Each Text Card provides an engaging, levelled and illustrated text sample that is supported by: three activity cards, five photocopiable worksheets and a Graphic Organiser. The lessons on the Activity Cards are divided as follows:

Language Features – this card shows a shorter extract of the text and enables the students to examine the role and purpose of grammar at the word, sentence and whole text level.
Activity Card – focuses on how the text meets the needs of purpose and audience, and the structural components of the text such as its layout and organisation, vocabulary, grammar and punctuation.
Writing Card – provides a number of different tasks for students to work on as an individual or with a partner. This may involve them writing a section of text or a whole text.

All of the coloured pages in the books are designed to be removed and laminated to provide a durable classroom resource that can be used for many years.
