The 30 minute daily Reading Recovery Lesson includes both reading and writing
- Re-reading familiar books provides the child with reading practice, to read fluently at a good pace with phrasing and expression and an acquaintance with a wide range of texts and language structures.
- The Reading Recovery teacher takes a running record of the child re-reading yesterday’s new book without teacher input.
- At the board the child will do a letter sorting activity to learn to discriminate all the letters fast and engage in word breaking activities.
- The child composes a message to be written, scaffolded by the teacher, using a range of ways of solving words for writing.
- Reconstructing the child’s cut up story provides the child an opportunity to practise searching, monitoring and checking.
- A new book is carefully selected by the teacher and introduced to the child and then the child attempts a first read.
