Sharing my TAI Term 3 2018

I set up my Inquiry as a mini expo, to showcase the impact I have had on my target learners. I was able to show case the strategies and how to get the buy-in from my learners.

My Inquiry as an Image

I think of my Inquiry as an image of a bridge. In 2017 I had a huge impact on how to build learners Word Attack Skills. This year my impact is to increase comprehension levels, by Empowering learners to do this.

My next steps are to build the vocabulary learners have and use through not only comprehension but oral language.

This is how I picture my inquiry as an image now...

A closer view of my expo display

Teaching As Inquiry Term 3

We shared our Inquiries last week. I set mine up as an expo, and talked to some of the practice I have changed, supported with evidence and supporting theory. I felt proud of the changes I have made and the shift gained.

Reading Together Workshop 2018

A huge success, parents engaged and eager to learn. Loved their involvement. The demonstrations of what to do and what not to do was powerful and helped parents with strategies to support their child with reading. It was helpful to start with parents experiences of what reading with their child at home was like and how they felt about helping their child.  This workshop was open to all Junior hubs, wonderful collaboration from the teams of teachers who were there to support.  This was the biggest turn out we have ever had at Stonefields School.

Some comments from the Reading Together Workshop

Some great takeaways from this Reading Together workshop, parents want these workshops to continue as they are helpful for parents to support their children with reading, therefore this supports teachers and raises student achievement.  Some great ideas here too with providing handouts with questions parents could ask about the book and how to support children from Reading level to level.
Also, providing workshops in Writing and Maths.

Empowering Learners to drive their level of understanding in their reading

Taking agency

Making Meaning of how the three level guide fits into the Learning Process

Having a go at the three level guide questions to infer into the book.

Excited to give this a try with my learners. Engage them in collaboration, oral language and empowering them to make meaning of the text.
