An easy reader - The Bike - Teaching reading to EAL students

An easy reader - The Bike - Teaching reading to EAL students

The Bike is a short book written to teach reading to older EAL students who are new to English. The book uses CVC words, sight words and the first 100/200 words list. This will help to develop phonics and vocabulary. This may be particularly useful for students who have had little or no formal education in their home country, and for those who are new to English. Comprehension activities are provided to help with grammar and understanding. It is aimed at secondary age pupils but may be suitable for KS2. This is suitable for: • EAL students (new to English, early stage) • Late arrivals in KS4 • Students with SEN may also find it more accessible.
