Tautoru Reading Workshop

Thanks to all those who came along to our workshop on reading today. We shared some decoding and comprehension strategies. Remember to show your child that you enjoy reading, and that you do it often. 

Have a look at the WBS Library Website website for some ideas for books to read with or to your child. We're going to put together a list of books with the students that they enjoy and will share it on the blog shortly.

Read the News, ask questions and talk about what is happening in the world. A great site for kids is Kiwi Kids News Site

Here is the presentation that we shared:

Stuck in the Mud Soccer

This is Autahi and Tautoru with our coaches

Today we played stuck in the mud. We started with the normal version and then we played with the ball. We played with the ball to make it harder and learn how to control it. We had to try and try again. After playing stuck in the mud, we played a soccer game. A big thank you to our coaches Col and Saul.
