Great teaching resource!


I used the stories in this book to engage my year 6/7 composite English class. We enjoyed the stories and the kids related to the characters well. These stories are perfect for introducing critical reading skills, using prediction, questioning, summarising, visualising and creative writing. I also had students use the stories for creative writing exercises, eg. write an alternative ending, re-write the story from the crash from the pilot's perspective etc. It's a perfect book for teachers and young readers to access and explore literacy.
