The focus of the lesson was to identify clunks in our reading and clarify meaning.
When we are reading and we can read the words and understand what we are reading we click, click, click along but when we come to a word we don't know or understand the meaning of we clunk and stop.
The strategies were printed on A4 Clunk Expert cards and laminated so that the students could refer to them during shared, guided and independent reading.
The students shared their specific achievement which may have been a clunk that they had identified, a concept map they had constructed, new information they had discovered or new vocabulary they had developed.
Re-read the sentence with the clunk and the sentence before or after it, looking for clues
