We have been working on reading fluently. Fluent readers read smoothly in phrases, use expression and put on character voices for different characters. We have been reading the story Russell the Sheep in class and we decided to make a video of us reading the story.
You can check it out here and see how we went with reading fluently.
Today we were practicing reading in phrases. It was lots of fun, especially when we got to turn books in to songs. When we sing, we sing in phrases so we thought it would be fun to try and sing our books to help us with phrasing. Some people were brave enough to share their books with the class and have let Miss Symons take a video of them to share with you all. Enjoy!
Some students forgot to bring their library bags today so if they would like to borrow books for the holidays, they can bring their library bag to school tomorrow and they will have a chance to borrow.
Today in spelling we learnt about compound words. Compound words are when you take 2 words and put them together to make 1 word. Here’s a video you can watch and sing along to to help you learn some compound words.
I would like everyone to share a compound word you know in the comments below. Let’s see how many compound words we can think of!!!!
Today we had our Book Week dress up day. It was great to see everyone dressed up as their favourite book character. To start off the day we had a fashion parade where the whole school got to show off their costumes. Here are some pictures of us all. Can you guess which book characters we are?
