Letter for Parents
As soon as a child has been taught how to read the first book with automaticity and good expression, an introductory letter can be sent home with this first book to help parents/carers to support their child's reading. Subsequent books can be sent home early in the instruction. Parents/Carers should be asked to follow the guidelines at the beginning of each book.

Picture Sheets for Recording Reading Progress and for the Child to Colour


Beneath the picture of each book, space has been allotted for two stars: the first to be given after completion of a reading, the second after re-reading with expression. It is vital that any 'star system' never leads to rushing through books. Some children will take a long time to complete two readings of a book and their efforts and achievements are deserving of much encouragement and praise. Certificates of Success can be downloaded on completion of each set.
