IN THE FIRST YEAR OF SCHOOL

Students begin reading and writing from their first day of school. Effective teachers build on the literacy knowledge, skills and attitudes that students bring to their school learning. Much of the day revolves around literacy. In addition to shared and guided reading and writing, teachers support their students ' literacy learning with a rich mix of approaches, including language experience and frequent reading to students. They provide many opportunities for students to read and write independently and to engage in purposeful literacy tasks.

NB: For support in establishing what to teach (content) and the strategies to help students learn (pedagogy) it may be useful to consult http://englishonline.tki.org.nz/

As soon as students start school, they begin
reading texts at Magenta level.
At this level they need to:


*develop early concepts about print, such as ideas that the print carries the message and that print is read from left to right.


*expect a text to make sense and sound right.


*gain control over one-to-one matching.


*start building a reading vocabulary of high-frequency words.

In the first year of school, students create many texts for a range of purposes across the curriculum. They plan for writing, using talk and pictures, and they attempt to record their ideas and experiences in print.

At first, there is a high level of scaffolding as teachers help students to:

*say/hear, and record the predominant sounds in the words they want to write
Word Families

Children select a letter and sort the related word families. This could be completed independently or could be used as a demonstration tool using a dataprojector

*write from left to right and leave spaces between words


*form letters accurately

This alphabet page demonstrates the letter and the sound along with a visual cue. Could be used alongside letter of the week programme. Print outs could be used for handwriting.




Gradually, the support alters as teachers help students too build and strength their processing systems to create longer more complex texts. Students learn to:



*experiment with capturing words from their oral vocabulary


*hear and say the initial and final sounds and some dominant medial sounds in the words they want to write


*recognise and identify common sounds in different words


*use their developing visual memory to consistently encode(spell) some known words correctly


*make close attempts to encode words by noticing visual similarities to known words


*attempt to use capital letters and full stops as they develop their understanding of sentences


*reread what they write as they are writing and read (retell) their writing for themselves and others
