Oxford Literacy Guided Reading - Levels 6-11

Early Stage

Students reading Oxford Literacy texts from Levels 6-11 are described as reading at the "Early" stage of the Oxford Literacy reading program. Typically readers at this level are required to:

  • Check against at least two of the cueing systems: Does it make sense? Does it look right?
  • Re-read to fix mistakes
  • Break words into chunks or syllables and use analogies to problem-solve unknown words
  • Use "skip and return" strategy
  • Make links to prior knowledge to assist in understanding
  • Adapt reading strategies to different text types
  • Select books according to purpose for reading
  • Use more complex grammatical knowledge to help predict unknown words and assist with meaning
  • Adjust reading rate and phrasing according to text type and complexity of text
