Reading schemes have attracted a great deal of negative criticism over the years.

Encourage children to reread their own writing and drafts com­ posed during shared writing sessions to consider the sense of what has been written. Refrain from correcting the miscues children make during reading when these do not affect meaning. Supply unfamiliar words during reading sessions rather than teach­ ing word or phonic skills on the spot to ensure the sense of what is read is maintained.
