The accompanying scheme of work provides teachers with an additional 8 hours of teaching materials. Matching puzzles and a make and do board game will consolidate children’s ability to recognise the 68 radicals from Radical Trumps Part 1 and 2. Remaining activities such as Menu Maker and Round the Radical Phonetical World focus on developing their understanding of how radicals can give clues to the meaning and pronunciation of unseen characters.
The guide includes clear step-by-step teaching , background information for non-specialist teachers and is YCT compatible – more than 50 characters from YCT Level 1 are included.
