Starting tomorrow we are going to be having a new reading schedule from the time the students arrive from 8:15am onwards. This will run for 15-20 minutes. This will be called BOOKWORMS.
There will be 4 scheduled activities and students will do one of these on Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday and Friday. We will leave Monday as a free choice, catch up with friends and chat morning.
The 4 activities will be:
- Change your home reader and show Miss Hayley your home reading folder
- Work on Raz Kids or another reading app on ipad
- Read in the Library Corner
- Drawing and colouring (This is very popular in our classroom so we are leaving that as a morning choice.)
This means that on your child’s Home Reader Change day they will choose 5-6 books to keep at home for the week and only need to bring their Home Reader Folder on that day. I have told the students their day, but here it is if they forgot.
Tuesday – Charlie, Nakia, Lilah, Rackie
Wednesday – Henry, Joanna, Sarah, Paul
Thursday – Sunny, Noah, Scarlett
Friday – Chiu, Holly, Marina, Oliver
During this change over week, students are welcome to change their book daily until their Home Reader Change Day comes up.
I will be encouraging the students to come into the room, say hello to me and then use their skills to identify what they are doing on that day and go to that spot. Now that we have all settled in to 1HN, we are aiming to get some independence and more reading time for students with this change.
Please let me know if you have any questions or require more information.
Thank you for your ongoing support.
