TEACHER TALK gives a brief introduction and overview of each story (its characters, plot, scene and vocabulary), to aid group discussions. Located on the inside front cover of every title.
FLASHCARDS on the inside back covers provide extra learning opportunities. Included in every title at the Pre-Reading, Emergent and Early Levels.
GLOSSARIES can be found on the inside back covers of all Non-Fiction titles from Early Level 2 and above.
COLOUR CODED LEVELS allow children and teachers alike to see at a glance which level a book belongs to, making title selection and filing simple.

Theme and Character Tags: Children who meet new friends in the Emergent and Early Levels of Red Rocket are thrilled and rewarded by the opportunity to meet them again in the more challenging texts of the Fluency and Advanced Fluency levels. Themes and topics are vital too so we’ve tagged our products with this information. You can now view collections of books by simply clicking on a tag like “traditional tales” or “conservation”.
