    How the Reading Box Blue Works

    • A 9-minute levelling test is administered before students begin to work with the box. Alternatively, teachers can use their own testing scores and judgement. Copies of the test are provided within the Teacher’s Folder. The test is also able to be photocopied from the blackline master available within the Teacher’s Manual.
    • The test is marked by the teacher and compared to the levelling table found in the Teacher’s Manual. The levelling table provides a recommended beginning card level (sky, mist etc) for each student.
    • Students choose one of the informative, persuasive or imaginative texts from their designated colour level.
    • Once the student has finished reading the card, at their own pace, they undertake a set of comprehension questions that utilise both literal and inferential strategies. The questions are also graded to match the appropriate reading level.
    • Students record their answers on a photocopied answer sheet or write the answers in the back of their exercise book.
    • Once a card is completed, children mark their own work using the corresponding answer card found at the back of the box.
    • Then, students colour the corresponding card level and number on the Progress Chart. This is done so both the teacher and the student know what work has been completed.
     

    In the Classroom

    There are numerous ways a teacher can use the Reading Box Blue in a classroom. With 150 different cards, the kit is quite able to support the whole class at one time. However, the optimum usage is seen as an independent activity within a rotational reading group lesson. The model below allows the Reading Box Blue to be used by a group working independently, freeing up the teacher to work with other groups and individuals.
