We have created the series of 8 Fitzroy Word Skills work books precisely to meet this need. Writing goes hand in hand with reading. For each pack of 10 Readers, there is a 76-page work book providing several sheets of written activities to go with each story. The highest level of the Fitzroy Readers (51-60) require two work books, 6A and 6B.
At the early levels of the Word Skills books, there is practice writing letters, recognising different fonts, labelling pictures with known words, filling in missing letters, finding known words in puzzles, topics for discussion, and topics for creative writing. At this level, the student writes directly into the Word Skills book.
At the higher levels, there are also many grammatical points – introduced in small steps. There is also vocabulary development – synonyms, antonyms etc. There questions, using the known vocabulary, which ensure that students comprehend what they are reading. There are exercises in English idioms and in good English expression.
