Reading Groups

Reading groups with Ms Mirabella. When we get there we read a book as a class and then CAFÉ read for 20 minutes. Then we do things like; listen to reading, book club, and teacher group and literacy circles. I find Reading groups really fun!

Reading groups with Mrs Kelly and Mrs Royal. In reading groups, With Mrs Kelly and Mrs Royal we read a book called The Lost Thing and we watched the movie of it. We drew lost things and coloured them in and cut them out.

    Hi Billy here,

    Hi everyone,

    I like visualising and working in the teacher group with Mrs. Kelly and Mrs Royal. I also like reading to self and reading to someone. I like Listen to reading and reciprocal reading. I liked making my own lost thing. I made a mermaid with a T.V head and 10 tales. My favourite activity was reading The Three Rapunzels. It was about three friends competing to be Rapunzel. In the end they all got to be Rapunzel. I liked it because it was interesting for me and I realised that it had a great meaning that was to never fight over something silly or something as little as being Rapunzel with your friends.

    Bye from Monet

    I am very happy with Monet’s enthusiastic approach to all types of literacy. She absolutely loves reading which is fantastic as it is the gateway to learning.

    My boy Flynn is really enjoying all the fun stuff he’s been learning about at school. He’s been telling me about all the cool things he has been doing in religion and the stuff he’s been learning this term.

    Keep up the good work 3/4’s.

    I enjoyed being in the reading groups when we did some visualizing on Sophie Scott Goes South and we wrote and drew a picture of what we were thinking in our book.

    Hi It’s Keisha here,
    Reading groups look like they are working well. I like literacy circles too. In my reading group my favourite text in literacy circles is called” Ellie and the magic computer”. My favourite Non- Fiction text wold be Sleeping Giant. Sleeping giant is about a volcano that can melt your skin if you get to get too close to it, but the volcano is dormant now. Some other texts I have read are The story of salt, Mighty Emperor, Man of steel, Firetown, and more. Last term my Reading group was focusing on Margret Wild books. She writes books about love, friendship, and death. This term my Reading group is reading about natural disasters. The first book we read this term was called” Cyclone”. Cyclone was about the big Cyclone in Queensland and that cyclone caused so many problems around Queensland. I am in Mr Mill’s Reading group. We have reading first thing in the morning.

    It is absolutely wonderful to hear about all the enrichment and knowledge building that the reading groups are providing. Discussion and sharing feedback provokes greater interest and encourages wider reading and learning! Keep up the great work 3/4s. Look forward to seeing more updates on this blog…Happy reading 🙂

    It’s great to hear that the reading groups make a difference to a child’s learning abilities. Hayley’s reading has improved immensely over time and to hear about the different topics she has learnt tells me that she enjoys learning.
    Well done to all 3/4AM students,
