I will be updating this page once a week with a new Guided Reading text for you to read through.
Read the text out loud to yourself or to an adult and try to use expression in your voice.
Adults: Below are examples of questions you can ask your children as they are reading, focusing on key skills (see below).
Under each text are tasks focusing on one of the key reading skills.
Key Reading Skills
- Understanding the words that they have read (vocabulary);
- Inferring meaning from what they have read and to explain and justify using evidence;
- Summarising effectively including retelling and understanding the text in the correct sequence;
- Retrieving information from the text;
- Predicting what will happen later in the story;
-Explanation of themes and patterns across the text and understanding that the author has made choices for effect;
- Commenting on their own opinion and where they notice similarities and differences between texts.
