As part of our Writers’ Workshop, we said the phrase “It’s in my lunchbox!” We could choose which way to say it: with anger, sadness, surprise, boredom, happiness, puzzlement. We then used our experience to write quality sentences with lots of detail.

Thank you Hannah for your excellent video camera work.

Can you guess which way the actors are saying their sentence? Which emotion are they expressing?

Ava participated in a very successful reading conference last week. Her reading goal was Comprehension, and she was practising the strategy of ‘Make a picture in your head.’ We used the Elizabeth Honey poem ‘Sally’s Secrets’. This video demonstrates how Ava and Ms Lockyer made pictures in their head after reading the poem, to help understand what the poem is about.

Thank you Hannah for your excellent video camera work.

In your comment, give Ava some feedback about her reading progress, or let us know how you have used the strategy.
