Synopsis

Breakthrough to Literacy Teacher's Word Tiles by Martin Coles, Christine Hall, Brian Thompson, Pamela Schaub

Part of the magnetic version of Breakthrough to Literacy , these magnetic tiles are printed with target sight words. These tiles are a large-format version of those used by pupils. For this edition of Breakthrough to Literacy the components have been streamlined and the teacher's book has been simplified and revised in line with curricula requirements in England and Scotland, and with those of the National Literacy Strategy. The series' holistic approach to literacy acknowledges the essential connection between reading and writing. It enables children to compose their own texts using word tiles from a basic vocabulary and a magnetic board on which the sentences are created. Children then transfer the text by copy writing into their own books, which then become their own reading material. In this way, composition is not entirely dependent on secretarial skills. Children also have a sense of ownership and a feeling of achievement derived from being in control of the literary process. The format of the materials encourages independent learning, physical involvement in the act of composition and creative language play. The series provides the stimulus for using language in all ways - listening, speaking, reading and writing. It integrates easily into classroom literary activities and fits with any scheme or approach. In addition, the material is suitable for use by children lacking in literary experiences and those with special needs.
