  • Book Walk: Then we conduct a book walk where students have the opportunity to discuss what they see on each page of the book. This helps activate prior knowledge and build anticipation for the story.
  • Reading: We allow students to read the book independently or in small groups depending on their reading ability, providing support and guidance as needed. We also encourage students to use reading strategies and skills they have learned.
  • Comprehension Discussion: After reading, we actively engage students in a discussion about the book. By Asking questions we are able to access understanding, We also encourage students to make connections to their own experiences and discuss the main ideas and key details of the story.
  • Assessment: We are able to understand their progress through informal observations, and discussions. By Using this information we decide on further customised instruction and determine the next steps for each student.
