Fantails are a collection of book-banded books. They have carefully controlled levels according to a students reading age. Each collection of books is set at foundation, emergent, early or fluency levels and can be used alongside other popular reading schemes. With Blue banded readers, children will be gaining more confidence in reading longer and more varied sentences, managing a greater variety of genre. They will be self-correcting more rapidly, solving new words using their understanding of the text and re-reading to enhance phrasing and clarify meanings. Books within this band have a greater variation in sentence patterns and content; stories will have more events and there will be more lines of text on a page. Includes 8 books at each band, 16 pages. Both fiction and non-fiction strands are available.
