Reading stories

We always have a story time and we are enjoying looking at all sorts of books in our Independent Learning: stories, information books, annuals, Where’s Wally, magazines etc.

We have been reading some textless books together, discussing who is in the story, where they are and what is happening. The adults are then modeling using story language to tell the story e.g Once upon a time….One day…..But….Suddenly…Then….

Textless books are great for developing our understanding and later on we will use pictures as a strategy to help us read words.

We are also learning a few tricky words and are listening out for sounds in words.
