Reading isn’t just about books: free creative teaching resource

You may not wish to share the news that reading isn’t just about books with your reluctant readers! They may not realize how much reading they actually do.

Ask your children how often they read during the day. If they don’t start mentioning sources other than books such as signs, mail, text messages, the Internet etc. you can lead them towards it.

This worksheet challenges them to find and read a number of different texts.

Children develop their reading skills by reading, reading and reading! The activities in How to be Brilliant at Reading are designed to help Key Stage 2 (KS2) pupils develop fluency, accuracy, confidence and interest. Daily reading is crucial to the development of interest and good skills. The strategies to be found in the book are proven ways of giving children ownership of, and responsibility for, their own reading development.
