Read & Respond

Overview

Now fully in line with 2014 Curriculum objectives

Raise literacy and attainment through a deep and active reading of best-loved children’s stories from acclaimed authors. Read & Respond takes growing readers into the heart of over 70 timeless titles, chosen to inspire genuine delight.

Each teacher resource book focuses on a popular children’s story, bringing it alive in a cross-curricular way. Explore every facet of the story through speaking and listening activities, debate and discussion, guided reading, creative writing exercises, quizzes, games and craft ideas.

Read & Respond is an ideal alternative to scheme or extract-based reading, letting children discover the joy of reading whole stories and novels. It builds literacy and thinking skills that raise overall achievement, while inspiring a love of reading for pleasure: a key indicator of future success.

“Reading and writing for enjoyment are two of the most powerful ways of getting children reading. Read & Respond provides exactly this.” Michael Morpurgo

Each resource book includes:

  • Plot, character and setting activities
  • Speaking and listening activities
  • Guided and shared reading sessions
  • Extended writing projects
  • Cross-curricular links and creative exercises
