The My Read at Home: New Edition reader series is designed to develop pupils’ interest in and enjoyment of literature and to enhance their fluency by promoting daily reading practice.
Each book contains 30 units. Each unit has four pages and it is intended that pupils will read one page each day (Monday to Thursday) either in school or as a homework assignment. Most topics are dealt with on a single page, though occasionally a topic is split over two pages, to be read on subsequent days.
Each page concludes with five Quick Questions to help the teacher to monitor pupils’ recall and to assess how they compare and synthesise information, thoughts and ideas. As the subject matter of many topics in My Read at Home lend themselves readily to class discussion, many topics can be used as a basis for oral language lessons.
