I spotted that we had missed “World Read aloud Day.” However when we met at Parent/Teacher/Student meetings during the week, we reminded everyone that our nightly reading is the most important homework Year Two students need to do. It has been great to see Reading Journals being filled in and brought to school once a week. Reading aloud, listening to reading and reading on your own, are all so important in helping you to become OUT OF THIS WORLD readers (and thinkers and writers).
It should be clear now why we want Year Two students to build their reading stamina.
