Great teacher resource!

I’m very grateful to the kind person who shared the following link via the OZTL site. I’ve not had a proper play with it yet but the resources for teachers would appear to be linked to the Australian curriculum and very useful. I’d encourage you to have a look for yourselves. http://readingaustralia.com.au/

Picture Book Month

November 3, 2014 by · No Comments · Uncategorized

November has been set aside as Picture Book month. We would love to see each class on Campus reading a picture book each day for the remainder of this month and finishing off with a class vote for their favourite picture book. This could involve each child bringing in their favourite picture book of all time to share with the class. Alternatively, the teacher could choose a cross section of picture books to share. Upper primary classes may choose to look at some  titles more suited to older students and others to Junior Primary students.

I would be very happy to create some bulk loans for classes wishing to be involved. Please just let me know if there are particular themes, authors or genres you would like to share.

Barbara Braxton has a great blog on which she lists various sites each pertaining to the “best” picture books of all times! You can find this at http://thebottomshelf.edublogs.org/best-of-the-best/

Thanks to Mrs Dickson for putting up our annual Remembrance Day display. We would love to include any student work related to this special event and invite children to  write some  acrostic poems on this theme. Sheets on which these can be presented are available in the library and may be completed at lunch times. Thanks is advance!

Year 7 Haiku

Beauties of Creation on PhotoPeach

These haiku were written by some Year 7 students. They have attempted to follow the traditional 5-7-5 syllable structure and matched their writing to some amazing photos. We hope you will enjoy them.
