The 3/4 Teachers have missed seeing the faces of our students this term and we can not wait to all be back at school learning together!
In Literacy this term, students will be focusing on a number of different reading strategies that will assist them to broaden both their reading and writing skills. Students will be identifying the difference between facts and details, making connections to another text, themselves or the world. They will also be looking at the author's purpose and the different word choices in each genre. Students will investigate puns, alliteration, rhyme, repitition, onomatopoeia, similies, personification, metaphors, idioms, rhetorical questions and hyperbole in order to not only find them in texts but also use them in their writing. They will also get the chance to expand on their public speaking through Reader's Theatre.
