Book Description
Special Needs Literacy is a series of fully photocopiable teacher's books. Each book contains: * 'crib sheets' specially written with non-specialist classroom helpers in mind; * thirty 20-minute group activities for word, sentence, or text level tasks - enough for 6 weeks (half a term) of literacy hours; * reading extracts that cover a range of genres and interest levels appropriate for a particular year groups; * activities pitched at a lower Reading Level. For example, texts in the Year 3 book have a range and genre appropriate to Y3 but these are matched with Level 2 activities (for Y4 the Level is 2/3 and for Y5, Level 3). The target level and Framework objectives covered by each book are clearly stated on the cover so that teachers can choose as appropriate for their needs; *suggestions for homework tasks. Fifteen of the 20-minute sessions are supported by three different reading books. The titles chosen are well-known and widely available - and may well be books that teachers already have in school. The reamining 15 sessions are supported by photocopiable textextracts to ensure appropriate genre cover. The units in this book are based on the following children's books. 'Frog and Toad Together' by Arnold Lobel, 'Billy's Sunflower' by Nicola Moon,'Jack and the Robbers' by Jill Bennett; and on thefollowing photocopiable texts provided in this book: 'Stone Soup (playscript); 'The Life Cycle of a Frog'(information); 'Spaghetti' by Noel Petty, 'Two of a Kind' by Ian Souter, 'Climb the Mountain' by Wes Magee (poem)."
