This ECHO CD (Audio CD) and its associated GUIDED READER (T-34), can be used with learners of different ages and abilities. These are an ideal’ Buddy Reading’ resource. The ECHO CDs are based on 500 basewords, known as the THRASS 500, and these are listed, along with their series frequency, on the inside back cover of the associated GUIDED READER and BIG BOOK. Each ECHO CD has 16 tracks. Recorded on tracks 1-8 is the Echo Reading version of the story. Recorded on tracks 9-16 is the Team Reading version of the story. Use the Play, Repeat and Skip buttons to listen to the tracks so that your learners can read and reread the pages and stories. The main aim of the CDs in this series is to provide confidence in reading the 500 basewords. To develop storytelling skills, encourage experimentation with expression, intonation and different voices/accents. The more learners hear other people reading, especially familiar text, the more they discover that there is not just one way to tell a story.
