2017 Term 4 Fancy Chicken Blue Reading Group
Blue guided reading texts include some contexts and settings that are likely to be familiar but may be outside the student’s direct experience. Many high-frequency words are evident. Topic or interest words are likely to be in a student’s oral vocabulary and are strongly supported by illustrations and context.
Students continue to gain control of the reading process. They monitor their own reading, search for and use multiple sources of information, and self-correct errors. They recognise many high-frequency words automatically. They begin to read some sections of texts silently.
