Your Parents' / Teachers' Favourite Books When They Were Your Age

Hi everyone!
Welcome to another wonderful week of reading and exploring our thinking. 

This week's discussion is all about your parents' favourite books when they were your age.  What did they love to read?  Get them to share their thoughts on the blog, or you could add them for them as comments.

I can't wait to hear what they loved!  I loved the Trixie Belden series!

Group Reflections on Literature Circles

Your task is to reflect on what's been happening in our Literature Circles programme over the last few weeks.  Has it changed your attitude towards reading?  Do you enjoy it more?  What is the value of it?  What's the difference between Literacy and Literature???  Be really precise and clear on this. :-)

This is your chance to sell this programme and encourage others to use Literature Circles in their teaching and learning. 


Here's your chance to recommend your favourite books / authors to the rest of the world.  Add your ideas / recommendations as comments below.
