Many teaching assistants are involved in supporting pupils in learning to read and maintaining a positive attitude to reading. The Centre for Literacy in Primary Education (CLPE) website is a great resource for reading and reading ideas.
“The CLPE is an independent UK charity with a global reputation for the quality of our research into literacy and teaching. Our work promotes high standards in the teaching of literacy. We particularly emphasise the importance of books and literature in enabling children to become confident, happy and enthusiastic readers and writers, with all the benefits this brings.”
The website shares courses, events, projects, publications and resources related to reading. If you register on the site you can access to some free teaching and support materials focused on specific books. This week materials based around The Storm Whale, The Ice Bear and Beegu are available to download.
On The Power of Reading section of the website there are also publications, articles and research about reading as well as guidance on reading development.
You can follow CLPE on Twitter @CLPE1 and like them on Facebook here.
