I know a lot of teachers love reading to their classes and providing interesting comprehension activities for them. Here are some links to teacher’s resources from New Zealand and Australian publishers that can use with your classes:
- Random House New Zealand
- Penguin New Zealand
- Walker Books Australia and New Zealand
- Allen and Unwin
- Hardie Grant Egmont (Australia)
- Text Publishing (Australia)
Random House New Zealand also has a NCEA page on their website. They have organised some of their titles into categories that relate to NCEA Wider Reading. It’s definitely worth checking out for secondary teachers.
What Lies Beneath Exhibition – Maria Gill has created a wonderful teacher’s resource for the What Lies Beneath Exhibition, an exhibition at the National Library that ‘reveals the inspirations, the crafting, and background work that goes into making picture books and novels for New Zealand Children.’ You can download the resource here – http://www.mariagill.co.nz/forteachers.php
If you’re unsure who publishes a particular book and you want to find the teaching resources, please contact me and I’ll point you in the right direction.
