The Comprehension Toolkit (Ages 5-8)
Our most recent publication, The Comprehension Toolkit (Ages 5-8) is a 240 page publication including more than 80 reading lessons to help busy teachers deliver high quality comprehension lessons.
This practical, research-based book aims to teach students how to apply strategies to texts and generalise them for daily life. Containing background information about comprehension, strategy and pedagogy overviews, the importance of data and considerations for teaching, the book also provides 82 explicit lessons for early years’ students.
Each lesson is supported by a digital file repository including more than 320 anchor charts and more than 260 text models.
A copy of The Comprehension Toolkit (Ages 5-8) is provided free to attendees of the Prep to Year 3 Reading Workshop: ‘The Big Six’ workshop. Alternatively copies can be purchased online.
The Daily Write (Early Years)
The Daily Write (Early Years) is a 48 page publication containing stimulus pictures with accompanying writing prompts. The book is designed for teachers to use as a shared text in poster format.
Daily writing, even for short periods of time, supports students to generate ideas, develop fluency of thinking, translate ideas more easily to text, apply skills and strategies for encoding and increase the speed at which subskills are recalled and recorded.
The Daily Write (Early Years) is available to attendees of many of our workshops. Alternatively copies can be purchased online.
