Our Reading Community

We are having a big focus on reading this Term in Māhutonga/Matariki! It was exciting to launch this with the 'Book Club' slides. Students have been adding to it with their own recent reads and recommendations. We aim to offer new reading material to our whanau!

Research tells us that intrinsic motivation for reading comes through extrinsic motivation and creating an environment that gets young readers excited about reading. We can achieve this by engaging in conversation about what we are reading and motivate students to read.  In some groups students are working towards reading for rewards, to which one student asked "is this allowed?!"
