2016 Term 4 Red 2/3 Reading Group
Red guided reading texts include very familiar themes and ideas, drawing mainly on New Zealand contexts and settings. They have language that is likely to reflect oral language patterns. All ideas are clearly illustrated.
Students are learning to process print. They are reading groups of words together in phrases. They make meaning by applying their increasing familiarity with print details, their growing knowledge of sentence structures, their expanding reading vocabulary, and their growing ability to use the illustrations.
