Oral Reading Guide to Marks

Oral Reading Guide for Marking

 
Below is an overview of how oral reading will be evaluated in Grade Two. It may come in handy when listening to your child read out loud at home. Listen and stress one or two areas at a time to work on with your child and celebrate the successes they have along the way. Happy reading!
 
Oral Reading Evaluation Scheme
 
 
 
When reading orally, I generally listen for the following characteristics to be present when a student reads:
 
1)      Smoothness: reading by good phrasing rather than reading word by word; there should be no pauses unless called for by punctuation or context
 
2)      Alertness to punctuation: stopping at periods, pausing at commas, and raising voice at question marks
 
3)      Volume: reading loudly enough to be heard clearly at the back of the room; holding the book correctly and keeping the head up help the volume to improve
 
4)      Enunciation: saying the words clearly, not mumbling; some will need to slow down in order to accomplish this
 
5)      Speed: reading at a speed that enables the reader to be accurate, smooth, and expressive
 
6)      Accuracy: pronouncing words and reading sentences correctly
 
7)      Poise: having confidence in reading and speaking before others
 
8)      Expression: having good voice inflection to make the story interesting and realistic
 
Grade Range
 
A or A-                                    students who read smoothly with proper expression and
 
                                                need very little help
 
B+ or B                                   students who have good expression but need to sound out
 
                                                words occasionally, or who have to reread from time to
 
                                                time to get good expression
 
B- or C+                                  students who need to work on expression, but who know
 
                                                the words or can sound them out quickly
 
C or C-                                    students who are having difficulty with words and
 
expression                              
 
D+ or D                                   students who are struggling and must sound out nearly
 
                                                every word and reread several times before new reading is
 
                                                smooth
