In the Junior School this year, we have implemented CAFÉ Reading. This involves Comprehension, Accuracy, Fluency and Expanding Vocabulary when reading. It’s a fun way for the students to remember reading strategies and to sustain read for longer periods of time. The students love the reading characters and have found a real passion for reading, using their new strategies.
Reading Eggs is an on-line program that supports each child with their reading. It supports learning by offering individual lessons that allow children to progress at their own rate. The program has been developed by highly experienced educators and focuses on a core reading curriculum of phonics, spelling and sight words using strategies that promote reading success. The children enjoy using interactive animations, games, songs and rewards to motivate them and make learning to read enjoyable. Reading Express is an additional component of the program that caters for students from Prep to Grade 6 and focuses on building reading vocabulary, fluency and comprehension using books from a digital library. These programs are also accessible for families to use at home.
