From Reading to Writing

From Reading to Writing

Reading and writing are complementary processes. Reading instruction is dual-purpose. It serves both to improve the students’ ability to understand texts that they read and to develop their own writing abilities. When the students see how they draw meaning from the texts, they can see how to instill meaning in their own work. They can employ this knowledge to their advantage in their writing. They can edit their writing to assure patterns of content and language that will lead their readers to the desired inference.

Phonics Teaching

Phonics Teaching

The purpose of the school-based phonics curriculum is to teach children sound-spelling relationships and how to use those relationships to read words. Explicit and systematic phonics instruction leads to better reading. The school-based phonics instruction leads to the development of word recognition, which leads to reading fluency and comprehension.

Sight-Word Teaching

Sight-word Teaching

Throughout the first term, the students are taught new words each couple of weeks. These ‘sight words’ are some of the most common words in the English language that students need to learn so that they can read. In the second term the words are reviewed weekly.

Electronic Learning

Electronic Learning

Electronic learning allows teachers and students to have close interaction and effectively helps teachers take care of learning differences in the new teaching model. Besides, the electronic lesson plans help improve the quality of teaching.

Guided Reading

Guided Reading

Guided Reading is to introduce the students to a wider variety of books with different text type features, and create an environment in which they are comfortable to read. It is also to cater for learner diversity by putting students into small groups, based on their reading level. Also, students will practise comprehension and decoding skills they have been taught in through the Shared Reading lessons.
