Listening to them read and recording responses.
You have gathered the information above and you will need to find some suitable (authentic literature) for your
student to read aloud to you. Book ideas and book selections will be discussed at length in lectures and tutorials.
Select a quality picture book narrative that the child has not read before. Books in the children’s section of bookshops
the children’s librarian for advice. See the DE suggested booklist on our Uvws site. Disney Books, Cinderella, Littlest
Mermaid are NOT appropriate. You could ask the classroom teacher or parent/ caregiver to guide your reading
book choice, but do make sure they are suggesting quality literature (we are asking you not to choose levelled books
from commercial reading schemes) or Disney books linked to movies and merchandise. You are guided by the child’s
current takehomereader(consider howmanywordsonapage, what typesof words, dothepicturescloselymatch
the text). Once you have chosen a book, try and find at least two others for reserve. Of these two reserve books,
select one that may seem a little harder and one a little easier than the one you are going to have the child read. It
may take you several attempts with different texts before you find a suitable book for your student to read. We will
talkaboutthisveryearlyinlectures. The chosen text must be a text the child has not seen or read before .
