Read Across the Universe! It's Book Week!

We have had a wonderful week of celebrations for Book Week. We had a dress up day on Wednesday and everyone dressed up in the space theme. The Preps and their buddies shared books and had a fabulous time. We love reading books in Prep!

We had fun on our dressing up day and we had a really fun time at the parade. Alexa

We made suitcases and we had to draw things that we would take to space. We showed our suitcases to our buddies. Chantelle

We read 'Too Many Elephants in This House' and made elephants out of paper bags. Joshua

We  brought our favourite books to school and we shared our books. Declan

  4. Hi Prep K

    You have had the BEST Book Week!

    I love your creative costumes and seeing your favourite books. Your elephants are fabulous and look at your sensational suitcases!

    We had our Book Week Parade on Friday and did lots of fun book activities. Some of our Preps said they wanted have Book Week EVERY week!!

    I have far too many favourite books because I'm a teacher librarian who is lucky to read lots of wonderful books every day...

    Happy reading Prep K!

  9. Dear Prep K,

    My name is Genevieve and I am studying to be a teacher at Australian Catholic University in Melbourne.

    My favourite book at the moment is called Peggy by Anna Walker. Peggy is a friendly chicken who likes jumping on trampolines and has a fun day in Melbourne. Has your class read the book Peggy?

    My family has three chickens. We thought we had four, but one was making a funny noise every morning. We got a shock when we worked out it is a Rooster, but now we think it is exciting!

    Congratulations on your creative Book Week costumes. Thank you for sharing about reading with your buddies.

    From Genevieve

  10. Hey Prep K!

    My name is Sarah and I am a pre-service teacher at ACU and I loved stopping by on your blog.

    It is so interesting to see what you get up to, especially during book week!

    Keep up the good work!


  11. Hi everyone!
    My name is Caitlin and I am a pre-service teacher at ACU. Your blog is fantastic! I loved having a look at the things you have done for Book Week. The 'shelfies' clearly show how much you all love reading! My favorite picture book at the moment is called The Hero of Little Street. It's a wordless book and shows the adventures of a little boy who weaves in and out of paintings. Thank you for showing all of your hard work!
