This term I have begun using a SRA reading laboratory where the children take cards at their level and answer the comprehension and vocabulary questions, then use an answer card to mark it.
It is rather American in concept, however as teachers we remember them with nostalgia when we were students at school, and so we were keen to have one. We are into our second week of using the lab, and I think it is quite popular. Of course it is not a complete reading programme and I recognise that. We will use it as a supplementary addtion to the class programme. I am looking forward to hearing what the students think of it in another few weeks.
