Paired readers with lesson plans
134 themed pairs (fiction and non-fiction) present key content words and high-frequency words that allow beginner pupils to develop a range of different reading strategies.
A comprehensive lesson plan is available for every pair of readers, giving the teacher a unique level of instruction and support. These lesson plans contain before, during and after activities and can be split into four 30-minute instructional sessions and one review session.
At Early Emergent levels 1 & 2, Vocabulary Starters introduce key vocab through labelled photographs. These are mapped to each pair of readers at these levels.
Flying Start Perspectives
Extend middle and upper level pupils’ thinking with additional points of views on the issues introduced in the paired texts.
Flying Start Perspectives contain short texts in a magazine-style format and include posters, arguments, discussions, letters, and visual images. Lesson Plans help teachers engage and support children in critical discussions, assist them in recognising different points of view, and then to write about it.
