For reading over the past five weeks I have been focussing on:
I can monitor my reading for accuracy and sense, demonstrating that I have the confidence to adjust my reading (e.g., by varying the speed of reading, by rereading, and by attending to the most important information) when I encounter difficulties.
I can make connections between my prior knowledge and the concrete examples in a text in order to understand abstract ideas in the text.
During this time, I have been reading with the teacher a
nd also using an online tool called Read Theory to help practise these skills.
My two favourite texts I read were:
- …. Earthquakes because it was base in Christchurch and it was insetting.
- …. Getting to work because it was insetting how people get to work all different ways .
