In addition to guided reading and comprehension activities, we have introduced Reading Plus from Year 2 to Year 6. This online reading resources is designed to improve reading speed and comprehension understanding of the different genres whilst giving our children the ability to investigate and question books they want to read. Our children have the opportunity during the school day and at home to access their personalised learning zone to access the different resources with the following areas:
Personalised Guided Practice
In the SeeReader® activity, children read text in the Reading Plus Guided Window™ to improve reading efficiency. The Guided Window moves according to the rate at which the child is currently reading and adapts based on the student’s performance with comprehension questions.
As children increase their ability to successfully comprehend texts with greater reading efficiency, Reading Plus responds by transitioning them to more traditional reading formats. Text scaffolds are gradually removed in accord of each student’s reading rate. This helps students sustain attention and assists them with transferring the increased efficiency they attain to authentic reading activities.
Student Agency: Choice, Control, and Accountability
Children explore and select age-appropriate texts that excite and motivate them throughout their Reading Plus journey.
Intensive Visual Perception Games
During Scan, students will complete activities that help their eyes move quickly left to right.
Flash is an activity in iBalance that develops the ability to quickly recognize several letters in parallel within a fraction of a second.
