HB Pōhutukawa Level 3+ Reading T4 2021
We will focus on one text at least once 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.
Guided reading sessions may also use 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:
Select and use a range of processing and comprehension strategies; re-checking, re-reading, predicting cross text meaning, inferring.
Integrate information and prior knowledge with developing confidence.
Identify main and subsidiary ideas making connections in texts.
