Last term during Technology time, when our class was split in two we started up Book Club. During this time we ask our buddy 5 of the questions from this list (we can also make up our own questions, as long as we use the Seven Servants), then we share as a class.
This term we are looking forward to bringing the whole class together for book club and using what we are learning with CSI (Comprehension Strategies Instruction) programme.
These questions can also be used by parents and family member to ask about our reading too.
