About the Reading Target Cards
The Reading Target Cards have been developed, adapted and improved over many years. Below is a brief explanation about how they work.
The front of each card includes key knowledge, skills and understanding relevant to the specific stage of reading development.
The reverse side of each card lists ideas and hints to help parents and carers as they seek to support their child's reading development.
