If you would like to share some read aloud stories, you can find some in our Read Aloud Stories folder.


Remember that, the Oxford Owl website has a range of free E-books for you to share stories at home. Once you sign up you can access the reading library.


Read a book! A new one, a borrowed one, an old favourite, just read! Then discuss the book together (see some good questions below). If you’re not sure what a word says, sound it out or use the pictures to help you.


Reading Prompts


BEFORE READING - What can you see on the front cover? Who is the author? Who is the illustrator? Can you find the title? What does it say? What do you think is going to happen in this story?


DURING READING - What do you think will happen next? Do you know what that word/sentence says? What does that word mean? What is happening in the picture?


AFTER READING - Did you guess the ending correctly? Was that what you thought would happen? Who was your favourite character? Why? Can you tell me the story in your own words? What was your favourite part? Were there any parts you didn’t like? Why?


Here a a couple of books to share together:

The Doorbell Rang

Watch this video at home. Discuss how many cookies Sam and Victoria had to share between them at the start of the story and how many children they had to share them with by the end of the story. 


Using 2 plates or pieces of paper, gather a set of small objects at home, you can use anything you want: socks, pens, crayons, straws, strawberries, grapes or even playdough. Discuss how many objects you can see. Count them to ensure you know how many there are altogether. Grab a handful of objects and place them on one plate and then place the remaining objects on the other plate. Is this fair? How can we share the objects equally. Together share the objects equally. Repeat this with different amounts of objects.
