    Book details

Reading Explorers Year 3 is a forward thinking resource, based on a practical, skills-based approach to guided reading. The series covers Year 2 to 6 and provides teachers with a wide variety of genres, both fiction and non-fiction, which will allow children to access, interpret and understand what they are reading. Each book contains 36 lesson plans, one of which using the original text of a significant author. Also included with the book is a CD with differentiated activities at three level of abilities.

Reading Explorers by Hopscotch are a super time saving series of books aimed at providing quality reading resources within the primary school classroom. We have read 2,3 and 4 tough the series is also available for years 5 and 6, following the same format. Each books comes complete with text and lesson plan. The text is for children of average ability within the year group based on national average. The lesson is split into three sections: Warm up questions, main questions and evaluative questions along with suggested timings for each part of the session. Lesson plans also include key skills or question types and essential vocabulary. Included in each book is a helpful five staged helping hand approach to each session along with suggested resources. The CD provides differentiated texts for higher and lower ability within your classroom. We at Top Class Primary loved these resources and can see how it would cut down on planning time for guided reading sessions. --Top Class Primary magazine

  • By Byczok on 13 May 2017

    Good ideas and have used successfully in my Year 4 class.

  • By Callum.L on 27 July 2017

    Helpful for year 3 teachers

  • By Emma on 3 February 2016

    Fanstatic for guided reading sessions and the disc has differentiated activities, a great resource with minimal preparation which helps you focus on your groups. Great investment

    The kindle version of this book is not substantially cheaper than the paper one. However, the resource text images are hopelessly small on the kindle even when increased to the maximum size. This is a serious flaw and will make them impractical for use in class. The paper book also comes with a cd rom, which, of course, is not included with the kindle. Would recommend the book in paper form, but not the kindle version.

    Great book with differentiated texts on CD ROM. Engaging texts and good range of questions. Talks you through explorers program at start of book.

    This is a wonderful resource for busy teachers and means that you don't have to spend hours looking for guided reading texts. It includes most of the genres covered in year 3. Every text comes in three (slightly) different ability levels. One thing that would improve it would be if the questions were linked to the APP assessment foci. But overall, a very useful resource.

    This has saved me hours and hours, I love these texts, they are challenging and interesting enough to have a great discussion around them and the ready made questions have saved me hours of planning time!!
