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 homeschoolers, to enhance learning.

Embrace
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.

Beware
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.

My Thoughts
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.

      The CD is great – saves the dreadful spiral marks on the side of the page when photocopied!
