My reading goals

IALT: develop my reading comprehension skills

Recently I took an asTTle reading test. I read a number of texts and answered a range of questions to check my understanding and comprehension. The aim is to take a test at a level where I will make some errors so that I can identify what I need to work on to be a more successful reader.

I have looked at the results of my test and identified 3 goals for this term.

My reading goals are:

[1] Consistently read to understand the meaning of a text
[2] Make a conclusion or an assumption
[3] Know what different words mean

# 1 and 2 are about understanding the text, especially by thinking about the text more ‘deeply’.

# 3 is about developing my vocabulary and being able to use the information around a difficult word to make sense of it.

You can help me with [1] and [2] by asking me about the book I am reading at home;
  • about the characters, setting, plot and resolution (fiction)
  • Get me to explain why I believe the characters have acted in certain ways and how this influences the plot and outcome of the story
  • Ask me to make a conclusion about different aspects of the story and encourage me to make assumptions about characters, events, moods and what might have happened in the text if the character [s] acted, behaved, made different choices.

You can help me with [3] by;

  • encouraging me to explain in my own words what I think a word means
  • helping me to identify parts of a word that might help explain its meaning (e.g., in submarine the ‘sub’ means under so that will help with making an educated guess about the meaning of the word
  • encourage me to come up with words that have a similar meaning, or look in a thesaurus for words with similar (synonyms) and opposite meanings (antonyms).

My writting goals for term 2

Jack Simpson writing

Shrapnel Valley, Gallipoli

26 April 1915

Today my heart is broken.  My best friend passed away.  It is so

sad because he was so funny and made me laugh all the time.  His

name was James.

When soldiers get wounded me and Duffy go up the steep hill and

find them and bring them down to the beach.  Then they go on the

boat to Lemnos Island if they are badly hurt but sadly some of them

die on the way there.

The smell of blood is ground into my uniform.  There are heaps of

flies round my head.  I can hear them buzzing and it is getting

really annoying.  When I am near the hospital I can hear moaning

and groaning.

I wish I was at home with my cat Sandy, stroking her warm fur safe

in my cozy house.
