I have set up this website to share ideas and resources and to provide what I trust will be useful information for teachers. I have seen some brilliant work in classrooms and this is where I can share it with you in the gallery section.
Check out the resources section for downloadable graphic organisers, templates and classrooms signs. Click on links for a collection of great websites that support reading activities, Readers’ Theatre, Three Level Guides, reading comprehension strategies and classroom environment and display. There is also information on my books and where to buy them, plus information on workshops and options for school based professional development.
Please feel free to contact me with your thoughts and ideas.
