This term has started with a dip into the fascinating world of multiple intelligences…

Using music to inspire creative writing, feelings and pictures…

Exploring words from the books on the board to get the students to figure out the importance they may have for the plot…

Using coloured pens to create a visual poster of words and pictures evoked by music…

Watching a trailer of the film version of the book we are about to read and relating it to our world knowledge…

Adapting a part of a Shakespeare play to a modern setting and language and acting it out…

Improvising a scene from a play and transferring the setting to a different place and time…

Reading a narrative like a play, taking on different parts and using voice to convey character…

Playing Kahoots to explore symbolism and to learn about different aspects about the book and author…

Thinking up parts of a Shakespeare play as an exit ticket…

Exploring the rural and urban aspects of Kabul in Afghanistan, Verona in Italy and many more places though 360cities where you can visit a place virtually…

Tapping into out fantasy world in a magic forest with fairies and the like…

In short, we have used all our intelligences to explore the pre- reading of our new readers. “What about the Interpersonal and Intrapersonal intelligences”, I hear you ask … well the Interpersonal has been used when working as a group and collaborating and cooperating with the others in class and… the intrapesonal has been explored when letting the music narrate a story in our heads. We will continue to explore these two (and all the others) further by using an amazing app called Seesaw; an online learning journal with adjacent blog. Stay tuned to the next blog entry for more exciting information about our creative world of Readers.
