CBeebies Summary Watch and listen as the CBeebies presenters tell a story. Often retelling traditional stories and fairytales, the presenters read aloud from a picture book. Children can sit back and listen as well as follow the pictures on screen.

English Books Michael Cunningham — By NightfallGenre: #contemporary_prose_mb Peter and Rebecca Harris: mid-forties denizens of Manhattan’s SoHo, nearing the apogee of committed careers in the arts—he a dealer, she an editor.

Decodable passages - FreeReading From FreeReading Decodable passages are short stories that can be read by a student who knows: How to sound out regular words, and The 30 irregular words taught in the Irregular Word sequence. Many decodable stories included in commercial reading programs are redundant and lack the authenticity of a real reading experience. Construct-A-Word Construct-a-Word provides a simple, engaging way for students to generate dozens of different words by first choosing an ending (for example -an, -ed, -at, -op) and then adding a beginning letter or blend. When a correct word is created, the word is stored in a Word Bank where students can read and review their words. For each ending, Construct-a-Word prompts students to create between 6 and 14 different possible words, adding an element of fun and discovery.
