A complete resource from BBC World Service provides informational text for English or ESL classes to teach vocabulary, grammar, and reading skills. Learners participate in small group work, whole class discussions, and role-plays to explore the universal topics presented in a current news article. Although the plan is thorough and easy to follow, the link to the referenced article is broken.
Primary readers read books in order to practice word recognition, rhyming, and play reading games. They will "read" simple books to reinforce basic reading skills in order to create a foundation. Readers are available to print out along with free materials (songs, games, etc...).
Little learners will love being able to blend sounds together to make words. This game provides eight onsets and eight rimes that can be used to mix and match to sound out words. This activity is to be completed in pairs and is a great way to foster those emergent reading skills based on phonemic awareness.
Practice reading comprehension by completing a quiz. Readers identify important questions to ask themselves during a reading or writing assignment in order to fully grasp the concept and the task. They read to the class, complete a graphic organizer, and take a quiz aimed at enhancing reading skills.
In this reading skills worksheet, students complete a variety of reading comprehension and phonemic awareness activities: write missing consonants to complete words, dictation, picture/word match, high frequency word match, fill-in-the-blank sentences and multiple choice comprehension questions.
