Above the Clouds! is the first of two readers in Stage Four of the Rainbow English Programme. Each reader contains 20 extracts from published children’s literature, 10 factual pieces of writing and 10 poems.
Each extract and fact piece is followed by a series of activities comprising:comprehension, vocabulary, word study/phonics, grammar, punctuation and the writing process.
Above the Clouds! is accompanied by a ground-breaking Portfolio Book that reinforces the comprehension, vocabulary, word study/phonics, grammar/punctuation covered in the core book.
A unique feature of the Portfolio Book is that it covers all the writing genres, as required by the PDST, and is a clear record of the student’s work for the year.
