When I am reading a Red book I am learning to…
Locate and recall the title
Use my phonic knowledge to decode even more words
Read some CVC words on sight such as pig, cat, hat
Read some tricky common exception words such as the, and, I
Check what I have read makes sense
Read a book more than once to improve my confidence
Retell my favourite stories
Begin to answer some simple questions
You can help me by….
Encouraging me to sound out each word carefully
There might be some sounds I haven’t come across yet because I am still learning my Phase 3 sounds. If there is one I don’t know you can help me by telling me what sound it makes so I can try to read the word.
Asking me questions such as… What has happened in the story? - What was the character doing? - How do you think the character feels?
