STELLAR is a Singaporean approach to support students develop their literacy skills and a love of reading.
In a typical STELLAR lesson the teacher introduces the story and reads to the class from a Big Book. The teacher then focused on the language items, structures and skills explicitly, including concepts of print, phonics and grammar.
Finally the teacher introduces follow up activities such as drama and art, based on the content of the story.
Here are a selection of the most popular STELLAR story books.
