Shared Reading – The Tiny Seed
Today we read our shared reading text, ‘The Tiny Seed’ by Eric Carle and focused on one of our high frequency words, ‘the’. You will see this word in their new Reading Memo books, found in their Library Bags. You will find many useful ways to help your child learn to read and write within this book.
The children practiced reading the word and putting it into sentences during Writer’s Workshop, where they continued their book from last Monday.

Today we talked about the word trust.
Mrs Feher asked the children, ‘what does trust mean?’
Viraj – ‘Believe me!’
Shane – ‘we have to believe other people and that is trusting. The teacher can trust you to go somewhere by yourself.’
Alana – ‘when you trust people.’
Mrs Feher then asked the children , ‘who do you trust?’
Shane – ‘We trust Jesus.’
Viraj – ‘I trust mum and dad because they never lie.’
Alana – ‘I trust my cousin.’

Mikayla – ‘I trust my grandma because she takes good care of me.’

After we traced around our hands and thought of one safe person who we trust in our lives for each finger on our hand.
