On Fridays during the month of March English Class pupils enjoy a lesson of shared reading. Pupils pair off and take turns reading to one another. It is a great opportunity for the younger pupils to practice their reading skills and a wonderful chance to be supportive for the older ones. After the lesson the pupils enjoy lunch with one another so they can continue talking about what they were reading.
After the first week of Book Month the shelves in the book nook are filling up nicely. Pupils are making every effort to read at least twenty minutes per day. Go to the Art Page to see some reading related art done by the second graders.
