Learning to Read: Ugly Duckling, level 12
Hi, my name is Mrs Symons, I am a Reading Recovery teacher and I lead Reading across the Cabot Learning Federation. These sessions are perfect for children who are learning to read, working their way up through the colour book bands at school. I will post a new session every day and each week we will move up to the next book level.
The reading lesson in the video below is based on a green level 12 book, when listening to a child read at this level, it is useful to note the following:
- Books are getting longer so try to read only about 100 words a session, or at a good break in the story ( you could share the read or come back to it the next day)
Help them to do the following more and more by themselves :
· Keep up a good pace, with expression
· Use the letter sounds, general meaning and how we speak (grammar), to cross-check tricky bits
· Cope with several lines of text on a page without getting lost or giving up
· Talk about a character or what happens in the story, more fully
· Use a contents page in Non-Fiction books
Here is our latest reading session, we have now moved on to level 12 books!
