Book Details

Book Description
The "Literacy Hour Units" series aims to resource that part of the National Literacy Strategy that calls for shared and guided group reading of a common text within the structure of the Literacy Hour framework. Using selected titles from the Scholastic Children's Book list, the series provides multiple copies of the books for group reading, along with teachers' resource books containing both lesson plans for using the texts within the Literacy Hour structure as well as supporting photocopiable activity sheets for pupils. Lessons are organized under headings of "Whole-class Work", "Group Work" and "Plenary". An overview grid provides at-a-glance information about the word, sentence and text-level work covered. Each teacher's book has an A1 double-sided, text-based poster in the middle for use as shared text for whole-class teaching. In "A New Home For Tiger", Mother Tiger announces that they're moving to a new home. Tiger eagerly packs his things. But moving means that everything is unfamiliar - and Tiger doesn't like it. So he takes himself back to his old home. Here, all alone, he comes to understand that "home" means many different things."
