The TruckBook - 2004
Reading Level: 2; Colour Wheel: Magenta. Sails Literacy Series - developed by leading New Zealand educationalists and authors Jill Eggleton and Jo Windsor. The Sails Literacy Series is the perfect resource for Guided Reading and Writing, Reciprocal Reading and Independent Reading. The engaging visuals and subjects will motivate your students to read for pleasure and for information. At the Emergent level, opportunity is provided for children to learn and practise high-frequency words required to start the reading process. Students need to be aware of visual information in texts and to be able to interpret the meaning. Simple visual information is introduced for children to interpret - for example, speech bubbles, pictorial panels, simple maps, etc. The Sails series at this Emergent level has both fiction and non-fiction books, which use straightforward and meaningful language. The non-fiction books include an index to introduce and develop children's skills in accessing and retrieving information.
