Description - Igniting Children's Writing by Mark McCaughan
Research by the Education Endowment Foundation has confirmed that developing metacognition (supporting pupils to think about and develop themselves as learners) is a strategy with high and proven impact. From Snakes and Ladders to Countdown Conundrums, this book provides 50 photocopiable games to get children playing with and being comfortable around words by encouraging them to independently think and talk about their writing and reading choices. Igniting Children's Writing is the perfect resource for any teacher looking to develop literacy skills across the curriculum and help their pupils gain confidence in reading, writing, thinking, spelling and talking.
These 50 activities are not only extremely effective for Reading SATs preparation, but they are also fun, creative and can be easily adapted by teachers. Each game has been tried and tested by author Mark McCaughan, who is currently supporting schools where performance was low in the Reading SATs, and using the activities to great effect. This photocopiable book also includes links to additional resources to be accessed via download.
