GREEN LEVEL

 

Green level books have varied and longer sentences with little or no repetition of phrases. Stories have a wider variety of characters and events which develop over a number of pages. Sentences may include lists of things or actions, and adverbs are used to begin sentences. They may have larger number of words on page. In non-fiction texts less familiar or specialised vocabulary used and illustrations may provide only moderate support for the text.

 

How to support your child reading Green level books

 

Your child is now developing into a more confident reader. Encourage them to select from books at the library or bookshop as well as those from school. As they read, you can help by encouraging them to:

  • Sound out quickly – and silently – inside their heads, if they need to sound out words.
  • Look at the punctuation marks. You may want to model how to read a page of writing, paying attention to punctuation, such as full-stops and question marks.
  • Tell you about what the characters in the story are doing and why they are acting in that way.
  • Show you how they can find particular things that interest them in non-fiction books.
