What is read, write and draw?
Read, Write and Draw includes word, phrase and sentence cards, which make it quick for teachers to differentiate for children. Designed for easy classroom use, there are 168 word cards packed in separate boxes, 108 phrase cards, and 108 sentence cards ... that’s lots of reading, writing and drawing!
Read, Write and Draw also provides vocabulary enrichment as children explore words with multiple meanings: Miss Moss is in a traffic jam; Mum has a dab of jam on her roll. Children love drawing – what a fun way of showing their understanding of the word, phrases or sentence focusing on the phonemes/graphemes in Stages Plus 4, 5 & 6.
- Easy to use and differentiate
- A valuable resource to send home for scaffolded reading and writing practice
- Consolidates everything that has been taught in Stages 1–4, and supports new teaching of consonant digraphs, blending adjacent consonants and reading two-syllable words.
