Reading Books to be changed every 2/3 weeks
Concurrently a Book Rotation System will be carried out. Children will be asked to donate a Maltese reading book and every week children will have the opportunity to swap their own reading books with a friend's.
It is very important that Maltese Reading is promoted, given that this enables the children to become fluent readers and acquire a new range of Maltese Vocabulary.
Taħdit u Smigħ
Each week I will be introducing a new set of Vocabulary list as part of our Thematic approach system.

8 words will be chosen to be given out as Dettatura.

Dettatura will be assessed on a Friday.
Readers will be changed every 2/3 weeks.
It is very important that Reading books are to be carried within their school bags on a daily basis.
I cannot emphasis enough the importance of reading on a daily basis at home.
Providing the right opportunity
Model ways of thinking
Share thinking skills but at the same time allowing children to discover and experiment on their own
Creative Thinking
This is our team
see you very soon
