Supporting the renewed Primary Framework or literacy, the Schofield & Sims My Word Book promotes differentiation and personalised learning, boosts children's pride in their reading skills and help schools to ensure effective home-school communication. Space is provided for the teacher to note the child's specific targets in writing, and any other adult working with the child may note the child's progress towards them. My word book for Key Stage 1 encourages children to learn new words and ensure that they know how to spell them correctly for use in their own writing. All the words included in the book may be used to compile checklists for monitoring development of the child's spelling skills. It contains: about 800 words arranged alphabetically - with suffixes shown in red, over 300 further words arranged by word type of theme - including 'Feelings words' and 'Story words', 45 high-frequency words that children are likely to use daily and spaces for children to add their own and illustrations that act as attractive reminders of word meanings.
