We also looked at clues that show us how to read a text. As a class we shared a story from Mouse and Mole and practiced changing how we read when we come to one of these clues.
When reading together at home, you can point out when you come across features such as dialogue or special text and how these features tell you to read with emotion or emphasis.
You can continue to remind your child of notable events in their daily life that they might want to write about. Our upcoming February shares may be a great opportunity for your child to rehearse a story and share it with the class.
