Term 4 - Published Writing

Publish our writing

·      Re-read our draft so that it makes sense
·      Go back and fix up mistakes
·      Copy our draft work correctly
·      Use our neatest hand writing


These are some of the things I think a good reader does:
  • Reads fluently
  • If they don't know a word they break it into smaller parts to work it out
  • They re-read to help make sense
  • They stop and pause when they get to a full stop
