Time To Read And Write Series (6-9 years) Complete series of books 1-4)

Book 1: Let’s Imagine And Write A Story

A collection of traditional tales for your child to read and then write their own version. Encourage them to use their imagination and to reinvent the story. For example, they could alter the plot and introduce a new ending. Trialled by children of 6-9 years in our tutorial classes, we believe that if we saturate young children with good ideas and vocabulary, they will learn to love writing. We recommend that you work through the book with younger children. Discuss the characters and where the story takes place; talk about how the story will begin; how it will continue; how it will build up to the most exciting part and how it will end. Older children will be able to work through the book themselves.

Book 2: Time To Write Letters And Facts

A lively collection of ideas to improve your child’s writing. He or she will learn to set out a letter and to write using facts and opinions.
This book is a starting point to get your child to enjoy writing. All the ideas have been trialled in tutorial classes, with children of 6-9 years. For younger children, we advise that the adult works through the book with the child. Older children, who are fluent readers, will have fun completing the book themselves.

If we saturate our children with good ideas and vocabulary in the early years, we can assist them in their writing and build on the work they do at school.

Book 3: Time To Write A Diary

This lively workbook encourages children, of 6-9 years, to write down their own ideas in the form of an informal diary. Writing a diary or ‘news’ about personal experiences, in your own words, is a wonderful way to get your child writing freely. Your child will also have a record of what he or she has done, which will be fun to read in the future. A real child’s diary has been included, written by a 7 year old, to inspire young writers to record even the smallest details of their daily life. There are also helpful hints on building up sentences to improve writing techniques.

Book 4: Let’s Practise Our Reading Comprehension

A collection of interesting articles to help your child practise essential reading comprehension skills. Each passage contains a series of questions, which
requires the child to retrieve facts and explain information from texts… or to offer ideas as to what the writer is implying. Every passage contains (vocabulary) word exercises, encouraging the child to search for words or phrases with the same meaning. This book has been trialled by children of 6-9 years and has proved to be a valuable resource, that helps a child prepare for comprehension papers later on e.g. for 11+ examinations.

Guinea Pig Education

GUINEA PIG EDUCATION HOW IT STARTED…

In 1990, Sally, a classroom teacher of thirty years experience, started a private tuition business – teaching children, of all abilities, one to one.

She felt there was insufficient material on the market, to suit the needs of individual pupils and began writing her own schemes of work.

In 2004, these schemes were developed into text books and sold to clients of GPE tuition and local parents.

Over the years the Guinea Pig range has grown considerably. Today, our 75 plus books and 500 plus teaching resources are sold in retail stores, educational establishments and online, both in print format and digitally across the globe. We are absolutely delighted to have been able to encourage and inspire so many children across the world to love learning. It is our absolute honour and privilege.

WE ARE PASSIONATE ABOUT INSPIRING ALL CHILDREN TO LOVE LEARNING.

GUINEA PIG EDUCATION Creative Writing Books

Our creative writing books are designed to help children express their ideas; to make their imagination run wild; and to encourage them to write.

We believe in saturating even the most reluctant writers (whose minds go blank) with ideas and good vocabulary.

Our resources are successful because they employ the same unique strategies that are used in Sally Anne’s one-to-one private lessons.

Working through our books is like have a private tutor at your side, which is why they are so successful at building confidence and motivating students of all ages.

GUINEA PIG EDUCATION Phonic Reading Materials

An eight year old boy, called William, is the reason the Guinea Pig reading scheme exists. He was a very reluctant reader, who had barely made a start in acquiring literacy, but with our scheme he had fluency in nine months.

Our Learn To Read With Phonics reading scheme is a fast, fun way to teach a child to learn to read, in only 8 books. It uses an intensive course of systematic phonics.

It has helped hundreds of struggling readers become fluent in a few months.
