  • Need some help with Reading?

    All teachers at the school use the Munro literacy strategies.  These strategies are aimed at helping your student to read and understand the texts used in the classroom.  The strategies and a brief description are provided below.

    Getting knowledge ready

    This helps students by getting them to recall what they already know on a topic.

    Vocabulary

    This can be done before and during reading.  This helps students to find words they don’t know and try to work out their meaning.

    Reading aloud

    This strategy helps students by getting them to sound out words and make images in their mind.

    Say questions the text answers

    This strategy gets students to say the questions answered in texts.  This helps students to understand the text and break it up into parts.  This can also help with summarising a text.

    Paraphrase

    This helps students to make a text more meaningful for them by putting it into words they are more familiar with and rewriting the sentences.

    Summarise

    This helps students by getting them to find what the main ideas were from the text.

    Review

    This strategy gets students to say what they now know after reading the text.
