  • Literacy Book

Key features

  • Provides extra reading and writing practice.
  • Each four-page unit provides practice of identifying, producing, reading and writing the sound-spelling patterns, first in isolation and then in words and short texts. The texts include rhymes, simple stories and non-fiction texts.
  • The Literacy Book now supports Show and Tell across all levels.
  • Level 1: introduces the letters and sounds of the alphabet.
  • Level 2: reviews the alphabet.
  • Level 3: builds on previous knowledge and covers common vowel sounds and spellings.
  • The Literacy Book is best used before the Say it with me lesson so that students have phonics practice little and often.


Show and Tell recognizes that young learners need preparation for a world in which 21st-century skills such as communication, critical thinking, creativity and collaboration will form a vital part of their future.

The tried and trusted Show and Tell methodology prepares students for school readiness and future success. Different learning styles are accommodated by the great variety of activities and children are able to produce language at different levels according to their ability.

The early literacy material contains stories that can be read and re-read for pleasure, activities to develop early reading and writing skills, and a systematic phonics syllabus. The development of fine motor skills is gradual and flexible, in keeping with the differing needs of individual children. The units contain stories, games, songs and chants, craftwork, and simple experiments. Problem-solving activities encourage children to think critically and creatively. Values lessons teach children how to behave both inside and outside the classroom. Stories, hand-eye coordination practice and letter formation activities lead to reading and writing simple sentences. The games promote collaboration and opportunities for natural peer-to-peer communication.

The material is divided into nine thematic units, each posing the Big Question. The question is explored in different ways to build and broaden children's understanding, culminating in a project that integrates their learning and provides a real sense of achievement.
