Our tried-and-trusted teacher’s books are packed with dozens of teaching ideas for Key Stages 1, 2 and 3, including activities for guided and shared reading, writing, speaking, listening and assessing children’s understanding. Each teacher’s book is accompanied by a CD-ROM of interactive activities and printable resources to use in the classroom. Take a look inside. What’s more, a selection of our favourite teacher’s books are now available as PDF eBooks, so it’s easier than ever to bring these stories to life.
Read & Respond is perfect for the primary-secondary transition and Key Stage 3 correlation charts are now available to download for free, with objectives for reading, writing, speaking and grammar, punctuation and spelling. Take a look at a Key Stage 3 correlation chart.
New planning and guided reading resources will help you to implement Read & Respond as a whole-school literacy programme. Guided Reading Books help to bring together a range of Read & Respond resources for every year group and provide detailed notes to help boost children’s comprehension and problem-solving skills. The new Planning Guide includes a suggested teaching structure to help you implement Read & Respond as a whole-school reading programme covering Years 1-6.
