APPLES discussing their book and making predictions.
Wow! Mondays are so much fun with Book Club to end the day! I heard so many good readers and such good discussions as I moved around the different groups this week.
ORANGES contributed actively to the discussion.
Book Club is where you all get to climb inside the writer’s head and look at Who? What? Where? Why? When? and How? things happen in the text.
BANANAS had a good session and were able to SUMMARISE the text well.
Your team leaders have been doing a terrific job helping you to explore RIGHT THERE questions, THINK AND SEARCH questions and ON YOUR OWN questions to make meaning of what you are reading.
PEARS were very thoughtful as they talked about their text this week!
GRAPES are reading some challenging texts and they loved the spies this week.
Every single student was engaged in their learning and for that I thank our wonderful parent volunteers who have been coming in each week! Your help and support has made an enormous difference to us in Room 6 so thank you for your time and your caring and helpful personalities! 🙂
I particularly LOVE the way all of you are able to share with the whole class some of the READING STRATEGIES you have used and we are all able to celebrate your hard work in Book Club during these final minutes each week! Here you are, sharing the summarising strategy…
Mrs Veary and Room 6

Today we are going to be looking at Our Patch – here in Margaret River.
We live in the south-west of Western Australia.
- Can you find where we are on this map?
NATIONAL GEOGRAPHIC MAP – you need to zoom in to find us
2. What kinds of activities do people do in Our Patch – as a business which affects the environment? (Think of the things you see around you when you drive around – between Busselton and Augusta) Some of them are natural and some of them are man-made.
Today you will be writing about and drawing your favourite two places in Our Patch: one will be a NATURAL PLACE and one will be a MAN-MADE PLACE. I can’t wait to see what places you will choose.
