New Ibis Readers Practice Introductory Book by Esmee E. Mejias, Noreen Majias-Bennett, Olly N. Stanford

The New Ibis Readers Practice Books (Introductory Book)aims to arouse and sustain the pupil's interest in mastering the skills necessary for fluent and intelligent reading. It provides for the systematic development of language, for continuous intellectual growth and for the appreciation of good literature, as well as laying the foundation of good spelling. The scheme consists at Infant Level of four readers, now available in new editions (and with revised notes for the teacher). The authors have kept the main language structures and word lists of the previous books but the text has been enhanced by new artwork which has been designed to give the children the greatest help in interpreting the words on the page. The Readers are now a larger size to enable the illustrations to be more effective. This means that some of the pages do not have the same number as in the previous edition. Each Reader has an accompanying Practice Book, also in the original edition. The Practice Book provides graded exercises that give further practice in the skills outlined in the corresponding Reader. The notes to the teacher at the beginning of the Practice Book and the instructions at the bottom of each page should be carefully studied. For best results the scheme should be used in its entirety, that is the Infant Introductory Book and the Infant Book One with their accompanying Practice Books for the first-year pupils, the Infant Book Two and the Infant Book Three and their Practice Books for the second-year pupils. Every opportunity should be taken to correlate each lesson with other subjects on the curriculum, so that new words will be recognised in other subjects and children will gain confidence in their reading abilities.
