Tutor Time Reading Documents (Years 7-9) | KS3 Teaching Resource

Click on the links below to access three documents I’ve used this year as part of the tutor time reading programme at my school.  They’re nothing fancy, but I figure they might save you or others a job if they can be used or adapted.

Tips for Reading Aloud

Praise Letter Template

I should point out that the second document contains collective wisdom from the tutors at my school.  Props to all of them.  The suggestions emphasise the importance of routines and rightly show that reading aloud is a complex endeavour.

Before I sign-off, if you’re after some good short stories for your own programme, I recommend the two collections below:

A Change Is Gonna Come

Here I Stand: Stories that Speak for Freedom

Hope the stuff’s useful –



If you use the site regularly, it’d be great if you could make a small donation to help pay for the running of it. Any amount would be greatly appreciated.
