Remote Learning- Tuesday 15th September

Reading (20 minutes)

*Your child must use Wushka or ActiveLearn to access new books. Students will not receive new readers from school.

Success Criteria –

  • I can read with a clear voice.
  • I can read in phrases (words together).

Wushka Task – Sign in and complete your assigned task.

  • Books have been allocated to your child
  • Read your allocated books more than once before you answer the questions. P/1 students may need a parent to read the questions. Please do not give your child the answer or influence their answers in any way. This will only tell us what you know – not what your child knows.
  • Read one allocated book from the Reading Group box today. Complete the matching comprehension/quiz questions.

*Please note, your teacher will be checking to see how you went with this task.

Watch Mrs Kenna’s video below to understand how to read a Wushka text. Mrs Kenna ‘thinks aloud’ to show how to read the text carefully, and attend to the pictures and ideas in the story. She also shows how to answer the quiz questions after reading.
