In Reading today we focused on the reading strategy of ‘Searching for and using information’ with a focus on applying this when reading online texts. The children went on to the Herald Sun’s Kids News website and found an article of interest to them. They read the article and then applied their knowledge of searching for and using information to answer the quick quiz at the end of the article.
The children loved having the opportunity to read in a different format to a traditional book and there was lots of exciting discussions during sharing time around the topics of their articles.
A very popular choice in our class was an article about the winners of the TV show Lego Masters!
