by Bronwyn Tainui; illustrated by Jennifer Cooper. This text is levelled at Green 2.
This narrative is about a boy (Jack) whose mum is busy with a new job and unable to spend as much time with him as he would like. With some prompting from Aunty Jane, Jack realises that he can help to solve this problem. The context of busy working parents is likely to be within the experience of many students.
The text has a theme of working together to solve a problem. Content implied in the text and shown in the illustrations provides opportunities for students to make inferences about Jack’s feelings and to form a hypothesis about how he might help solve the problem. The text includes dialogue, sentences running over two lines, and a range of punctuation, including speech marks and commas, to support phrasing and meaning.
The following example highlights the sorts of reading behaviours teachers could expect to observe in students who are meeting the standard. Sometimes these behaviours will be in response to teacher prompts and questions, and sometimes they will be spontaneous as the students notice and respond to the ideas in the text. These behaviours may occur during the first or subsequent readings and discussions.
