Reading Challenge

Reading Challenge

I have used this with infant classes from Reception to Year 2, mostly trying to encourage reluctant readers to still read at home. Even if it was only a couple of pages a night they would still be working their way towards a bronze, silver or gold certificate. This also praises and recognises those children who read every night at home. The challenge is for 21 days including the weekends, we ran the challenge to coincide with World Book Day and presented the certificates in an assembly to all children who took part. We did emphasis to the children that the challenge is in regards to their own reading, trying to increase how often they read at home and not a competition with the rest of the class. Included in the resources - a record chart and 10 copies of each certificate.

Journey to Jo'burg Reading Comprehension (after chapter 7 - Mma)

Journey to Jo'burg Reading Comprehension (after chapter 7 - Mma)

Comprehension questions based on this excellent story which I read to my Year 4 children. It raised a lot of questions, as a good book should. This checked their understanding of the book so far and extended the more able, asking them to think about what is happening in the story. Word format for easy editing to your school style or for copying into another format.

March - Book Three

March - Book Three

This is the third book in the trilogy called March – Book Three. This graphic novel continues the struggle of African-Americans during the Civil Rights Movement. The focus of this novel is the fight for the right for African-American to register and vote in southern states. John Lewis is the chairman of one minority group called the SNCC, but he also joins the minority group Martin Luther King Jr. is affiliated with to pursue equal rights. John Lewis tells the movements’ stories with truth, frustration, grace, and thankfulness. Both the words and the graphic pictures tell and show students every powerful story in this time period of the pursuit of justice to obtain the right for African-Americans to vote. I have added some sites and videos for students to see to help clarify the events explained in the book. I have also integrated writing and speech assignments into this one giant social studies’ period of time.
