Hot Snot

Book cover A grotty story of Dot smearing snot everywhere.

The teaching points in Hot Snot are Spelling (ways of spelling the /ot/ sound) and Narrative(a short story about snot!). This may not sound appealing, but it gets a humourous reaction from most adults who have read it, and the children become quite engaged. This is one of the shortest books, both in total length, and also in the amount of text on the page. So even children with a short attention span will be attracted to the little girl who starts with the signs of a runny nose, and soon finds the green substance to be spread on a number of other objects - all of which rhyme with /ot/. The LARSP analysis lists the syntactical structures in Stages II, III, and IV. Have fun reading this story.
