The Literacy Shed elves have been busy writing texts for www.literacyshedplus.com and these hopefully will be on the site in January for subscribers.
We thought it would be a nice Christmas present to give you a little preview to what is coming soon.
Each short text is accompanied by VIPERS reading comprehensions and the answers.
How do we decide on the stages?
The texts are passed through a lexile analyser. Each text receives a lexile score and the stages are based on the following lexile levels.
Stage 1 = 200 - 300
Stage 2 = 300 - 575
Stage 3 = 575 - 725
Stage 4 = 725 - 750
Stage 5 = 750 - 920
Stage 6 = 920+
