Sharpen Reading Activities


Oral Reading

In this activity, Learners read books and stories out loud to you. This activity takes place outside of the Sharpen Reading platform. We strongly recommend that Learners and instructors spend 15–20 minutes at the end of each lesson reading and enjoying some books together. Text reading practice such as this is an essential ingredient of a Learner's continued growth in reading skill. Learners with strong foundational skills will be able to automatically recognize many new words with just 1–4 exposures, and the most efficient, most useful, and most enjoyable way of promoting this growth in reading vocabulary is by reading good texts.
