Today Y4DT made an excellent start on their work in Guided Reading around our new class novel, The Chronicles of Harris Burdick. The children were thoroughly engaged with the exciting story, The Third Floor Bedroom.
Written by a favourite author of Year 4, Kate D’Camilo, the children used Word Wolf to decode the extremely tricky words and phrases in this enthralling story.
We had a range of fantastic inferences made by the team on the meaning of the story, the purpose of the story and the significance of the story.
The children used their dictionaries extremely well to find and discover the meanings of words like stalwart, relentless, hyperbole and consolation. We discovered that this magnificent range of vocabulary was central to the messages and meaning of the story.
