Two students were playing “teacher” and “student”. They were fully engaged in reading the message together on the chart and by documenting this learning a great deal can be learned and recorded about the literacy knowledge of these two students.

One student would take a turn reading and then the other. They would assist each other whenever they needed help identifying a word. After reading the chart, they decided to move to the Word/Name Wall where they proceeded to read all the names on the wall, again taking turns and helping each other whenever necessary. Finally, they moved to the teacher’s chair and took turns as the teacher.

The student playing the role of the teacher showed the book (which the teacher had read that day) to her friend and talked about the cover and some of the pictures and then proceeded to read the book. She then asked questions related to the story she had read and the other student answered the questions, after which, they changed places and repeated the process. These students were completely focussed on these activities for the entire Learning Centre time.

Consider the learning that these two students have demonsrated.Two students were playing “teacher” and “student”.They were fully engaged in reading the message together on the chart and by documenting this learning a great deal can be learned and recorded about the literacy knowledge of these two students.One student would take a turn reading and then the other.They would assist each other whenever they needed help identifying a word.
