WALT collaborate and work together in our reading groups


Today we worked in our reading groups doing some hands-on activities. We all did different reading activities such as playing Boggle, Sight-Word Bingo, making words from piles of alphabet letters, making words on the Activboard. 
1 of the groups are making a play from a story they read, using Puppet-Pals on the I-pads. 
2 other groups are making a storyboard about Pepeha. They are making connections to a text they are reading, and their own pepeha. 
The group has created posters, based on the story they have been reading. 
Great self-managing skills room 1! You are doing a great job, and working really well together.
