Hello everyone we would like to tell you all about what we have been learning in C.A.F.E. reading. We have discovered how to use four very important reading strategies we call the Fab Four. They are predicting, clarifying, questioning and summarising. When we read we use these strategies to help us understand the text. We talk about the text with our classmates using a Fab Four chart in Reciprocal Reading groups. Here are the characters we created to help us remember the Fab Four.
Have you been using the Fab Four when you are reading ?
Have they helped you understand different texts ?
What other strategies have you been learning about during reading groups ?
Have you been building your reading stamina by reading each night and filling in your reading log ?
Could you recommend any books you think we would enjoy reading ?
