Atamarie Rohe Tui,
Here are some ideas that I have got from my Reading Recovery tutor, Nicki.
Reading and writing stories.
For families with devices, below are some wonderful links where children can listen to appropriate stories. Copy and paste them into your search bar, if you are unable to click on the link.
- The audio section of Hei Listen! has short segments of children reading their own compositions:
- A link to the audio of Ready to Read books could be used with or without the text. Children can at least hear the stories being read so when they return to school, they will be familiar with the characters and plot. You might want to tell parents which colour in the colour wheel to click on.
Picture books read aloud for young children can be found at the following sites.
- Many of us will remember listening to children’s stories on Radio NZ on a Sunday morning: storytime.rnz.co.nz
- On this American site, parents can find books suitable for 6-year olds. US grades are used as guides (kindergarten = year 1 NZ, grade 1 = year 2 NZ, grade 2 = year 3 NZ). The text appears at the bottom of the screen as American actors etc read the book: storylineonline.net/
Our junior learners can find some learning activities here.
