    and may be ready for the next colour band for guided reading sessions. ; 90-95% accuracy (3-5 miscues): The child can read this text with guidance and

    instruction. This is the ideal band for guided reading sessions.

    ; Provide the child with the book. Introduce the book but do not describe the content. ; Explain that you are going to listen and make notes while the child reads to you. ; Allow the child to read. Only interrupt to give a word when the child has made a good

    attempt to read it. Make a note of strategies used to tackle tricky words. ; After reading, ask the child to tell you about the story, or to answer some questions

    about the story. Include recall and inference questions.
