NATIONAL SIMULTANEOUS STORYTIME
May the 27th 2015
See the website link for more information about the event.
Yesterday, we celebrated NATIONAL SIMULTANEOUS STORYTIME for the first time.
We began by viewing the AUSLAN version of this year’s selected book – The Brothers Quibble
The AUSLAN translator was very animated and funny. This added to the viewing of the story.

SHARING THE LOVE OF READING
A Year 3 classroom teacher (Mr Dalby) had eagerly offered to share and read during this time.

Mr Dalby read some of his favourite books, two of these are listed below:
- Where the Wild Things Are
- Emily Loves To Bounce (actually anything by Stephen Michael King is high on his list).
It was lovely to see the students enjoying the simple pleasure of being read to. Thanks to those who participated in the event and we hope to make it an annual event.
See more books by Aaron Blabey.
One of his books is Thelma the Unicorn (which is one of the books we have identified as being a BEST READ ALOUD BOOK) .
Hear him reading it below.
