Have you got a fluent, gifted reader in a class full of students learning to read? What do you do with them while you're teaching important decoding strategies such as looking at the pictures for visual clues or Eagle Eye? These thoughtful, differentiated, flexible and extended learning activities allow your gifted readers to explore visual clues, extending their comprehension skills while other students develop their decoding skills.
While these activities were created for gifted/fluent readers to use while other students are working on the 'look at the picture' decoding strategy, the flexibility of the activities allows them to be used at other times with a range of students.
These activities are designed for Grade 1 or 2 students who are gifted/fluent readers. They may also be suitable for some students in Kindergarten/Prep or Grade 3: please check the previews to determine if it is suitable for you.
