Understand that language is organised as ‘texts’ that take different forms and use different structures to achieve their purposes

[Key concepts: text, meaning; Key processes: recognising, selecting]


  • understanding texts as different forms of communication which can be spoken, written, digital or visual, can be very short, for example, tekerleme, bilmece, not, fıkra, e-posta, or much longer, for example, mektup, masal and hikaye
  • understanding that different types of texts have different features, for example, repetition and rhythm in action songs and chants such as Komşu komşu, Yağ satarım bal satarım, Portakalı soydum
  • beginning to use metalanguage to talk about texts, for example, by identifying text types, such as bilmece, tekerleme, masal, fıkra, and describing typical features, for example, masal starts with Bir varmış, bir yokmuş, evvel zaman içinde ... and ends with Gökten üç elma düşmüş, biri masalı anlatana, biri dinleyene, biri de bütün iyi insanlara; tekerleme and bilmece both have rhymes and rhythms
  • noticing how familiar texts such as poems or stories are sequenced and organised, for example, by identifying titles, connections between pictures and texts, or familiar lines, as in dua (call to prayers), 23 Nisan şiirleri ve dizeler/dörtlükler, Resimlerle Atatürk’ün hayatı, Keloğlan resimleri ile başlıklar, Bayram Günü
