In class we use reciprocal reading as a way of teaching the children the skills needed to become a fluent and confident reader. We do this by following the steps below.
Predicting – What do they think this text is about?
Clarify – What new vocabulary have they experienced? What do the new words/phrases mean?
Question – Can children answer questions about the text?
Summary – In their words, what is the text about?
All children have a logon to Collins and a library for each to choose a suitable book. Please use the following link to sign in.
