Synopsis

Short Reads Non-fiction Box 4 Ages 8+ (Level 610-800) by Scholastic Inc.

Boost literacy and develop close reading skills with finely-levelled short texts suitable for KS1 and KS2 pupils. Each box includes 40 themed reading cards with six copies of each and a teacher's guide. * Develop deep comprehension skills with close reading * Challenging non-fiction topics for children to explore and explain * Motivate the whole class with snappy, fast reads and high-interest topics * Build writing skills with 'Write about Reading' tasks * Ideal for group reading sessions and independent reading Each Teacher's Guide covers 40 group reading sessions including discussion topics and independent writing tasks. The Teacher's Guide contains for each of the texts: overviews for the teacher, focus questions to help prepare the children for the first reading, detailed questions about the text features and content to help the teacher guide pupils back to the text for the second reading, Discussion questions that encourage re-reading, summarising and synthesising and Writing Tasks that require re-reading and higher order thinking skills. All of which help develop close reading skills (Close reading describes the careful, sustained interpretation of a brief passage of text. Research links the close reading of text to significant gains in reading).

It is THE website to use for narrowing down your search for any book. Definitely knocks the socks off any other book review website.
