This week is the last week of formal lessons in the school library. The Stage 2 and Stage 3 students are investigating the websites of Judith Ridge (WestWords, particularly the “Book Club” section), and the writing tips of popular author, Deborah Abela.
At a recent teacher-librarians’ professional learning day, Deb introduced us to the highly motivating Story Starter Scrambler machine, on the Scholastic website.
Deb’s very persuasive Youtube book trailers are at:
The remarkable secret of Aurelie Bonhoffen
To finish off we will read Chapter 1 of Deb’s novel, Max Remy, super spy.
