Ava participated in a very successful reading conference last week. Her reading goal was Comprehension, and she was practising the strategy of ‘Make a picture in your head.’ We used the Elizabeth Honey poem ‘Sally’s Secrets’. This video demonstrates how Ava and Ms Lockyer made pictures in their head after reading the poem, to help understand what the poem is about.
Thank you Hannah for your excellent video camera work.
In your comment, give Ava some feedback about her reading progress, or let us know how you have used the strategy.
With Hannah’s help Lucas presents two helpful segments on our Daily Five Literacy routine. First, Lucas gives us some tips for successful ‘Read To Self’. Then we see Lucas in a reading conference with the teacher, discussing his goal of accuracy and strategy of ‘look closely at the words and letters.’
Thank you Lucas and Hannah.

Amy and Tara have used the iPad app ‘Cool Facts For Kids’. They have taken screen shots of their favourite facts, then recorded their reading with the app SonicPics.
Let them know what you think of their reading. Do you think an app like this improves your reading? How?
