Materials to Support Quick Reads

Teaching and Learning Resources , Literacy
Skills for Life Network

The Vital Link has produced learning materials to accompany the Quick Reads titles

Materials have been developed for each of the Quick Reads

 

‘The introductory file ‘Quick Reads: Approaches to Reading for
Pleasure’ outlines the rationale for the design of the learning
materials, and offers activities, ideas and resources for developing
reader knowledge and confidence in the higher reading skills. You may
like to read this first, but it is not necessary to do so before using
the individual titles.

 

The activities are offered to be used completely flexibly according to
the reader audience. They are not session plans: you can deliver all or
part of them, and shorten, develop, adapt and transfer them to other
books if appropriate. Our aim is to get emergent readers hooked on
books and reading for their own reward, through imaginative, creative
and fun engagement activities.’
