Les histoires sont précédées de quelques pages de jeux et d’activités qui familiarisent l’enfant au nouveau lexique, également présent sur les rabats de la couverture sous la forme d’un petit dictionnaire illustré. Au fil du texte, l’enfant découvre d’autres petits jeux qui rendent la lecture plus active. Le CD audio/Rom qui accompagne chaque livre comporte, outre le texte lu, de nombreuses activités pour la classe adaptées à l’usage du tableau interactif.
Helbling Young Readers is an exciting new series of graded readers for Primary Schools in 5 levels.
Engaging stories with beautiful full-colour illustrations, specially written to appeal to young learners of English, introduce high-frequency words in order to promote fluency from an early age. Each story is carefully graded and language is presented both as lexical groups and language functions.
Accompanying Interactive Whiteboard compatible CD-ROMs include a complete reading of the story, chants and games and link to the Young Readers website.
All materials use an open type font which has been devised to help children with reading difficulties.
All texts and recordings are in British English.
Open-out flaps with picture dictionary, structures, vocabulary, letter to the reader and CLIL links.
Helbling Young Readers draw links with other classroom topics, developing cross-curricular skills and making the most of real classroom
learning and time. If you are reading The Thirsty Tree with your pupils you can immediately see you can also use it in Maths and Geography class.
All language exercised in each specific book is highlighted as either new or recycled from a lower level. There is always a perfect balance of new and revised structures in order to enhance and reinforce learning.
Language is presented both as lexical groups and language functions.
On page activities often link in with other curricular subjects and allow the readers to interact with the story. Before and after reading activities preteach and practise words and structures and provide skills and pronunciation practice.
Each level has its own mascot, which grows in size as the reader gets older.
