The Key Links Graded Reading Series which is available in English, Afrikaans and Zulu encourages explicit teaching through engaging fiction and nonfiction texts and develops learners’ language, literature and literacy strategies and skills. The series consists of 128 Foundation Phase graded readers, 36 Intermediate Phase graded readers and 24 Shared Readers or Big Books. Easy-to-access prompts focus teacher–learner discussions to maximise teaching opportunities. They are language-rich, humorous and filled with lively, rhythmical, rhyming text.
Into Connectors introduces students to the Reciprocal Reading approach in a very supportive way that is easy to implement. For many students this may be the first time they have worked independently without the teacher. The topics are specifically chosen to stimulate discussion and thinking. Recommended for Students 8+ years. Before reading, students select a coloured ‘leadership’ icon. When a student’s coloured icon appears on a spread, they become the leader of the discussion for that page. Students are provided with detailed prompts throughout the books to assist in initiating meaningful group discussion.
Flixies addresses two very important challenges in our Education System, namely, reading without comprehension and environmental issues. Seven critical Thinking Skills have been identified through which this series endeavours to teach reading comprehension in the intermediate phase.
