Kayden enjoys ” The Grinch” December 11th

Kayden J in Year 3 has enjoyed sharing Christmas picture books from the displays around school. His favourite so far is How the Grinch Stole Christmas by Dr Seuss.

Kayden says that he likes this because he has seen the film.

He comments on the pictures demonstrating his understanding of the story. Having read it together on a couple of occasions he is already beginning to join in with the text where it is becoming familiar.

I am hoping that Kayden will pick out a few more festive picture books to listen to over the next ten days. Although I feel that The Grinch will remain his favourite!

8/11/17 Layla enjoys reading

Layla in Year 3 has been using pictures and beginning sounds to help herself work out unknown words in her reading book.

She is determined to work out the words on her own and only asks for help if she is stuck. She is very proud of being able to read many of the stories without much help.

Layla now enjoys stories and looks carefully when we choose a new book.

She recognises many of the tricky words, that she has learnt, within the text.

We play games to help her retain words learnt and to build her sight vocabulary.  Continue reading

Hmm….

Kayden in Year 3 has been enjoying Hmm… by Colin McNaughton this week. We talked about all the jobs that Mr Wolf could do and Kayden told me he would like to be a cook. Kayden helped me to read the story today and recognised some of the tricky words he’s been learning. We were helped by the repetitive part of the text.

WC 16th May. Room on the Broom

Layla achieved her target. She chose one of her favourite picture books for me to read to her. As I read Layla pointed to the text moving her finger left to right and page to page. She also joined in with some of the repetitive lines adding actions for words such as "whoosh"! So pleased with Layla. She is now enjoying sharing stories more and more.
