READING

This term everyone in the class will make a PhotoStory of themselves reading a book as we are working on fluency and expression while we read. This requires knowing the story really well and this means using the 3 P's. Practise, practise, practise and read the same book more than once!

Copyright does not allow us to copy a full book in any way with the exception of the Learning Media publications. We have only recorded a chapter of chapter books like these ones.
