Teacher Resources

Records of Reading Behaviours are taken regularly in the early years of learning to read. These records are used to monitor progress and to determine each student’s learning level. A learning level is one where the student meets new learning challenges without being frustrated by a text that is too difficult. Teachers can select appropriate texts that are matched to each student’s learning level.

The AlphakidsPlus ‘Records of Reading Behaviours’ are available for Levels 1-11 and provide:

  • Two text transcripts at each reading level – a narrative and an informative text
  • Literal, interpretive and critical comprehension questions that relate to the student’s understanding of the text
  • Guidelines for taking a record of each student’s oral reading
  • Analysis of a student’s retelling of a text.

  • practising the use of high-frequency words within various sentence patterns
  • phonemic awareness and the relationship between sounds and letters
  • building up word banks of key vocabulary
  • organising information, which requires critical and creative thinking
