Reading Comprehension - Retrieval Day 1
READING COMPREHENSION FOCUS - RETRIEVAL - DAY 1
Retrieval is when you read through some text and locate the key words, phrases or information required. Sometimes this can be done by using 'skim and scan' to quickly hunt for the key idea without having to re-read the whole text.
Load up and read through the PowerPoint below. This will introduce you to "Rex Retriever" and the type of questions he will be asking you after you read each short piece of text over the next 4 days.
There are 2 PowerPoints and 2 tasks below. One is aimed at Year 2 and the other for Year 3. You can choose your own level of difficulty ... or even do both if you prefer.
Once you have read the short piece of text, complete the questions. The answers are on the last sheet ... so no cheating! You can use the answers to double-check your work at the end.
