This week in Daily 5 as one of our Listening to Reading tasks we watched this amazing story using the interactive whiteboard.
The House That Jane Built by Tanya Lee Stone tells the story of Jane Addams who was a young girl with a dream in her heart to help people and make the world a better place.
It was such a beautiful and inspiring story, based on actual events and prompted some terrific discussion in our class about what our dreams for the future are and how we can help others.
It's wonderful to see our students' effort in exploring different types of texts and discussing the purpose, themes and content presented with increasing maturity and depth of thought.
Here's a link to the story...
