Reading

                                       

Dear Children,

 

Are you in the race to be a Reading Champions winner? Which books did you read yesterday? What type of books were they? Were they Fiction (made up stories) or Non-fiction (information books)? Have you written reviews about them? Which one would you recommend to your friends and teachers to read?

 

As you read today, remember to discuss events or information in the book that you have read with your adult so you get a better understanding before writing your review. 

 

In as much as you love reading, we'll ask that you try to read and write at least 2 book reviews everyday and share with your class teacher on Seesaw.  

 

Remember:

Our Reading Champions this week would be children who write in depth and quality reviews and NOT A LOT OF REVIEWS. Good luck!

 

We've attached a Book Review template for your reference. You do not have to print the template to use for your review, try and create your own using the prompts on the template; then, ask your adult to take a picture and share on Seesaw with your class teacher.

 

Now, are you ready for another day of exciting reading?  

 

Please log into BUG CLUB ACTIVELEARN PRIMARY by clicking on the link below:

Read your available BUG CLUB BOOK and answer the comprehension questions.

 

 

Remember to use your reading skills:

 

  • Fred Talk unfamiliar words. E.g- f-r-o-g
  • Slide the syllables together. E.g fr og becomes frog.
  • Chunk new words before putting them together to read. E.g book-let becomes booklet
  • Refer to the illustrations (pictures) for clues
  • Use the Read to me function to listen to the pronunciation of difficult words.
  • Re-read words and sentences you’re unsure of to grasp the meaning.
  • Most of all, write down new vocabulary and search for their meaning in dictionaries.
  • Make sure you answer all the comprehension questions (quiz questions). This will help you to interpret the meaning of what you have read and also to practise your decoding skills.  
  • Now, write a review about your book and share with your class teacher.

 

 .......and remember, “There are many little ways to enlarge your world.  Love of books is the best of all.” – Jacqueline Kennedy
