Dockside : Series


Described as a ‘second chance’ series, these very short simple stories are aimed at the older student who missed out on gaining basic literacy skills. Written in a very modern style - text messaging style and speech bubbles. A genuine story told in a very limited number of words and with restricted vocabulary. Not constrained by trying to be exclusively phonic . Strikes a good balance between phonic words, high-frequency words and other words needed to help the story along. Illustrations reflect the age-range of the reader – teenage characters and subject matter.3 Stages: Stage 1 reading age 4 - 5 (15 titles); Stage 2 Reading age 5 – 5.5 (10 titles); Stage 3 reading age 5.5 - 6.5 20 titles) Accompanying Teachers’s Book and CD Rom plus a Docklands map and 'meet the characters' poster.
