Reading stories and passages
Hello  colleagues
I teach English as a second additional language in Grade 4 - 6 ( 8 - 12 years old boys and girls). Most fo these kids have reading problems and they ere not really interested in reading. Will you please send me exciting reading materials which will motivate these kids to read.  And they only learnt and studied English in Grade 3, they only did simple basic English in Grade R - 2. So, their reading and writing in Grade 4 is poor. Most importantlyThe kids are Black South African who  only read and speak in English at school. Some of you guys have already sent me materials and I only use them with kids who can read well
Can you help!!!!!!!!
