About this teaching resource
"A great reading conference only takes five minutes but its impact can last a lifetime." Gravity Goldberg and Jennifer Serravallo 'Conferring With Readers'
The Reading Conference provides a critical opportunity for your Year 5 readers to demonstrate what they are doing as they engage with their personal book collection and for you to notice and respond with on-the-spot teaching, feedback and goal setting.
Reading Conference Toolkit - Year 5 contains all the tools you need to run successful Reading Conferences with your students.
Key tools include:
- Four-step Reading Conference routine checking in on students’ current reading goal, sampling their oral reading and comprehension and setting the new reading goal.
- Individual student Reading Record sheet to notice and note the effectiveness of each student’s reading strategy use: word solving, monitoring and correcting, fluency, vocabulary, comprehension, opinion, reading goal.
- ACARA Year 5 Reading Achievements: A checklist to guide your observations and record keeping during the conference.
- Reading goal bookmark: a simple tool to enable personalised reading goals to be recorded as a prompt for application during independent reading.
- Running Record Tools: Blank Running Record sheet, sample Running Record and Running Record conventions. Running Records provide a powerful insight into a reader’s behaviours and strategy use as they are reading.
- Flip Chart: Reading Conference prompts. This 6-page flip chart supports you with possible prompts for each stage of the reading conference.
- Signs of Reading Achievement Yrs 3-6: a comprehensive checklist of later primary reading behaviours to teach and support.
