I've found out at this stage in the year that I need to change 2 of my books for next year to teach to a mixed attainment class and I'm struggling to think of engaging texts. They are supposed to be linked to our themes and to be used within shared reading / guided reading and as a spring board for wider literacy lessons. Would anyone have any ideas that could help me so that I can swot up over the summer and write two new schemes? One theme is related to the Maya and the other to mountains. Any texts you could suggest would be great. Even if they're just linked to the country rather than the specific time period, that would be great. Only ideas I can come up with at the moment are: Journey to the River Sea and The Abominables which are both by the same author, Eva Ibbotson, so can't really do both. Many thanks in advance!
