Structure

Scholastic Literacy Skills

The series offers everything to help you develop essential literacy basics.
  • Contains activities that make literacy skills real and relevant to children.
  • Opportunities for speaking and listening activities.
Here’s how to get started:
  1. Choose the relevant book for your class.
  2. Use the teachers’ notes to choose a relevant skill to teach your children, boost your background knowledge, find the appropriate photocopiable page and any further activity ideas.
  3. Use the CD-ROM to display the chapter’s poster, the photocopiable page (with answers, where appropriate) and, if applicable, the interactive activity.
  4. Use the interactive activities as starter or plenary activities to support work on the photocopiable sheets.
  5. You can refer to the Objectives grid to see how each activity fits the Renewed Framework.

It contains purposeful activities to support 30 or more of the photocopiable pages which are found in the supporting teachers’ book. And they are designed to support starter or plenary activities.

Each CD-ROM contains:
  • All the photocopiable pages, with answers where appropriate.
  • Interactive activities related to 30 or more of the photocopiable pages.
