Primary Catch Up® Reading Resources
Catch Up® Literacy is a structured intervention programme for struggling readers who benefit from one-to-one support and a personalised programme of learning grounded in rigorous academic research. The intervention which consists of two 15 minute sessions per week with a teacher or teaching assistant (trained by Catch Up®) begins with a formative and diagnostic assessment that gives the teacher the appropriate focus for teaching the learner (a book of the appropriate level of difficulty).
Real Books Levelled for the Catch Up® Literacy Programme
Two 15 minute sessions a week using levelled books includes time for preparation before reading the text, reading and discussing the text and linked writing activities to finish, based upon observed miscues and spelling.
In all, statistics and data collected and presented by Catch Up® shows that children on the Catch Up® Literacy programme who were reading below their chronological age made double the reading age gain than struggling readers without this intervention. Learners (aged 6-14) who received support for 7 months achieved an average Reading Age gain of 19 months.
Catch Up® has levelled over 8,000 books into 12 gradually increasing levels of difficulty. We are proud to have had our books levelled by Catch Up® and used by practitioners delivering the Catch Up® Literacy intervention. Badger has 3 easy-to-order collections of Catch Up® levelled books from Catch Up® Levels 3-7, Catch Up® Levels 8-9 and Catch Up® Levels 10-12.
