The World Cup – you know you can’t ignore it, so embrace it instead.
Use this unique sporting opportunity to encourage literacy. Many reluctant readers just need to find the one story that captures their imagination to turn them into readers.
Cats and dogs, strawberries and cream, boys and football, some things just go together …
We bet they are!
Use that excitement and enthusiasm to get your children actively reading by introducing them to Sam.
Sam is football crazy and with his friends by his side he is unbeatable. It is his dream to play for England, maybe even in the World Cup one day.
Until that day comes, read all about him getting better at football with his mates, while your pupils get better at reading!
There are two series, each of 6 books. The books get progressively harder as you work through the series.
To make sure your emerging readers really get to grips with the stories there are teacher resources of photocopiable worksheets available that are designed to build on the stories, and help develop key literacy skills.
But don’t take our word for it. We have 500 copies of Football Crazy, the first book in the first series, to give away. To get a FREE copy, simply email me (firstname.lastname@example.org) with your name and postal address, and we will put a copy in the post to you.
