Some of our reading groups have been working with a buddy to create an independent Reading Projected based around their interest in the Olympic Games. Students got to choose a buddy to work with for this project, and then worked through a framework that would support them to create this as it is their first project of this type.
Students had guided reading sessions with me (reading texts about the Olympics), were able to access pre-selected online learning sites that would support them in answering these questions as well as utilizing the library resources on their 'book club' day. On Thursday afternoon they went to show their presentations to children in the senior room who offered them feedback and support to improve these presentation further. Students then shared these with our class. Here are a few that we wanted to share with you.
