Teacher Support

Teacher Notes

Springboard provides comprehensive teacher support for each guided reading book from Beginning–6.
The Beginning–3 support provides explicit guided-reading notes that focus on the development of high-frequency words, phonics, decoding and reading strategies. Skills worksheets are also included.
For Springboard 4–6, the notes include quick and easy guided-reading, and text type and multiple intelligence activities.

Multiple Intelligences Worksheets

Worksheet activities for each Beginning–3 title encourage students to respond to the text using different forms of intelligence.

Benchmark Cards

Fiction and nonfiction 'unseen texts' are provided for Reading Recovery levels 1–30. Records of Reading Behaviour forms support the cards.

Response Cards

A variety of independent skill-based literacy activities reinforce and consolidate skills introduced in guided-reading sessions.
