Low ability reading books appropriate for teens

Discussion in 'Special educational needs' started by sjbarton, Dec 16, 2010.

  1. Hi all,
    I am looking for some low ability reading books (around Level 1 to 3/4) that will be of interest to secondary school pupils.
    I have recently been offered some funding and am in desperate need of low ability books that aren't about cats on mats!
    Any advice or help would be much appreciated.
    Thank you in advance.


     
  2. There are also these new books:
    http://jerabooks.com/
    'Battle Cries', a comic books series for older, struggling readers age
    11+. 'Each book focuses on a particular sound and is deliberately
    contrived to contain multiple spellings of the sound'.
     
  3. Sorry, that jera books link seems to have disappeared [​IMG]
     
  4. You'll find them now at: http://www.sounds-write.co.uk/jerabooks.htm
     
  5. Barrington Stoke range of titles for teenagers.
     
  6. Hi Sjbarton, Try 'Easy Reader' books they start quite basic but are age appropriate. You might like to try and get your group to do a Round R'obin'. Suggest a theme i.e. football - get your learners to create a short story, each adding their own input perhaps even creating characters and team colours. Good Luck. match
     
  7. Hi
    go to http://www.skillsworkshop.org/ there are examples of Readwell Series of reading books
    Readwell Road books - the thousands of you that have downloaded Linda Hoole's adult reading scheme will be delighted to learn that Linda has decided to go ahead and publish the entire series. The books will soon be available to purchase from http://www.readwellroad.com/ - in the meantime please contact Linda directly<font size="2"> linda.hoole@ntlworld.com if you would like further details. Please note the sample sets of three stories from each "Step" (Step 4 coming soon) will still be available on skillsworkshop (Step 1 | Step 2 | Step 3). Good luck Linda!
