Springboard Connect

This series , finely levelled using the reading recovery approach, meets the ever-changing needs of students from 4.5-9 years of age and helps teachers to guide students to develop their literacy skills. This is achieved through encouraging them to listen to, read, view, speak about, write, create and reflect on a variety of types of text. In addition, the Teacher’s Guide provides full support for teachers on scope and sequence, word counts, text-types, vocabulary and phonics, as well as tools for assessment. The series includes Connect Foundation student books from levels 1-8, 9-16, 17-23 and 24-30.
