The activities are

Primary Language Curriculum, and provide an at-a-glance opportunity for formative assessment of children’s learning.
How it works:
The activities in 180 Days of Reading Book B are organised into weekly themes.
Days 1, 2 and 3 follow a consistent format, with with a short piece of text and four corresponding items. These pages can be used to assess children’s engagement, phonological and phonemic awareness, vocabulary and comprehension.
A longer text is used for Day 4 and 5. On Day 4, children answer more in-depth questions that assess understanding of purpose, genre and voice as well as comprehension strategies and fluency and self-correction.
The activity provided for Day 5 is a writing task in which children respond to the text in Day 4. This is an open task, allowing teachers or parents to use their own discretion as to which writing skills will be assessed.
