Phonics Books Diagnostic Assessment Sheet
When a pupil begins a reading programme it is important to assess where the pupil is at, what knowledge and skills he/she has acquired and what he/she needs to learn.
It is also useful to observe his/her reading strategies.
This will inform the teacher where to start and what to focus on.
This is particularly important for children who are struggling with reading. This assessment will help to determine from which point the teacher should start teaching.
The ‘Recommendations’ sheet will match suitable decodable books (from the Phonic Books range) to the reading level of the pupil.
