  11. Dear Ms Henderson and 5H,

    I am a teacher in Beijing, China. I teach at a PYP international school, which has students from all over the world. I am originally from Sydney, Australia.

    I am commenting on your (great!) blog because I really love your Concept Driven Reading Cards. I am the boss of literacy at my school and I wonder if you would share these cards with me. I think my students would become much better thinkers if they used these cards during reading groups.

    Can you tell me if there’s a way I can download your cards?
    I’ll be sure to write again to let you know how they work in our school. Perhaps we could even have a Skype chat where we analyse the same text?

    Keep up the wonderful work, 5H. You have a great teacher!

    • Hi Ms O’Dwyer,

      Thank you very much for your kind words. You can now download the reading cards from the OCC. I have titled them, “Concept Driven Reading”.

      I would love to hear how they work at your school. A shared analysis over Skype is a great idea. I’m sure all students would gain a lot from the experience.

      Let me know if you have any trouble downloading the cards.

      Mrs Henderson

  12. Thanks Mrs Henderson!

    I’ve been on the OCC website but the field where I expect the file to be, appears blank. I can’t work out how to download these great resources. Perhaps I’m doing something silly! Any tips?

    Thanks so much for your time.

    • Hi Shannon,

      Sorry about that. I was having some trouble uploading the document to the OCC. I have finally succeeded though. It is quite large, so might take a little while to download.

      Please let me know how you go.
