This group are independent readers but they will still read with their LA 3 times per week to develop fluency and build comprehension.

Ready to Read texts at Gold are complemented by Junior Journal texts, providing students with a wide range of text types and topics and supporting a range of reading purposes that are increasingly cross-curricular.

Students understand that texts have purposes and are written for audiences. They confidently use a range of processing and comprehension strategies to make meaning and think critically about longer and more complex texts. They monitor their reading and draw on a wide range of problem-solving strategies when meaning breaks down. They are using texts more often to meet demands across the curriculum. They usually read silently.
