Yr 4 Stories with Historical Settings: Teachers' Resource for Guided Reading (White Wolves: Stories with Historical Settings)

by KarinaLaw (Author)

Synopsis

Accompanying the specially-commissioned White Wolves fiction range, which has been written in consultation with the Centre for Literacy in Primary Education, each of these books contains five literacy lesson plans and five photocopiable activities for each of the three graded story books in the Year 3 and 4 strands. The activities are designed for guided reading sessions in schools, in which each class is divided into groups of children with a comparable level of reading experience. The teacher spends time helping each group to negotiate a book specially chosen to match their experience level, and also sets the children literacy activities which they can work through by themselves. Guided reading helps children develop strategies for reading which enable them to become independent readers.

Book Overview: Top authors and illustrators have contributed to White Wolves fiction books to create stimulating and challenging books that are not reading scheme titles. The themes of each Year strand are drawn from the Summary of the Range of Work from the NLS. The series benefits from the expertise of CLPE whose interest is supplying teachers with books of the highest standards of literacy and imaginative excellence to encourage children's own reading. Karina Law the teachers' guide writer, is a skilled and experienced practitioner of guided reading in the classroom and knows of current developments and innovations in the teaching of guided reading. The series is already garnering praise in the press: 'It's a pleasure to read commissioned work which fulfils its brief so imaginatively' (Books for Keeps).
