The Via Afrika Intermediate Phase Graded Readers are divided into three sets of twelve readers: a Grade 4 level, a Grade 5 level and a Grade 6 level. However, you may find it useful to use all three sets in one grade to give learners an opportunity to read at their correct level.
Learners should read books that are on their level or slightly below it, so that they can read easily and fluently. The reader should contain very few words that the learner cannot read or understand from the context. Once a learner has read all the books on a particular level, the learner can go on to the next level.
Each set of readers is graded from an easy level (suitable for learners reading at the simplest level) to more difficult levels (suitable for the learner reading at the higher levels of the grade). There are fiction readers, non-fiction readers and readers that are a mixture of fact and fiction. Each reader includes a few questions to think about or for discussion in a group.
Use the Via Afrika Intermediate Phase Graded Readers for independent reading, pair reading or guided group reading.
