergarten, first and second grade students actively involved in shared reading. Kim Holsberry, an outstanding classroom teacher, demonstrates ways not only to introduce and reinforce concepts of print and word work strategies, but also to boost young readers' comprehension skills - all in the context of shared reading.
