Carmela is hosting a late-night 'Crop Till You Drop' session at her quaint French Quarter scrap-booking shop, Memory Mine. All the usual suspects have turned up to trim, decorate, colour, and gossip. But their all-night crop comes to a screeching halt when a neighbouring antique-shop owner winds up murdered in the alley behind the cosy store. And when Carmela and her customers become the focus of the police investigation, the scrapbooking expert realises it's her responsibility to rearrange the jumble of clues and pick out the real killer â€“ before he strikes again . . .
Oxford Literacy has been designed specifically to support guided reading in the first three years of school. The Oxford Literacy fiction and non-fiction guided reading texts recognise that a guided reading group in a 'real' classroom never has every student on the same level; therefore, the texts and supporting teaching versions allow educators to work with small groups of students across a range of levels within their stage of reading. The teaching version for each text scaffolds the educator through the guided reading session. The focus is on developing students' ability to use meaning, structure and visual information, to read the supporting visual literacy, and it also includes links to the Oxford Wordlist. For more information about the Oxford Wordlist, go to www.oup.com.au/thesuccessfulteacher or www.oxfordwordlist.com.
