Make the very most out of reading with young children Julia.email@example.com
Our best readers at Y6 Begin by being interested in books at a very early age They take note of words and word shapes They understand and relate to the stories they hear They predict what’s going to happen next They join in with repetitive rhythms and rhymes
Before reading Children have developed spoken language Print and spoken language are different modes of communication that share a common language We use our ears to hear spoken language We use our eyes to read written language But written language is not just speech written down and this difference poses challenges for the early reader
The reading curriculum for schools Reading to children Shared reading Guided reading One-to-one reading Home reading Libraries and book corners
Speech and language This age is key for development of speech and language and you might notice your child using new words and phrases almost every day. They will also be asking endless questions! Three yearsThree years: using new words and phrases almost daily. Four yearsFour years: children understand and say lots of words and sentences. Five yearsFive years: learning to listen, understand and share ideas at school.
Ofsted getting them ready early independence and choice knowledge of books and individual authors word reading (decoding using phonics and knowledge of common exception words) comprehension (literal, inferential and evaluative) higher-order reading skills, including appreciation of an author’s style, awareness of themes, similarity and differences between texts support from school and home enjoyment awareness of own progress and development as a reader teaching, expectations and the school’s reading culture.
Guided reading process in school Book introduction Strategy check Independent reading Returning to the text Pupils’ response to the text
Book introduction Teacher shares the lesson focus Orientation – teacher reads title, gives overview, uses same verb tense Debugging the book – teacher discusses illustrations, alerts the reader to new text structures and encourages the reader to ask questions
Strategy check The strategy check reinforces the learning objective for the lesson and prepares readers for successful independent reading Teacher prompts children to articulate what they will do if they become stuck while reading Over time the focus will change depending on the different skills that children need to attend to
Independent reading Each child reads independently. This is definitely not a ‘round robin’ activity The teacher will listen to each child read, prompting them according to their prior knowledge This is also time for the teacher to consider assessment and next learning steps
Return to the text After independent reading the teacher works with the whole group to reinforce the lesson focus The teacher can focus on common errors The teacher asks challenging questions that develop reading skills of inference and deduction There will be plenty of group discussion during the stage
Guided reading process in school Book introduction - talk to the child about the book content Strategy check – point out some of text, sound out some simple words if you can Independent reading – read to the child, unfolding new knowledge as you go along Returning to the text – go back to an interesting point in the book and talk together Pupils’ response to the text – ask the child if they enjoyed it and what other books they’d like to read next time?
Fact Reading makes you cleverer The more you read the better you get at reading The more you read the more you find out and the cleverer you get
High frequency words Are the words that occur more than any other words First 25 words make up 25% of what we read! Early learning of these words comprises of early exposure – maybe you could use some in your book area or sometimes point them out in reading? the, and, a, to, said, in, he, I, of, it, was, you, they, on, she, they, on, she, is, for, at, his, but, that, with, all, we, can
Early reading strategies for beginner readers Can recognise own name Can hold book correctly Can recognise front and back cover Can understand that reading is made from writing Can understand that print conveys meaning Can differentiate between text and pictures Can name some letters (capitals and lower case) Can talk about stories and use pictures to support Locate title Open front cover Turn pages appropriately Understand that left page comes before right Understand the meaning of the text Predict the story line and some vocabulary
