Each activity is designed to be open ended to cater for differing ability levels – for younger children I would begin with scribing the child’s response, to having the child trace over or experiment with writing, followed by encouraging early writers to sound out independently or with support. I also like to enlarge some activity pages to A3 size when printing for younger children. My kids love this book and love these resources!

Relief and substitute teachers This pack is a great 'pick up and go' resource to have for a sub tub or relief teacher emergency pack.
