A little reminder about how important it is to read every day
and now is the perfect time to read your favourite books you have at home!
Don't forget if you are on AR, you can access the AR Reading scheme at home too.
Check your book is on the scheme and then complete a quiz. Just follow the links below.
You can also look for books to read on myON if you are running out of books at home.
When using myON, you need to make sure you are using the UK version, or you won't be able to quiz on the books you read!
Go onto myON and click 'start reading'
Click on 'language' and then select 'English (UK)
This will ensure that all the books they then choose to read they will be able to quiz on.
Please read through the reading comprehension with your child and talk about it as you go. If they were doing this task at school then they would be doing it as part of a guided group. This text is meant to be read and shared with an adult, so that you can discuss what you have read and talk about any words you find tricky or don't understand. It is not meant for you to read and complete on your own.
Each week you will have a reading comprehension to complete.
Read the text carefully and then write the answers to each of the questions, in sentences, on a piece of paper or in a notebook.
The first 5 questions are about RETRIEVAL
The next 5 questions follow VIPERS, like we use in class.
V= VOCABULARY ( finding the meaning of words in context, other words that mean the same thing)
I= INFERENCE ( 'reading between the lines' and using clues from the text, without the author actually telling us.)
P= PREDICTION ( suggesting what might/could happen)
E= EXPLAIN ( giving details about what has happened)
R= RETRIEVE ( finding the answers from the text)
S= SUMMARISE ( a brief account of the main points of the story / a particular part of the story)
( The answers are there for you at the end, and you and your grown up can check through when you have finished.)
