Reading Spelling Writing Maths

Good readers don't have to guess.
It takes a truly independent reader
to read the following ...



'Twas brillig, and the slithy toves
Did gyre and gimble in the wabe;
All mimsy were the borogroves,
And the mome raths outgrabe.

Beware the Jabberwock, my son!
The jaws that bite; the claws that catch!
Beware the Jubjub bird, and shun
The frumious Bandersnatch!'

Lewis Carol's poem can be used as an initial screening test.

Any reader who can fluently read it is not in need of assistance in word identification skills.
Accurate word identification skills are essential to the reading task. If a student misreads a word then comprehension is compromised.

It is possible, however, for students with excellent skills at word level to experience comprehension difficulties.
