Product Description

Review

The book I found easily accessible in terms of layout with the clear ‘what to do’, variations and examples section… a useful addition to a teacher’s desk!

 

I will continue to be evangelizing to teachers about the ways they can teach and embed both skills and knowledge through these kind of memorable activities rather than result to dry spelling / grammar teaching so think that again the book would fit very well within this context.

 

- Judy Clark, National Literacy Trust

 

This is a must-have book for every primary school teacher. It is full of a wide variety of inspired activities to engage every pupil, whatever their ability. The format is very clear and user friendly and as a supply teacher, I have found it invaluable. A highly recommended purchase.

- Annie Galvin, Teacher

This book is packed with easy-to-use literacy ideas. It reminds teachers that literacy can be fun! Great for getting the boys on board - the competitions and challenges are just right for them. If you're new to teaching or even if you've been around a while, I bet you'll find ideas to spark up your literacy lessons.

- Dee Reid, Independent Literacy Consultant
