In class time, during Book Week, pairs of children in the older year levels will read with a pair of buddies from a younger class.
Year 5 with Year 2
Year 4 with Year 1
Year 3 with Prep
Each year it is such a positive and enriching time together for the children that we love to take the opportunity to do it again. The older children have chosen two titles from the shortlisted books of previous years. They will read with their younger buddies and explore what connections the story sparks within each reader eg:
Text to text - " This reminds me of another story..."
Text to self - "I understand how that character feels because..."
Text to world - "That situation is similar to what has been on the news..."
Can you predict what will happen next?
That little boy's lip is quivering and he's all by himself. What can you infer from that?
Once buddy time has occurred, go to each class page to see photos of class reading buddies.
