Why another reading scheme?

STAR TRACK is for pupils who have not gained any skills from a random exposure to text and need a guided introduction to the rules of literacy.

STAR TRACK'S structured worksheets and stories introduce the pupil to only one phonic element at a time.

STAR TRACK builds skills cumulatively, and confidence is established because the pupil is never asked to read what he has not been taught.

STAR TRACK'S photocopiable masters provide material for class work, homework, easy assessment and record-keeping.

STAR TRACK provides worksheets and stories for the famous "exceptions" of English, which are easily tackled once the regular phonic rules have been learnt. Further copies of each of the tracks may be purchased in packs of ten.
