Ditch the home readers – real books are better for your child As school resumes for the new year, the “home reader” routine for primary school children also recommences. For many parents and children, reading these short texts can be the most agonising part of the nightly homework routine. It’s no wonder that so many children dislike reading their home reader. These books are often mass-produced, boring texts that hold little excitement or mystery. Frequently, they are the same book that your child has read before, either in class or as a previous week’s home reader.

Reading Games Eat the letters in the correct order to spell each word. Match the words to the pictures. Drag and drop each word label onto the matching picture.

Ms. Lovenberg's Happy Little Kindergarten: FREEBIES Kindergarten is an incredible adventure filled with exciting activities and experiences. I assume that some of our students (and parents) are a bit nervous about the first day of kindergarten. Honestly, I am too. Every year, I have butterflies when I wake up for the first day of school! I found this poem online a few weeks ago and thought it would be the perfect 'favor' to hand out at my Meet the Teacher event. The poem goes as follows:

Anne Frank: 10 beautiful quotes from The Diary of a Young Girl The theme for Holocaust Memorial Day 2015 is “keep the memory alive”, and today we want to remember Annelies Marie Frank, better known as Anne Frank, who started her diary Diary of a Young Girl at the age of just 13, while hiding from the German occupation of Amsterdam during the second world war. Anne wrote her diary in hiding in a secret annex of an old warehouse for the next two years. The diary stops abruptly in August 1944, when her family are betrayed and eventually sent to Auschwitz death camp. Only Anne’s father Otto survived and published his daughter’s Anne’s diary in 1947. Even if you haven’t read the diary, you will probably have heard of Anne Frank, seen one of the many film adaptations of Diary of a Young Girl, or even visited the Anne Frank museum in Amsterdam. But we still think that the best way to experience Diary of a Young Girl is to read it yourself.
