I really loved this resource as it is just the most comprehensive resource you will find that understands how comprehension works with reading as a skill. I loved the way the pack seamlessly works together with the resources in it-colour coded cards for differentiation, extra resources for even more extension activities, grammar and punctuation and assessment and tracking sheets. It is a very appealing and attractive resource that will ensure a school is covering and challenging the independent and more able readers they have. You could also use these really well in a group teaching setting or station teaching. They will free up your time significantly as the cards are all designed to be self-assessed by the child. These boxes are expensive but a wise and long-sighted investment for a school as long as they were well looked after, they could last forever! I know some schools are putting them down as part of their rental book scheme so that may be an option.Anseo.net
I have one in my classroom and it is an absolutely outstanding resource. There is just so much to it- a very substantial offering indeed. I use mine twice weekly for comprehension practice. The children love the stories and are always so eager to move up through the levels! The box houses a very detailed and thorough teacher resource book which details exactly how to use the resource. It has 75 literacy cards and answer cards too. It is so easy to differentiate too as the resources are colour coded by level, and hence all children can work away at their own pace.Múinteoir Valerie
