The Springboard into Comprehension series is based on an explicit teaching framework.

ENGLISH

TEACHING–LEARNING PATHWAY STEP 1 EXPLICIT INSTRUCTION In this phase the teacher explains to students why the specific skill or strategy helps with comprehension and when to apply the strategy. The skill definition is included in the Teacher Notes at the back of each Student Book and on the IWB and Assessment Disc.

STEP 2 MODELLING THE COMPREHENSION SKILL LITERACY PROGRAMS

The eBooks, Comprehension Skills Big Books and the IWB and Assessment Discs are used to model and demonstrate how to apply specific comprehension skills and strategies. Supporting Graphic Organiser Comprehension Activity Worksheets help students organise their information. Interactive Installa

STEP 3 GUIDED PRACTICE WITH THE SKILL Students are assisted in practising the strategy until they can apply it independently in the guided-practice phase. The Comprehension Skills Practice Activity Sheets in the Teacher Notes offer students additional practice before they move on to the print or digital Student Books.

STEP 5 ASSESSING THE SKILL

Students read the print or digital Student Books with the teacher in the applying phase, allowing them to apply and practise the comprehension skill.

In the assessing phase, students reflect on what they have learnt and complete assessment tasks on the IWB and Assessment disc to monitor their level of understanding.

The Guide Notes at the back of each Student Book provide opportunities to develop and consolidate knowledge of specific comprehension skills.

Assessment resources for Years 3–6 allow for continuous assessment and instruction through analysis of key comprehension skills. See page 50.

Set and props This episode was great from the beginning. The set looked gross, with green and red slime dripping down the black walls. One of the cooks was dressed as a vampire, and the other one was dressed as a mummy. They held up a menu that was covered in cobwebs. In fact, there were so many cobwebs I could hardly see what was written on it! Luckily, they read it aloud as well.

Fact and Opinion

And then, there they were – Cosmo, Sofia and Omar! Three of my school friends laughed as we sped by. In fact, Cosmo, one of my best friends, was laughing so much he tripped over a tree root. As he fell to the ground, I heard a sickening snapping sound. But it was not the tree root; it was Cosmo’s leg. Grandpa slammed on the brakes and jumped out to help. ‘Out of the way, I’m not here to play!’ shouted Grandpa to my friends. Suddenly, Grandpa shocked everyone by giving orders and organising everyone. ‘I need some strong sticks and some belts to support his leg!’ he shouted. Within a few minutes, Grandpa had Cosmo’s leg bound in a splint made of sticks and belts. ‘How are we going to get him to the hospital?’ Sofia asked. ‘It’s my intention to use my invention,’ Grandpa announced, as he helped Cosmo into the machine. ‘Help me load and we’ll get the show on the road.’ Then, he changed back to his other self and gave orders to the rest of us: ‘You’ll have to walk back. When you get home, call Cosmo’s parents and tell them to meet me at the hospital.’ I watched with pride as my Grandpa and Cosmo headed off with the washing machine agitator spinning and the cow-mooing horn honking.

Writer’s Purpose

Fair Play?

FOCUS The writer uses emotive language to persuade the reader that Martin’s first soccer training session is not as much fun as he hoped it would be. The writer influences the reader’s attitude to the captain, who thinks Martin isn’t good enough to play soccer. The writer hints that the coach is doubtful about Martin, too. The writer wants the reader to feel Martin’s disappointment because the coach doesn’t really want Martin to play.

Imaginative (Narrative)

Written by Peter Millett

by telling a narrative. At half-time, Martin was still on the bench. ‘Any chance I’ll be on for the next half?’ Martin asked the coach. ‘Listen, Martin, I’ve checked with the team. Because this game is so close, it’s probably not the best time for you to go on,’ replied the coach. Martin’s

head dropped.

Martin’s first time at soccer training wasn’t going as well as he’d hoped. Some of the players on his team were excluding him from their one-on-one dribbling challenges and passing drills. ‘Are you sure you’ve chosen the right sport?’ the team’s captain, Philip, muttered. ‘Aren’t you more of a volleyball player?’ ‘I was at my last school,’ Martin said. ‘Now I want to be a soccer player.’

The orientation introduces the main character and sets the scene.

In the complication, the main character encounters a problem.

‘You should have stuck to volleyball,’ Philip muttered coldly. The following Saturday, Martin joined the team for their first interschool match of the season. The coach told Martin to wait on the substitutes’ bench. ‘Can I come on during the first half?’ Martin asked. The coach looked at Philip and the rest of the players. ‘Maybe …’ he said slowly.

Emotive language shows the captain’s change of attitude.

Fair Play?

The resolution explains how the problem was resolved.

Fifteen minutes later, the game stopped abruptly when Philip accidentally collided with his own goalkeeper. The goalkeeper was badly winded, and needed assistance to leave the field. ‘Who’s going to switch into goal?’ the coach cried. After seeing what had happened to the goalkeeper, none of the players wanted to volunteer. ‘I will!’ Martin cried. ‘I’m a pro with my hands.’ Martin slipped on the goalkeeper’s jersey and positioned himself in front of the goal. For the rest of the game, Martin stopped the opposition strikers from getting anywhere near scoring a goal. ‘Awesome save!’ Philip cried, watching Martin make a brave, diving block. The game ended in a nil–all draw. Afterwards, Philip approached Martin. ‘I’m sorry about what I said to you at training. No sore feelings, eh?’ he said. ‘Just a few sore points … like my back and my hip after making that crazy save!’ replied Martin, smiling. ‘Excellent,’ answered Philip, looking noticeably relieved. ‘Welcome to the team!’

HIGH INTEREST–LOW READING ABILITY

MIDDLE–UPPER PRIMARY

Short texts designed to engage struggling readers. No longer will struggling readers have to read material junior to their maturity and interests. Finely levelled to suit struggling readers, these high-interest fiction texts feature simple sentence structures and controlled vocabulary. The edgy, sophisticated designs and relevant content in each nonfiction and fiction series appeals to middle–upper primary students, thereby fostering reading confidence and, in turn, leading to increased self-esteem.

FICTION PACKS 1 & 2

NONFICTION PACK 1

Science fiction, sports, paranormal, realistic life, historical fiction and fantasy are just a few of the many genres covered in these fiction titles. A ‘meet the characters’ feature introduces each story’s main character. All characters are age-appropriate and come from diverse cultures and backgrounds. Illustrations on every spread support visual literacy and draw struggling readers into the text.

This series features high-interest topics in every content area. Visually appealing full-colour photographs and illustrations, fun facts and short chapters keep emerging readers focused. These books include pre-reading comprehension questions and a 20-word glossary for comprehension support.

LEVELLING METHODOLOGY: LEXILE LEVELLED Lexile® Measures is a proprietary levelling system. The Lexile measure is shown as a number with an ‘L’ after it — 280L is 280 Lexile. Higher Lexile measures represent a higher level of reading ability. A Lexile reader measure can range from below 200L for emergent readers to above 1600L for advanced readers. The titles in the Red Rhino Readers series range between 10L and 210L. This range aligns with Foundation, Year 1 and Year 2 reading levels; and it also aligns with Reading Recovery levelling criteria, approximately levels 8–14. 70 | www.macmillaneducation.com.au/primary

Includes full site licence.

90 | www.macmillaneducation.com.au/primary

Spelling.Focus: Initial consonant m; initial vowel i;.. high frequency/sight words: it,.is,.a Point out the monster at the top of the page and the letter m on its back. Paint pictures of monsters and write m to display with the pictures. Make a map to the monster’s hideaway. Look at the letter frames for the tall, long and short letters (page13). Make sure students understand the differences. Do some with the whole class on the board first. Write map and mat on the board. Ask students, ‘What’s the difference?’ Make the letter m in the air with students. Read pirate stories. Practise talking in pirate voices. Make treasure maps for pirates. List all the things that could be in the treasure chest.

Student Book Foundation

Unit.5

Students capable of doing so should be encouraged to copy the word treasure and to sound out the word and look at the spelling pattern. They can also have a go at the word pirate. Discuss the initial i in the words it and is. Point out that in the word is the s makes the z sound. Brainstorm a list of words that start with i. Revisit all word charts and lists around the room. Ask students if they remember how to spell any of the words written on the lists. Place plastic letter shapes c, g, s, t, p, i, a inside a bag such as a pillowcase. Have students take turns to place their hand inside the bag and choose a letter, name it and bring it out of the bag to see if they are right.

Show students how to draw a treasure map, then let them create their own maps and pictures of treasure. Have them copy the word map onto their paper.

Spelling.Focus: Final consonants g, m; medial vowel short i;.. high frequency/sight words: am,.at

Student Book Foundation

Unit.6

Ensure that students understand that they need to write the final sound for each picture: drum, ham, dog, bag, arm, jug, pig, leg, jam.

Ask students if they can hear g at the beginning of the word or the end of the word in these words: log, goat, pig, dog, got, green, jug, grab, great, dig.

Explain how to colour the circles and squares for whether the sound is at the beginning or end of the word. Practise on the board so that students get the idea.

Ask students if they can hear m at the beginning of the word or the end of the word in these words: pram, monkey, money, make, Tom, meat, team.

Make m and g sounds with students. Point out the way the lips create the m. Point out the way the hard g sound (as in leg) is made in the throat. Write the list words sit, pig, tip, tag, am and at on the board. Ask students to spell the words, name the letters and point out any features of the words that they can think of. For example, students might suggest that sit, pig and tip have i in the middle; they might use analogy to say that sit looks like sat except for the i; they might say that pig ends like dog and so on.

Write CVC words on the board and ask students to fill in the blanks, for example p_g, d_g, m_t, m_p, s_t, s_p, s_m, t_m, l_g. Ask students to think of some for themselves. A challenge for capable students could be to make a list of all the three-letter words they can write.

Spelling.Focus: Initial consonants d, l; medial vowel short a,.i; high frequency/sight words: do,.did Discuss rhyme with students. Write the following two columns of words and show students how they rhyme, and how to join them with lines when they do rhyme. pig

sip

tip

dig

big

lip

hip

rig

Make the l sound with students, focusing on where in the mouth and throat the sound is made. Brainstorm all the words students can think of that contain the l sound, for example like, love, look, lemon, little, Lily, Lucy.

Student Book Foundation

Unit.7

Rehearse the tongue twisters as action rhymes. Exaggerate the l sounds. Make an action for each syllable in the tongue twisters. For example, Love-ly (with two claps) Lu-cy (two finger clicks) likes lit-tle (slap knees with hands three times) li-zards (two head nods, one to each side). Make up an action rhyme tongue twister for each student in the class. Divide the class into small groups and have each group learn the action rhymes of its members. Perform for another class. Write dig on the board and ask students to change one letter at a time to make new words, for example dig, dog, dot, pot, pat, sat, sit etc.

If a student in the class has a name beginning with l, make up a tongue twister. Ensure that it is positive and will benefit the child’s self-esteem, and ensure that you do not stereotype by gender. For example, Lovely Lucy likes little lizards. Lovely Lenny likes to laugh.

Spelling.Focus: initial consonant n, initial vowels o, a; medial vowel i; plural suffix s; high frequency/sight words: no,.as,.on Make sure students understand that the shapes of the boxes on page 19 show the shapes of the letters that go inside. Practise some on the board for the following words: nip, nap, am, a, pat, sat, dog, log. Students should now recognise the letters s, t, a, c, g, m, i, l, d. For revision, say with students the letter names and the sounds they have learnt for the letters so far. Write nip and nap on the board. Ask students what the difference is. Rub out the middle vowels and show students that the words look the same. Ask students what the words mean. Have students make the n sound and notice the vibration in their mouths and inside their heads.

Student Book Foundation

Unit.8

Use vegetable dye to dye dried pasta tubes red, blue, green or other colours of your choice. This will need to be done the day before you want to use it. (Don’t leave the pasta too long in the dye or it will get soggy.) Make small coloured cardboard shapes such as squares, circles, diamonds. Write letters on the shapes for the names of students in the class. Students can thread coloured pasta and their name letters to make hanging decorations or jewellery. Some students might wish to make something for a member of their family.

Point out that s can be added to naming words to mean more than one. For example, 1 dog, 2 dogs.

Have students write n in the air and on paper and then practise writing the other letters they have learnt. Brainstorm n words, for example nest, net, neck, necklace, nasty, nice, nana.

STEM Investigations  |

STUDENT CARDS

The Student Cards present authentic learning experiences. Each card presents a realworld situation and problem, and students work towards a solution to this problem through a guided inquiry approach. Students can work individually, in pairs or in groups. Every investigation requires the application of science, technologies and maths knowledge and skills, following a design thinking process. Each investigation also focuses on literacy, particularly science literacy and vocabulary. The 20 STEM investigations are organised into five themes: • Built World Topics such as simple machines, design of buildings, town planning and transportation • Managed World Topics such as human-made systems, communities and manufacturing  • Natural World Topics such as animal and plant life cycles, animal adaptations, geological changes, extreme events and chemical science  • Sustainable World Topics such as sharing finite resources, interactions between the natural world and human societies, and global sustainability issues

THE DESIGN THINKING PROCESS For each STEM investigation, students must first explore the key scientific concepts relating to the investigation before completing the challenge using a design thinking process. There are many variations of the design thinking process; the version used in STEM Investigations was made famous by Stanford University Design School. This process guides students through the different stages necessary to produce an end product or process relating to the original challenge. The five stages are: • EMPATHISE with and learn other points of view
