CAFE Reading Strategies

CAFE Reading Strategies in 2A with Miss Daws

At Barwon Heads we use the Reader’s Workshop model of teaching and learning. To support this we also use elements of the CAFE  reading model. Each week we have a different CAFE reading strategy as our whole class learning intention. CAFE is an acronym for Comprehension, Accuracy, Fluency and Expand vocabulary.

So far this year we have covered the following reading strategies:


– Check for understanding

– Monitor and use fix up strategies

– Back up and reread

– Retell the story
