• No one is a complete beginner. All learners will have some familiar words from print in the environment such as signs.
  • At this level learner created texts are the focus of reading through the language experience approach- writing down of a     couple of sentences from students own life and experience. Write down exactly what your learner says then get them to     read it back.
  • Select authentic texts based on your students immediate literacy needs and interests.
  • When accessing reading texts ask your learner to predict what the text might be about from picture clues and context.
  • For phonics focus on words and identify initial sounds taken from their own writing.
