This post is a shared reading lesson room 11 completed last week.
I went through the story before the lesson began and wrote the difficult words on orange pieces of paper. The students got one each and they became the expert on this word by looking it up in a dictionary or using their prior knowledge. When we read the story, once we came to the difficult words the expert had their turn to tell the class what the word meant.
