Guided reading is at the heart of the instructional reading programme. In this approach, teachers work with a small group of students to guide them purposefully through a text.

Guided reading involves:

  • selecting a purpose for reading
  • introducing the text
  • reading and responding to the text
  • extending students' word strategies
  • discussion and, where appropriate, follow up activities.

He Kohikohinga 43 targets students in years 3–5, from middle to senior primary school, and is written specifically, but not exclusively, for students in Māori immersion contexts. He Kohikohinga 43 aims to appeal to students' interests and experiences while enhancing their knowledge of te ao Māori and te ao whānui. This collection of writing has examples of poetic writing, narrative and articles.

The stories and ideas in He Kohikohinga are designed to support reading and writing programmes. The stories model appropriate language structures and features that students can use in their own writing. All the ideas in these teachers' notes are suggestions only, and teachers and students are encouraged to adapt them to suit their own learning contexts, needs, and interests.

To gain full benefit from He Kohikohinga, teachers should attempt to work with some of the language features and ideas in the text. The more students work with the words and features of language in the stories, the greater their retention of them will be. It is very important to provide a language-rich environment in which students can experiment with, and freely practise, newly acquired skills and ideas.

Each of the pieces of writing is accompanied by notes that support teachers in their programmes. These notes also contain headings under which explanations and ideas about how teachers can use the stories in He Kohikohinga are presented.
