Paired Reading 

Ms. Hooban is organising paired reading at the moment for junior and senior infants. The children love the opportunity of reading with a pupil from either fifth or sixth class. It generates higher interest and engagement in reading as well as the improvement in social and communication skills.[gdl_gallery title=”pairedreading” width=”IMAGE_SRC” height=”IMAGE_HEIGHT” ]
