What is happening?

Where are they?

What do you think is going to

happen?

Reading Strategies
  • This term we are working on reading behaviours. (What you do when you read.)
  • When students have solid letter sound knowledge and a collection of sight words they will require more complex texts.
  • This is when strategies are required to work out unfamiliar words and keep the reading fluent and meaningful.
5 talk about the story
5. Talk about the story.
  • Ask questions: Who/what/when/where/why/how?

Are the answers on the page? What did Sally plant?

Is the answer inferred either in the pictures or in the text? Did all of the beans grow?

Is the answer from your own knowledge or experience? How does Sally feel? (exclamation mark/ darker font/ shouted/ calling Mum)
