    Early Reading Development and Dyslexia-0 Early Reading Development and Dyslexia-0
    Author: Valerie Muter PhD, Great Ormond Street Hospital for Children and University of York
  • This beautifully illustrated storybook and workbook set has been created to support learners who, after acquiring the basics of reading and writing, have struggled to organically grasp the rules that govern spelling in the English language. The colourful storybook tells the story of the ‘Super Spelling School for Letters’, and the teacher who helps all the students come together to make words. Twenty-two of the most important spelling rules are explored and given meaning through the engaging story, each followed by a ‘quick quiz’ to help solidify the rule in the long-term memory. In the fully photocopiable workbook, activity pages for each rule develop reading, spelling and writing skills, allowing the child to put the rules into practice.

    Looking and Thinking 1

    £16.30 £15.99
    Looking and Thinking was designed to develop reasoning skills in which illustrations hold clues to help answer questions.  A picture page is followed by a page of multiple-choice questions and a second page of harder questions.
    For pupils experiencing problems with writing, the A questions will probably prove more acceptable, while more able pupils will find the B questions more challenging.
    However it is a very adaptable series and many teachers start the lesson as an oral activity before possibly finishing with written answers.
    Feedback has shown EAL pupils have great success with the activities.
