Just enjoying reading this great post about reading inspired activity.
It has encouraged me to focus on the way that I interact, through text, with my year 7 English class. We read aloud every lesson and we discuss what we have read recently and what we have seen and heard on the news as well as share stories about what is going on in our lives. Although we have been learning together since February, we have not yet look at a text as a call to action.
This has really started me thinking about how to use texts in my classroom next week! We are currently in the middle of a creative writing unit, creating a series of texts with a shark theme. Any ideas for shark oriented activities in the classroom are most welcome!
