Product Description

Review

Reading Explorers by Hopscotch are a super time saving series of books aimed at providing quality reading resources within the primary school classroom. We have read 2,3 and 4 tough the series is also available for years 5 and 6, following the same format. Each books comes complete with text and lesson plan. The text is for children of average ability within the year group based on national average. The lesson is split into three sections: Warm up questions, main questions and evaluative questions along with suggested timings for each part of the session. Lesson plans also include key skills or question types and essential vocabulary. Included in each book is a helpful five staged helping hand approach to each session along with suggested resources. The CD provides differentiated texts for higher and lower ability within your classroom. We at Top Class Primary loved these resources and can see how it would cut down on planning time for guided reading sessions. --Top Class Primary magazine

Format: Kindle Edition
The kindle version of this book is not substantially cheaper than the paper one. However, the resource text images are hopelessly small on the kindle even when increased to the maximum size. This is a serious flaw and will make them impractical for use in class. The paper book also comes with a cd rom, which, of course, is not included with the kindle. Would recommend the book in paper form, but not the kindle version.

This is a wonderful resource for busy teachers and means that you don't have to spend hours looking for guided reading texts. It includes most of the genres covered in year 3. Every text comes in three (slightly) different ability levels. One thing that would improve it would be if the questions were linked to the APP assessment foci. But overall, a very useful resource.

This is a great book that help many reception children. This particular book was sent as a replacement book as the original order appeared to have come from another source and could not be classed as new.

A great book to boost comprehension, the disk contains differentiated texts and the book itself has a range of questions that use interpretation and evidence from the text.
