Purple Mash offers Serial Mash, which is your very own library at school and home. With over 100 books for children aged 5 - 11, Serial Mash offers the opportunity to carry on your reading program with your students regardless of their home environment and support resources. Utilizing technologies like this enables all students to access quality reading experiences, and the books can be printed to enable reading in a non-digital way too. With our teaching sometimes needing to be more online-based and distance learning sometimes the only option, Serial Mash is the perfect way of ensuring accessibility of reading material to all your students.

The love of reading is one of the most important life 'skills/lessons' we can foster in our students. A book has the ability to transport us to another place and let us experience a reality unlike our own. It helps us develop the ability to empathize with others and gives us the opportunity to access experiences we might not otherwise have. On a more practical level, practicing reading makes the child more proficient at the skill thereby allowing the child access to more advanced resources and a greater chance of success across all learning areas.

There always has to be reading with intention or meaning, even if the intention is to foster the love of reading. A purpose behind the task. Whether it is practicing the proper phonetic pronunciation or reading to grasp a new concept or knowledge on a subject, reading with meaning is essential. That is why Serial Mash includes a host of resources along with the books. Each book chapter is complemented by a host of printable resources for the whole class, group or individual use. Comprehension quizzes, grammar worksheets, sequencing activities, open-ended questions and extended writing tasks are provided - all in one place.

There are stories about almost everything – from volcanoes and community kitchens to magical creatures and children who gain strange powers. This is the ideal tool to use to get your students reading - with meaning and enjoyment! If you need further information or need training on how to get the best out of this resource please EMAIL us.
