I read my pasting homework to my teacher. She always knows if l checked it before l pasted it.
Every day I write a new story in my writing book. My teacher helps me to think about something to write about. She helps me with the parts that l don’t know. Sometimes l use sound boxes to help me hear the sounds.
I have a go at some words on the practice page and l learn to write new words.
My teacher writes my story on a long strip of paper. She cuts it up so I can put it back together. I have to remember my story and search for the right words and then check it. I take it home so l can paste it in my homework book.
Sometimes the teacher gives me the magnetic letters so l can sound the parts.
My teacher is showing me how to do all the things that good readers do!
- I will match the number of words that l say with the number of words that l can see.
- As l turn the page l will think about what could happen next and I will check the picture to see if l am right.
- I will put all the words together smoothly so it sounds like talking.
- I will sound like a good reader and not like a robot.
- I will change my voice when l see the talking marks.
- I will read without rushing so that l can check if the words look right and sound right.
- I will ask myself what else l can do before l ask for help.
- I will look past the first letter(s).
- I will look through the whole word so l can say the right ending.
- I will only use my finger to help me check each word when I’m reading the tricky bits that l don’t know very well.
- I will listen to myself so l know when my reading doesn’t make sense.
- I will listen to myself so l know when my reading doesn’t sound right.
- I will use my eyes so l know when the words do not look right.
- I will look at the start of the word and get my mouth ready to say the first letter.
- Even when l think l know what will come next I will quickly look through all the words to check that l am right.
- I will have more than one go when l am stuck.
- I will look carefully at the word and think about what l know.
- I will ask myself what could be a word that starts like that and would make sense there.
