The Reading Journey Parents as Partners Books as Passports Into Magical Worlds Its Meaning That Matters We must always help children to see it is the

meaning that matters. Words are just a means to an end. Where reading begins. Spoken word Discovery through play Metalinguistic awareness (knowing a sentence is made up of words) Phonemic awareness Research has shown that Phonemic awareness is the most powerful predictor of success in learning to read and spell.

(Shane, Jorm, Maclean and Matthews, 1984) Decoding Fluency Phonics (Alphabetic Principle) Phonemic Awareness Phonemic Awareness

A phoneme is a sound dog 3 phonemes d-o-g fish 3 phonemes f-i-sh shoe 2 phonemes sh-oo Phonemic awareness = the awareness of sounds in words Not a natural process Practice it. Play with it. Its fun! (rhyming, blending, segmenting, substituting, omitting)

Phonics (Alphabetic principal) Sounds vs. letter names Pure sounds (M = mmmmm, not muh) Fluency

Reading smoothly, accurately and with expression The Good News It can be taught. Screening test. Immersion and explicit activities.

HARD BOOKS HURT READERS Reading levels Independent Reading Level: The level at which a reader can read text with 95% accuracy (i.e., no more than one error per 20 words read) and with high comprehension. Independent reading level is relatively easy text for

the reader. Instructional Reading Level: The level at which a reader can read text with 90% accuracy (i.e., no more than one error per 10 words read). Instructional reading level is challenging, but not frustrating for the student to read successfully with normal classroom

instruction and support. Frustration Reading Level The level of reading that is too difficult to be read successfully by a student, even with normal classroom instruction and support. The student experiences less than 90 percent accuracy in word identification and less than 50 percent comprehension.

(Unit of Inquiry reading can be at this level. Read the information to your child and talk about it.) Reading is Decoding +

Comprehension = Reading Pleasure

Ultimate Goal!!! Comprehension Understanding and enjoying what you read. Kids who comprehend well. Link the ideas to their own experiences Have

developed necessary vocabulary (keep reading to your children!) Can summarize, predict, and clarify Instinctively answer the 5W questions (Who? What? Where? When? Why?)

Strategies People use different strategies to read. For example: Look at the picture to help you read a word. Go back and re-read to help you read a word you are unsure of. http://www.storylineonline.net/ guji-guji

/ What is Reading? Reading is constructing meaning from print READING COMPREHENSION Talk with your child about their reading... Good questions and conversations could be:

Who are the characters? Who do you like or dislike the most? Why? What was your favorite part of the story? Why? Was there a character with a problem in the story? How was the problem solved? If you could have changed a part in the story, what would you have changed? Why? READING COMPREHENSION As

students become readers, it is important to be sure they continue to focus on understanding what they are reading. The shift from Learning to Read to Reading to Learn takes place and reading comprehension becomes crucial. Consider

this The Montillation of Traxoline It is very important that you learn about traxoline. Traxoline is a new form of zionter. It is montilled in Ceristanna. The Ceristannians gristerlate large amounts of fevon an then brachter it to quasel traxoline. Traxoline may well be one of our most lukized snezlaus in the future because of our zionter lescelidge. Now think about these

questions: 1) What is traxoline? 2) Where is traxoline montilled? 3) How is traxoline quaselled? 4) Why is it important to know about traxoline? *You may be able to answer these questions But what really is your understanding about traxoline? What can you do to help your childs reading

comprehension? Provide a time and place for reading. Speak with your child about what he or she is reading. Ask open-ended questions about what nonfiction or fiction books they are reading. *What have you learned from this book? *Do you identify with any of the characters? Why or why not? *Is there a part you have read that you really havent liked? Why or why not?

*Did a character have a problem in the story? How did the character solve this problem? Are you Reading?
