Reading in P3 Sean and Terry
“If we teach todays student’s as we taught yesterday’s, we rob them of tomorrow.” John Dewey
Approach Phonics – using letter sounds to build up words – first children need the recognise the sounds in language e.g. s-a-t Look say – recognising high frequency words through familiarity In a meaningful context – links with the unit, to understand read and make sense of text.
Phonics a for apple (Jolly phonics/zoo phonics/Alphablocks) Don’t need to know the name of the letter just the sound CVC – can then read many more than 100 words Instant success! Later learn double letter(oo,ch etc)
High frequency words Many of these words are non phonic Words that can not be built up using phonic skills we call them red words and children just have to learn them - was, I, is, here,
The techniques we use to promote and develop reading Instructional opportunities Hearing students read Shared reading Guided reading Encouraging reading Reading to students Modeling reading Book discussion groups Independent reading
Purpose of reading List all the situations where you must read
Reading strategies Shape of the letters Initial sound Build up words using identified sounds Look for clues in the picture Use the syntax of the sentence to identify the necessary part of speech Choose a word that makes sense in the sentence we are reading.
Use of PM benchmarks and other assessments PM administered at least twice a year. Continuums at least twice a year Words I know twice a year Sound and sight word checklists probably about once a month
Different types of questions Literal Reorganisational Inferential Evaluative Appreciative
