What’s it about?
This is a well organised book (which comes with a CD). It has been organised into different literacy sections with lesson outline, template and completed example that can be used by teachers, or home-schoolers, to enhance learning.
The simplicity of the book withe engaging ideas and ways to make learning literacy concepts fun is great. I also appreciate that the templates come on CD as well making printing much easier.
There are lots of ideas in it…but in the years I have owned it I have only used about five activities. I am not sure if this is because they don’t appeal or wouldn’t work with junior primary ages.
This resource book can be quite expensive. I would suggest if a friend, or the school, has it really have an in-depth look through it before deciding to spend the money. It has lots of great ideas….but implementing them to be relevant and to be completed in a reasonable time-frame may see issues arise.
