Shared reading allows a child who can't read words yet to pretend read a familiar book. If your child can't read yet, you should read this book to your child a number of times before asking a child to share read this story.If your child is beginning to read, you can have a child practice reading words. You can get your child ready to read words in this book by using magnetic letters. One way to help a child learn words is to present the words on a board, mix them up, and have a child put the words back together making the sounds as the letters are put in place.
These are the words a child will be reading for part of the chick. (said, cried, me, to, the, not) Present the words on a magnetic letter board, sound them out, have your child mix them up, and put the words back together.
Did your child have success putting these words back together? Do you think your child is ready to read these words in a book? Then you can give your child the part of the chick without reading the story to your child a few times first. You'll want to show the word chick. Talk about quotation marks. Tell your child he or she has the part of the chick, and you will read the rest.
Here's a video of me share reading The Chick and the Duckling with my daughter.
