Germs at School
SKU / ISBN:
Author: Fletcher, Suzanne and Crimeen, Carole
The germs are playing in the classroom after the students go home. Children will immediately find these attractive and fun readers a great way to practise their decoding. Skills are built sequentially with full teacher directions given with each reader.
The beautiful comic format was chosen to provide an appealing and familiar format to beginning readers. The story unfolds and provides oral language opportunities with the graphics. The text is structured for decoding so it is very limited in word range. The children will be able to decode or be presented with prior familiarisation with sight words. Children will immediately find these attractive and fun readers a great way to practise their decoding. Phonics Skills are built sequentially with full teacher directions given with each reader. Each reader is unique in layout and character presentation to provide an engaging and rich reading experience. The more children practise their reading skills the faster they will achieve fluency and independent reading. It is strongly advised to provide daily opportunities for children to read. The series covers a sequential plan of work and can be an additional support to other classroom activities. The set covers the initial consonants and then blends. There are teacher guidance notes for each of these readers with listed sight words to review before starting on the series.
