Wahroonga - Sydney Writers Festival

As this week is literacy week and the Sydney writers festival is on we have been looking at how books are written as well as looking at different types of books.

We read the book "Parsley Rabbit's Book About Books" which teaches the children about what makes up a book. Benjamin noticed the page numbers in the book and said that he has a big book at home with page numbers and you use them to find something interesting. We looked at a factual book on insects and the children were shown how you can look up an insect using the table of contents or the index and then finding that page number.

We then set to work writing our own story. The class came up with many ideas about the characters in our story and what our story could be about we took a vote and decided on a butterfly and a monster.
