Super focused READERS!

We have had some super focused readers in Room 18 this week!

Check out the King Shrimps, who started reading a short novel on the tragedy of Mount Vesuvius this week. They spent 30 minutes discussing everything they had read so far and the impact the volcano eruption would have on the community. They had some outstanding ideas about what they would have done differently and what they would do to help after the eruption.

Check out the Hammerhead Sharks, who are working hard to run their own group reading sessions using the 5 Bits. They are working to become super self managing learners! Great work Hammerhead Sharks, keep it up!

Well done to everyone on their FABULOUS costumes today! We had such a great turn out of wonderful and varied characters, from Geronimo Stilton, to Slinky Malinky, to Pippi Longstockings.

We had a lot of fun introducing ourselves and the book we are from, and we also loved showing the rest of the school our costumes during the Parade.

Congratulations to our class winners for their fantastic costumes, great character acting and excellent character selection!

Book Fair Visit

Today we went to the INCREDIBLE Scholastic Book Fair. It was filled with many wonderful new and exciting books.

We all wrote our own wishlists of books and other items that we think we would like to save up our money to buy.

Be sure to visit the fair between 2.45pm and 3.30pm every afternoon for some great deals!

Also be sure to check out the AMAZING tent that Room 18 built for the display.
