30 Additional non-fiction readers plus 3 Teacher's Resources, in 3 Stages, to follow the structure and style of the parent series, Jumpstart. Its purpose is to provide non-fiction, easy-read books for the primary reading market as well as to add more breadth to each stage of Jumpstart.
Jumpstart Extra Stage A provides ten non-fiction books to complement and extend Jumpstart Stage 1 readers.
Every Jumpstart Extra title links thematically to a core book in Jumpstart and repeats the core book's high frequency vocabulary.
Less confident readers are progressively familiarized with non-fiction text features such as captions, diagrams, maps, indexes and glossaries.
No new strategies are introduced and new vocabulary is minimal, allowing children increased opportunities to succeed.
