The resources below use the first chapter of a novel as a stimulus. The reason for this is that regardless of what is in your book room; you are able to find the first chapter on Google Preview or Amazon, if not from your local library. In each document there is a link to the preview online.
Each resource contains the following:
- Links to the literacy progressions
- Library of sentence models
- Pre-reading task – Story Impressions
- 3 Level Reading Guide – Literal to inferential
- Comprehension Questions
- Sentence model activities
- Post reading
- Short language quiz
You can preview what the resources look like in this sample below.
