Colour banded books The colours show the curriculum levels and should help your child reading by making sure your child has a suitable level of book that supports them with their next steps. They should be able to read about 90-95% of the book to help them succeed and gain confidence.
Your comments are invaluable! Just by noting your child’s fluency, interest and understanding supports teachers in the partnership with you and your child. Please comment in your child’s reading journal.
Reading every day with your child. Just 10 minutes a day, every day could improve your child’s reading enormously. You don’t have to be an expert, showing an interest is vital.
How do the teachers read with your child? Discuss title and cover first. Make predictions. Explore the pictures. Discuss any difficult vocabulary or ideas. Don’t correct all errors on first reading. Give the child time to use a strategy. Suggest a strategy. Ask them to reread sentences for meaning once they have worked them out. Ask them their opinions about what they have read.
Questions you might ask your child. Do you like the main character? Why? Why not? Where and when is the book set, could it be set anywhere else? Which is your favourite part and why? What exciting words has the author used that you may want to ‘magpie’. Why do you think the author chose that title?
Strategies for reading? What would you do? I spotted a nelly on the sea shore! A dzho is commonly found in the Himalayas.
Strategies Sound out and blend Use finger to identify word Use picture cues Check is it a tricky word? Miss out the word then return to it and reread for meaning. You said … does that make sense? Try again.
Discussion points Questions where you can find the answer in the text. How does the writing make you feel? How do the words help you imagine what is happening in the text? Identify the features that help you know what sort of text it is.
What is important? Your child enjoys reading time. That you read stories to them or tell them stories. That you discuss the story. Eg Would you like to be a character in the story. Which is your favourite part and why?
