40 children’s books have been selected for new starter packs which will benefit children supported by Beanstalk reading helpers in primary schools across England.
This #BeanstalkTop40 has been handpicked by children’s literacy experts including Beanstalk staff, trained reading helpers and literacy consultant Marilyn Brocklehurst – founder of The Norfolk Children’s Book Centre. The selection process involved careful consideration of the types of books Beanstalk-supported children would find fun and motivational. These books will be provided to our Beanstalk schools as part of a starter pack resource to be used by the reading helpers volunteering in that school.
Since September 2017, we have used Accelerated Reader (AR) to monitor, structure and reward children’s reading across the school. Since we introduced AR, children have responded positively to the programme and we have seen a significant increase in the children’s enthusiasm for reading, the number of books being read across the school and the pupils’ accuracy.
To find out more about the Accelerated Reader scheme, please find below some information for parents.
