The boys and girls have made an amazing start learning the routines for independent reading. They are up to 15 minutes of uninterrupted reading daily. After reading, the students have an opportunity to share something about their book with a classmate. We have begun to discuss different genres using these posters. Have a look and talk to your child about genres they enjoy reading. I have also been reading aloud the short chapter book Freckle Juice by one of my favourite authors, Judy Blume. Here are some questions to ask your child about the book:
What happened at the beginning?
Who are the characters?
Where does the story take place?
What is the problem in the story?
What is your favourite part so far? Why?
