English – reinforce basic literacy skills
‘I have, who has?’ – English is a series of three blackline master books designed to reinforce basic literacy skills using auditory discrimination as the major focus. Using interactive game cards, students work in small groups or as a whole class to complete a chain of questions and answers, designed to take learning to the application level.
Each student maintains involvement in each game by using the supporting active listening enrichment blackline, designed to track the progress of the game.
