Yesterday our class celebrated . To do this, most of us bought books from home. The books we bought in were "old favourites" - the ones we've read over and over. We also bought our favourite novels and shared either an excerpt or gave an overview of the plot. We talked about how family memories of reading books also makes them special.
We now all have several books that we're wanting to read. Books become even more exciting when we see how much enjoyment others have got from them.
Miss McLeod read the Mudmen chapter from Andy Griffith's book, Just Crazy. It was hilarious with lots of crack-up moments - the reader had to work hard to read on past her laughter at times.
We then got into pairs and started rehearsing poems to read to the class. Our task is to read/recite the poem expressively and with 'drama' in our voices. Stay tuned ... we may post a video or two of this.
What are your favourite books and why do you like them?
Do you have any special 'book' or 'reading' memories?
