2021 Term 1: Reading Level 3 Melva and Suze HBs
We are running a complimentary (where possible) literacy program where writing and reading are linked in the same morning session, 3 times a week. Other curriculum areas will also tie into these sessions to create rich learning experiences including our shared Beach ecology inquiry. This will also include independent activities developed through seesaw activities to develop cognitive skills.
We will focus on two or three texts a week. The LA will read with the children and support the modelling of decoding and comprehension strategies.
Students also use independent reading skills, where they apply the strategies they have learned over the week.
Guided reading sessions could also occur using the Sharp Reading strategy to read aloud together and individually share comprehension and then one of four follow up thoughts,
visualisation, links to prior learning, links to text, predictions.
Through these strategies, students will use level 3 skills to:
Integrate sources of information, processes, and strategies with developing the confidence to identify, form, and express ideas.
Show a developing understanding of how texts are shaped for different purposes and audiences.
Show a developing understanding of ideas within, across, and beyond texts.
Show a developing understanding of text structures.
