This series represents a new phonics program with extensive teacher resources for extended phonics classroom implementation. These readers cover important environmental and sustainability topics. These books can be used as take home readers, and as guided readers in the Literacy Block (AM lessons for phonics and literacy).
READING to LEARN and LEARNING to READ
The FOCUS is LITERACY!
These can be used as:
Take Home Readers
and in English lessons!
Phonics and Decoding The books can be used a stand-alone program or integrated as reading exercises in a pre-existing program, with a focus on Phonics and Decoding.
Non-fiction The crowded curriculum is a problem. Programming content by inclusion in the literacy block is a bonus. These titles have the focus as literacy and secondly, as curriculum content. The driver is READING to LEARN while the student is LEARNING to READ.
ACARA Perspectives ACARA perspectives are integral to these readers, and provide an opportunity to raise awareness of material limitations, pollution, and energy demands as well as the individual's role in being involved in the conservation element.
Teacher Guides We have also produced activity books for Sustainability Readers! These activities will help teachers to integrate the Sustainability Readers into their classrooms and save time on classroom preparation. We also have an Answers book available to again help teachers save time!
