Eifron Watkinson from Addington School, Reading takes a look at Read & Respond Elmer for us.
Children were all interested in the suggested activities and were motivated by them. Group particularly enjoyed the dressing up activities where the teacher observed lots of descriptive language being used and organisational skills coming to the fore.
Excellent idea to include Show Your True Colours which linked very well to the SEAL work going on in school at present.
Teachers found the resource included a wide range of activities to cover most abilities within the class. Having Learning Objectives clearly shown was a time saving bonus too.
Work led onto performing a drama for other classes to watch that the children had written for themselves.
All the KS1 and Foundation Stage teachers were impressed by the resource which gave them new ideas based on a familiar book.
As co-ordinator I would buy this book for school as it was easy to use, provided motivating activities for staff and pupils and saved a lot of planning time.
Large colour laminated posters of the worksheets would be useful for group work.
