6 Guided Reading Assessment/Guidance Sheets to use with your younger readers. These sheets can be printed for each child to keep track of their reading abilities/areas needed to improve. How to use this product: Each week, I use a new assessment focus (AF). They are marked as *AF1- decoding of the text. *AF2- retrieving information. *AF3- deducing and inferring information. *AF4- structure and organisation of the text. *AF5- comment on the writer’s use of language. *AF6- to identify the purpose. *AF7- to relate the story to others. Each sheet contains 4-5 ‘I can’ statements in which you can shade in to mark where each child is at in terms of reading. By using one assessment focus per week of guided reading, you can see real progression in the children’s understanding of the particular questions you’re asking. Beside each ‘I can’ statement, I have put a heart shape in which the teacher shades: Green: if the child is secure in that area. Orange: if the child is emerging in that area. Red: if the child is un-secure in that particular area.

Reading activity Words in context/vocabulary treasure hunt Year 6

Reading activity Words in context/vocabulary treasure hunt Year 6

I was inspired by a maths treasure hunt I have seen on TES by Beckie- Stevie. This is a words in context/vocabulary treasure hunt. I printed these on paper (worked fine) and stuck them around the hall. Different colour on a different day. Children can either write down what the word means in context, or a suitable synonym. The children were very engaged, and I heard great conversations as a result. The lilac cards are very challenging on purpose, as there are children in our school, who need to be really challenged! I think the activity really forced children to read around the word, replace words etc. I asked the children to work independently, however this could be a paired activity as well. I have attached a basic answer sheet you could use. Partners can be split and then they can compare their answers at the end of the activity. The activity will easily last an hour (muddle the order you stick them up in). I used the google dictionary to go through answers. It was good because at a glance the children were able to see the definition, see the word used in a sentence and they were also able to see synonyms. Happy SATs revising to all us crazy Year 6 teachers!!
