Read read, read!

My inquiry focus for 2016 is:

Learning how to read requires several complex accomplishments. Children face many challenges as they learn how sounds are connected to print, as they develop fluency, and as they learn to construct meaning from print.

 We know from research that reading is a language-based activity. Reading does not develop naturally, and for many children, specific decoding, word recognition, and reading comprehension skills must be taught directly and systematically. We have also learned that children benefit significantly from being read to.

For my inquiry I will be focusing on a group of children reading PM books at Red, Level 3. These children are also my priority learners. I will be looking at the development of reading comprehension skills, the development of phoneme awareness, phonics, word recognition, reading fluency and getting them to read more frequently.
