2016 Term 4 Green Reading Group
Green guided reading texts include some contexts and settings that may be outside students’ direct experience but can be easily related to it. Many high-frequency words are evident. Texts include a few words or phrases that may not be in the children’s oral vocabulary but are well supported within the text. Illustrations support and extend the meaning but may not exactly match the words.
Students draw on a developing range of problem-solving strategies to approach the challenges they meet as they read. They monitor their own reading, search for and use multiple sources of information, and self-correct errors with increasing competence. Students think critically about what they read. They read with phrasing. They read some sections of texts silently.
