  • recognising differences between the layout, language features and formats of different types of texts such as masal, şarkı, şiir, mektup, makale, haber metni
  • identifying and comparing characteristic elements in texts such as poems or fables, for example, kuklalar ve gölge oyunları, şiirde kafiye, dize ve dörtlük, masallardaki insanüstü kişiler ve olaylar
  • recognising differences between spoken and written versions of texts such as greetings or farewells, merhaba, hoşça kal; or how güle güle can be used in spoken texts, but Sevgili Ayşe Teyze and görüşmek dileğiyle would be used in written texts
  • comparing familiar texts in Turkish and English and noticing features they have in common, for example, the start of fairytales in English, ‘Once upon a time …’ compared to Bir varmış, bir yokmuş, evvel zaman içinde ... in Turkish; rhymes, lines and verses in English and Turkish poems
  • distinguishing between different types of texts based on identified purpose and intended audience, for example, differences between SMS mesajı-telefon görüşmesi, yazılı piyes-kukla oyunu, masal-fıkra.
