Structure

Read & Respond

To get started with Read & Respond all you need to do is:

  1. Choose a children’s book, from Owl Babies to Kensuke’s Kingdom, to study with your class
  2. Order the corresponding Read & Respond Teacher Resource Book
  3. Add a Read & Respond Interactive CD-ROM to really get your lessons buzzing!

Read & Respond Teacher Resource Titles

In-depth analysis of each book to get the whole class thinking about the story—and expressing their thoughts aloud and in writing. Within each Teacher Resource Book you’ll find:

  • Background information
  • Detailed chapter notes
  • Plot, character and setting activities
  • Shared reading section, with three extracts to read as a class
  • ‘Talk about it’ section to get the children discussing feelings and ideas around the book
  • ‘Get writing’ activities to help children structure and express their views about the book
  • Assessment activities*

Read & Respond Interactive

These multimedia CD-ROMs can be used as standalone products, or to expand upon the corresponding Read & Respond teacher’s book. Read & Respond Interactive is ideal for exploring cross-curricular themes and for inspiring reluctant readers.

Each CD-ROM contains:

  • Teaching notes, including lesson plans, differentiation, cross-curricular links and editable notes
  • An author interview or biography
  • Audio clips
  • Text extracts
  • Cross-curricular photos and video clips to help put the story into context
  • A word bank – linked to the text extracts – containing audio and text definitions
  • A selection of interactive whiteboard activities.

Children’s Books

We can supply each children’s title covered by the Read & Respond series as a pack of 6 or 30 books, or as a single purchase.
