Instagram Review August 2019

"If your school is anything like mine, your class has readers that you remember as a kid!!!! I know we do! @literacytower kindly sent me some books and I was so impressed with the beautiful photos, quality text and the massive amount of lesson ideas and teacher support in the teacher book. I find guided reading so difficult to teach as there are so many concepts to cover! These teacher books literally spell it out for you with ideas and activities matched to every single page! Genius! Can't wait to show these to our English team!"
There are two sides to every story ... so why not explore both?
Through paired fiction titles, The Literacy Tower offers young readers the opportunity to delve deeper into a single story – to explore different character personalities, perspectives and motivations. Paired fiction also helps grow students’ understanding of how and why everyone in a story makes a contribution to its eventual outcome. Paired fiction is a great way to:
• compare and contrast characters, events and settings;
• increase students’ engagement with fiction styles;
• provide an excellent foundation for increased creativity and imagination
in their own writing;
• teach curriculum language and literacy content in context.
The Preposterous Problem Parrot
A pet shop owner is having a closing-down sale. All her pets have been sold, except for one parrot (which has learned how to say naughty rhymes). No matter how hard she tries, the pet shop owner cannot find a good home for her problem parrot – until, one day, there is a knock at the door.
Blackspit: The Buccaneer's Birthday

Will the last shop have anything?
