Reading and books were the cause and the foundation on which I decided to write the thesis in didactic literature. The leitmotiv of my work was the knowledge of the literature, using the method of reading in sequels. By choosing the theme "method of reading long texts: comparison between the 1st and 5th class", I wanted to check children's memorization of long texts. In the theoretical part I highlighted the differences between the traditional and communication teaching literature. Furthermore, I have broken down and explained in detail the stages of school interpretation of the text and described children's viewing angle or perspective. I took the essence of reading development, coinciding with the various stages of child development. Because the teacher in his work and preparing for lessons bases on the curriculum, I examined the updated curriculum for Slovene and appear as objectives relating to, or can be achieved with a book Drejček in trije Marsovčki. The empirical part of the thesis is based on research and comparing the responses of children to a method of reading in sequels. I was interested in the difference in memory prior reading among students 1st and 5th grade. I planed the project of reading in seqals for one 1st grade class and one section of the 5th grade. A total of 38 students. In this thesis are lesson plans for each lesson, and an analysis of lessons, and interpretation of the results of worksheets. Reading in sequels were, by the pupils, positively received, therefore it should be incorporated into lessons several times a year.
