Read at Home: Level 4a: Looking After Gran by Roderick Hunt
Gran is meant to look after Floppy, but Floppy ends up looking after Gran. "Read at Home" is a new series designed for young, beginner readers. It features all the popular Oxford Reading Tree characters in 12 exciting stories specially written for parents to support their children's reading at home. These entertaining stories, with real life and fantasy adventures, are carefully graded across 4 levels, and contain built-in progression and vocabulary repetition throughout. "Looking After Gran" is Level 4a for children building confidence in reading - those children who can recognize 30-50 words by sight, can read harder sentences, with less support, and can use sounds to help make words. The story is written with simple but more varied sentence structure and vocabulary with three to four sentences per page. Level 4 corresponds roughly to ORT stage 4-5.
