TalkingPen KS2 Literacy Toolkit, is a groundbreaking audio-visual powerhouse full of ideas and resources for creative writing. The Toolkit with its highly visual charts, planning frames and task cards, has unique TalkingPen interactivity to engage and inspire all children to become storytellers.
The TalkingPEN allows for minimal text on the printed page, but with the extensive teaching content that can be heard in English and other languages, children can access guides and tips to help them gain confidence in planning and writing their own stories. Interactive hotspots act as prompts and powerful memory-joggers for pupils during individual and group work. Pupils will find the interactive visual and aural content inspiring, accessible and fun. Stimulating activities extend vocabulary and improve language skills.
Matched to the KS2 curriculum, the Literacy Toolkit consists of:
• a Story Mountain
• a Book Review Guide
• 36 Task Cards for fiction analysis and interpretation • 6 Non-Fiction Genre Charts and Planning Frames
• an Analysis tool of KS2 texts: 6 books are included with your pack. Yeh-Hsien; Hansel and Gretel; Ali Baba; Jill and the Beanstalk; Ellie’s Secret Diary & Journey through Islamic Art. Listen to the stories using the PENpal and analyse the text incorporating detailed guidance from the Story Mountain poster.
The multimodal approach, together with the kinaesthetic nature of the resources, suits different learning styles. Each literacy resource has differentiation at two levels to support pupils over a wide range of ability.
