Based on what level they are on, then move them into a group of children that are at the same level. Then, as a teacher, build upon their knowledge at their level and pace. The guide the students into learning new words on their own, this could be done by reading and practicing writing. Alternative #3: Embedded Phonics Instruction, on pages 235 and 236, is a literature-based instruction. Students learn new words based on

Daily exposure to stories helps children to learn the structure and style of a story, particularly learning stories off by heart and being read to by a teacher. In turn this will improve their own story and poem writing as the structure and style will become second nature to them. What has been written already on this research topic? The National Strategy ‘Talk for Writing’ is based on this but I don’t feel that it fully engages/enthuses teachers in the importance of daily storytelling or whether it has had a positive impact on Literacy learning in the classroom. 4.
Frank Smith, (2004), argues that teachers should model collaboration for their students by participating with them in writing skills for brainstorming, composing, and editing. This allows teachers to work with students to complete new writing skill tasks rather than one they already have agreed
The student can ask question such as: What the topic is about? Does the topic and sub topic support the book? The next step is reading. This is where the students read for comprehension and try to understand the text and main idea of the book or story. This stage is important because it determines if he or she can figure out the main plot of the story.
It provides foundational information about stages of reading acquisition, factors that impact reading success or failure, and the nature of reading difficulties. This information serves as a context for learning about the selection, administration, and interpretation of formal and informal classroom assessments for the purposes of screening, diagnosing difficulties, monitoring progress, and evaluating instruction. In addition, a final diagnostic and instructional recommendations report will be developed based on student test data provided. (3 credits) Prerequisite: RDG
Children are seen as emergent readers and writers, who bring to school with them a whole variety of skills and knowledge with which the teacher can work with. As language and literacy (or English) teachers, it is up to us to analyse and asses the needs of children according to; theories of development (Piaget, Vygotsky, Wilkinson, Luke & Freebody), developmental practices (socio-cultural), prior knowledge (grammar, punctuation, orthography, text-types), establish their skills base (reading [invented spelling], writing) to help determine what phase children are in according to their stage of development, what there ZPD’s are, and thus establish a teaching strategy to help scaffold their learning, giving them the skills to enter society as literate adults, as summed up by Gardner (Gardner & Brockman, 2000): ‘I want people at the end of their education to understand the world in ways that they couldn’t have understood it before their
Teaching students to read and learning to read is an intricate task. Most children enter school with a considerable amount of competence in their spoken language but have little knowledge of how to read and write. There are many diverse approaches used to teach language and literacy skills and a lot of debate has arisen on how to best teach beginning reading. Some educators advocate for a phonics based approach, while others support a whole language approach. This paper will briefly look at these two different approaches, discuss some options on how best to deliver an effective reading program, and review a commercial reading program, in this case, Jolly Phonics, and its usefulness in promoting phonological awareness.
A good example of teaching specific structure of narrative text for students is letting them use a story map. Story maps can show students the components of a story such as characters, place, time, problem and solution. Students can comprehend a story better by knowing these important components. “Teaching students the
