What is your favourite book?

To start our literacy for the year, we have been thinking about and sharing our favourite books. We then have been creating short reviews using Google Drawing. I chose Wonder by R.J. Palacio, which is a book I have really enjoyed reading by myself and together with two classrooms.

As a learning model, I created three short reviews of Wonder at three different levels. Below is the level two example.

Level 2 Model
It was great to hear all the different books that were Rimu favourites. The students have quickly got on with the learning task and created interesting reviews. Two students, Oscar J and Oscar W were chosen for the Weekly Highlights wall for their great jobs.

Oscar J's Favourite Book

Oscar wrote to his personal best. You could tell from his writing that he really enjoys the book as well as the movie. We like how he included his favourite part of the book and his great structure with clear paragraphs.
Oscar W's Favourite Book

Oscar W wrote to his personal best. His review showed that he truly loved the book. We loved the part where he wrote "every time I read this book I feel like I'm Dirty Bertie
".

  1. Well done to the first two boys who have been put onto the weekly highlights. It is such good news.
    I was super proud of the interesting way that Oscar W let the reader know that the books were available, and the great paragraphs that Oscar J used. Well done Oscars.
