Reading to Self

Today we introduced  reading to self to the children.  Every day the children choose some books that they are interested in from anywhere in the classroom and then find a comfortable place to settle down and read.  Reading to self might include reading the pictures, reading the words or retelling the story.  We read to self every day to build up our stamina.
Today some children chose an atlas, picture books, Hadley's book he made about his hoilday in Australia, and home reader books to read. What amazing readers we have in Te Kakano!


  1. Great to see you enjoying a good book Jimmy. I love your special place you chose .... Is that a space in the room you choose often ? Keep up the hard work. Mum and Dad xx

  2. Oooooo well done Te Kakano. Our learners in 10.11 also spend some time reading to self throughout the week.

    I wonder if you would like to come and read with us one day?
