Three primary literay resources are reviewed by teachers Primary teachers evaluate three recommended teaching resources for literacy: a creative writing book, an animation for teaching narrative, and a talk-for-writing resource.
The resources have been recommended by teachers themselves.
Teacher Danielle Dennis recommends the creative writing book, ‘Improving Story Writing’. Year 5 co-ordinator Sarah Pearce advocates ‘The Piano’, a moving short animation available from the National Strategies website, and literacy subject co-ordinator Alison Johnson suggests ‘Talk for Writing’, an online strategy that aids children’s creative and thinking processes for storytelling.
Teachers from schools around the country comment on these resources, as well as revealing their own favourite literacy resources, including ones you can create yourself.
