Year 3, 4, 5 & 6 Screening & Tracking Manual

Year Level: Years 3 to 6

The Year 3, 4, 5 & 6 Screening & Tracking Manual outlines step-by-step instructions including what and when to screen, the materials required, time allocations and discontinue rules. We recommended that the screens are administered following a solid period of repeated targeted instruction as outlined in the Phonic & Sight Word Sequence. In this way, the screens function as a check-in on progress.

As a support to the Year 3, 4, 5 & 6 Screening & Tracking Manual, PLD has recently released Year 3, 4, 5 & 6 Tracking Sheets Videos which outline how to create the three targeted teaching groups. Keep in mind that it may be appropriate for schools to adapt the timing of the skills depending upon the demographics of the school community and the associated student entry levels to the school.

PLD’s Teaching Sequence Manual for Year 3, 4, 5 & 6 will be released in late 2021.
