During father's fortnight at my daughter’s school (Billanook PS), I spent 30 minutes doing a story set with the three prep classes (All combined for a big-group story time!) and 30 minutes in my daughter’s year 6 class talking to them about literacy. My daughter and I sang Puff the Magic Dragon to her class. There were lots of awwws and oohhhs around the room. It's so good to see a classroom that appreciates each other.
I told the older kids I had just been reading stories to the little kids. After a few questions and the discussion about literacy, one of the girls asked, "Can you read us a story?"
(Or perhaps, because they knew it so well!)
