WRAD wrap

We had an awesome day as we celebrated WRAD. The whole school stopped as one at 11am and celebrated the joy of reading by having a great story read to them.

Mrs Johnson read Stories from our street by Richard Tullock to 3J.

An inspirational local deaf woman, Pam Wells, shared Little owl by Phillip Gwynne with K/6D and then they had fun creating some art work.

Miss Wright read The book with no pictures by B.J.Novak to 2W and then everyone shared a book either from home or from the class library.

Mrs Robinson read Shaun Tan’s Rules of Summer before starting Alice’s adventures in Wonderland by Lewis Carroll to 3/4P. Students also had a chance to choose their own book to read.

These super star students were spotted in our library.

Happy WRAD everyone!

It’s Read Aloud Day everyday for these beautiful babes.

Mrs Brown’s daughter Nicole and her grandson Ari love reading together before bedtime. Mrs Brown told me Ari has an amazing library already. The Cranky Bear is among his favourites.

Mrs Robinson and Georgie have fun reading together. Angelina Ballerina and a cuddle before bed. It doesn’t get any better than this.

Hudson loves being read to. Miss Wright says it’s his favourite thing to do. He just LOVES books!

Mrs Bull and Maxi enjoy a story too.

Are you ready for WRAD? 5/6P and Miss Penburthy are all set. I wonder what great book they will be sharing?

Everyone loves having a great story read to them. Why don’t you surprise someone special and read to them today. I’d love to hear from you.

World Read Aloud Day (WRAD)

On Thursday the 16th of February Tenambit Public School will join millions of people from all over the world who will be celebrating World Read Aloud Day.

Every year World Read Aloud Day calls global attention to the importance of reading aloud and sharing stories. World Read Aloud Day motivates children, teens, and adults worldwide to celebrate the power of words and creates a community of readers advocating for every child’s right to a safe education and access to books and technology. It is about taking action to show the world that the right to read and write belongs to all people. http://www.litworld.org/wrad

Why don’t you join us too by reading aloud and sharing a story or two?

Please leave a comment and let me know who you read to.

We are so fortunate at Tenambit to have an amazing library and classrooms full of great books. My challenge to you today is to read aloud to your mum, dad, brothers, sisters, friends … why not ring or Skype nan or pop and read to them… you could even read to your cat or dog.
