Reading with RIC Starters with a WW2 theme.

We use the 'Reading with R.I.C.' whole class approach to reading, introduced by @MrsPTeach, and during a recent history unit on WW2 I used these starters at the beginning of each session to aid discussion. I hope you find them useful. Please leave feedback and I will endeavour to upload more resources soon. Alison

Reading with R.I.C. Journal Inserts for year 3

As a school we have adopted the whole class teaching of reading advocated by Jo Payne (mrspteach.com) and I have designed a record sheet for each year group which can be stuck on the inside cover of the children's reading journals. We use these sheets to monitor individual progress and we record the child's reading age termly using the PiRA reading assessments. The baseline boxes on the left of the sheet are colour coded (red/yellow/green) at the beginning of the academic year to indicate what skills the child is more/less confident with.

Reading with RIC visual literacy (whole class Guided Reading starter activity) - Toy Story

Reading with RIC is a visual literacy resource, used as a whole class Guided Reading starter activity. The stimulus is always something different; it can be a song, poem, video, photo, advert. In this case it's a clip from Toy Story Sometimes they require children to read, sometimes they don't. They always contain a RETRIEVE, INTERPRET and CHOICE question. There is one powerpoint here, suitable for Year 5 or 6. To access the link to the clip on which the questions are based you will need to start the powerpoint presentation and then click on the blue title on the first slide as the clips are hyperlinked in. Please note you will need internet access to watch the clips and as some are on You Tube to check that this is not blocked in your school. I've tried to make the clips on a variety of themes to engage all in the class. We spend a few minutes going over the answers as a class, with pupils getting the chance to add to their answers with other people's ideas, using KAGAN structures. This means children get the chance to access high-quality answers and write them down. If you're interested check out my other RIC presentations.

Reading Comprehension WW2 Evacuees With Skill Specific Question SheetsQuick View

Reading Comprehension WW2 Evacuees With Skill Specific Question Sheets

Across school, we have adopted a whole class reading model (Reading with RIC) which replaces the previous carousel method. This pack allows accurate and rigorous teacher assessment as it addresses a different reading skill each day. Pairing Non-Fiction with Fiction for better understanding. I was using the narrative 'The Lion and the Unicorn' by Shirley Hughes in my English sessions and this non-fiction sheet provided the essential background knowledge to my WW2 topic, allowing discussion of the key vocabulary required. I have also posted similar sheets on 'WW2 Overview' and 'The Blitz' I would love to receive your feedback. Alison
