silent reading readathon.

In room 13/14 and the whole school there is a readathon on. A readathon is something where we read a book then we put the title in our readathon booklets. Tomorrow some of our families will come, then we will read to them and we made an invitation just so they know. It goes from 29th till 2nd of September. We love to learn about the readathon. We think the whole school are asking for their family to come to the readathon. We read a book to our family members. We hope everyone has a great exciting time at the readathon.

1. Get coloured paper.
2. Fold your paper in half landscape.
3. Write your name in capital block letters that touch each other.
4. Cut out the block letters while keeping both sides of the paper together.
5. Unfold the name and stick the name onto a black piece of paper.
6. Using pastals, colour the black paper in so that your name looks like a monster.

School Singing

Clumsy Spike
Sore eyes
Spiky, red and white
Long, carrot shaped nose
And Clumsy

He stomps
“Boom boom”
When he stomps
On sticks
‘Crackle crackle”
He sounds like a dinosaur

He lives in an
Under ground
Spike Cave
He slips in puddles…...
Belly Flops
Back up!

He cooks on a stove
In a pot
From a borrowed kitchen
Across the road
Takes its back to his
Spike Cave

He eats…..
Pop corn
Rotten banana’s
Vege ice cream
Soup smoothie
Worm juice
People’s hair

He dances in his sleep
When he wakes up in the morning
Guess where he is?
In the wardrobe!!

Ms Donald read us this story called “The Little Shop Of Monsters” by R L Stine

We are learning to create our own class monster.

We had to come up with ideas on…..
What it looked like
The colour of it’s fur
Other features like …..eyes, nose and horns
It’s name
What it ate
Where it lived
What it likes to do

We wrote a class poem about our monster
