In 4B, the student participate in Reader’s Workshop each day.
Part of Reader’s Workshop involves independent reading. During independent reading, students spend time practising reading strategies with a “good fit” book of their choice.
We have also read several class novels this year and we’ve also read plenty of mentor texts during writing. A mentor text helps us to to see what good writers do to create interesting stories. And of course, we have also read many picture story books during our weekly library sessions.
Miss Jordan loves to read and usually has a novel on the go at home. She also enjoys picture story books, particularly those with a message. Her favourite picture story book this year was The Stone Lion by Margaret Wild.
Here is a YouTube reading of the book. Hopefully you enjoy it as much as Miss Jordan and 4B did!
