Hamilton Education sells hard copy teaching resources that support Hamilton plans at very low cost. Group Readers, phonics books, number lines and 'Five Minute Fillers' can help you teach literacy and numeracy skills in your classroom.
Group Readers are short, illustrated A5 books designed to be read with 3 to 6 children working as a group. They can be used as extended texts alongside any phonics scheme or simply as a story to read in the classroom. Most have black and white illustrations that could potentially be coloured in by the children.
These books are superb for the group reading sessions required as part of the weekly teaching of reading and have been built in to the Hamilton weekly plans for each year group. They are matched to the stages of learning phonics, from basic (linked to Code-Breakers Books 1 or 2) to more advanced (linked to Code-Breakers Book 4), although they can be used outside these ranges if required.
In order to facilitate opportunities for children to follow the text in their own copies of the books, Group Readers are available to purchase cheaply at cost from Hamilton Education.
The debate of tea and coffee, written by Atiyah bin Ali and translated by Clive Holes, is a fabulous translation of a traditional Arabic dialogue poem. Stunningly illustrated, the two combatants debate their relative merits, drawing on their separate history and cultures. This book is an asset to any Y5 or Y6 classroom.
This Group Reader is available to purchase from Hamilton Education.
