It’s time to read Little Red Riding Hood – and show your understanding. It’s a European fairy tale from the 16th century.
- Read the text, quiet and aloud.
- Translate the text orally (pratöversätta).

How to make a word book: Kunskapshubben
Lesson plan, week 1:
– Introduction. I tell all my students about Lgr11, skills that we are working with, and how progress works – at school.
– We look at the book cover and discuss what we know about the story.
– Then we read page 1, slowly. I read it aloud, and then we read together, sentence by sentence.
– Next step is “pratöversätta”. We “read” the text in Swedish.
– And then we write words in our word book, in English and Swedish.
– We read page 1 again, very slowly, and talk about pronunciation.
– Next step is “pratöversätta”, again.
– Students who feel confident do the same thing in pairs, walking in the corridor.
– Ready? Pick your own book and read.
– Play the game “In-Other-Words” in small groups.
– Or do a “Picture-Talk!”.
– A word test. Translate the words and put the words in a sentence.
This is a good way to teach the students about reading-skills. I start with a classic fairy tale. We read together, two pages a week. And we read and talk a lot together. Some students thinks that this is too easy. So they get their own book and read, while me and the rest of the group practice again. Good focus!
