4 A Vital Skill Unlocking Learning Reading is how we discover new things and how we develop a positive self-image. The ability to read is a vital skill in being able to function in today's society. Reading is important because it helps to expand the mind and develops the imagination. A person who knows how to read can educate themselves in any area of life they see fit. People who don t read or are poor readers often have low opinions of themselves and their capabilities. They mostly feel isolated and behaviour problems surface. As we live in an age abundant with information, reading is the only way to become informed.

13 I can read really well! In general, the management of behaviour in classrooms is not a function of the techniques of directly controlling behaviour that is, desist style. Rather, it is a function of the techniques of creating an effective classroom ecology containing such variables as having a non-satiating learning programme, initiating and maintaining movement flow and aiming teacher actions at appropriate targets.

14 Wings Clarifying (Decoding) Can you say the word? If not... sound it out chunk it reread ask your partner Do you know what the word means? If not... use context Reread read on use your background knowledge make a mind movie

15 Wings Reading Skills Clarification clarifying parts of the text they don t understand (words, sentences or concepts) Summarisation summarising sections of the text so that they remember the main points and check their comprehension Questioning asking and discussing questions that occur to them as they read Prediction making predictions about what will happen as new evidence is revealed in the story

16 The Power of Three Unless we are reading at 90 words a minute we are unable to comprehend what we are reading. To improve fluency: 1 st time read to decode (Accuracy) 2 nd time read for fluency (Smoothness) 3 rd time read for expression and intonation (Expressiveness) Then you can show you are understanding the meaning of what you are reading.

17 Three Reads - Fluency Readers who have not developed fluency read slowly, word by word. Their reading is choppy, plodding and laborious. As we listen to transition readers we know that their lack of fluency impedes their ability to understand the text. It makes it difficult to take any interest in the text because too much energy is focused on their struggle and the mistakes they are making. A recent large-scale study found that 50% of Year 4 children had low fluency levels. The study also found a close relationship between fluency and reading comprehension. Children who scored low on measures of fluency also scored low on measures of comprehension. This suggests that fluency is a neglected reading skill and affects reading comprehension.

21 What type of question? John had got up early to learn his spellings. He was very tired and decided to take a break. When he opened his eyes again the first thing he noticed was the clock on the chair. It was an hour later and nearly time for school. He picked up his two books and put them in a bag. He started pedalling to school as fast as he could. However, John ran over some broken bottles and had to walk the rest of the way. By the time he had crossed the bridge and arrived at class, the test was over. How did John travel to school? What was John trying to learn? How do you think John felt about missing the test? What happened to John when he decided to take a break?

22 Your Turn Work Together Billy was crying. His whole day was spoilt. All his hard work had been broken by the wave. His mother came to stop him crying. But she accidentally trod on the only tower that was left. Billy cried even more. Never mind, said his mother, You can always build another one tomorrow. Billy stopped crying and went home for his tea.
