Using texts to teach Literacy

Discussion in 'Primary' started by emjy83, Mar 10, 2012.

  1. Was chatting to my deputy head the other day and he was saying how he teaches all his literacy through texts ie read a book and write the different genres through that.
    I LOVE the idea and have been on courses that have suggested it before but am struggling to understand how to put it into practise. I tried doing some research online but have not found any helpful ideas so I was wondering if anyone on here has any advice.
    I am currently teaching Y2 and hoping to stay there next year so it'd be great to be able to start this off in September - or possibly even trial it after SATs. But any ideas from other year groups would be welcomed too.
    Thanks [​IMG]
