TRIO has a number of lesson ideas that cover reading and responding to a text as well as composing texts. These Book Notes have been written for every grade (stage) in Primary school. Even if you don’t have a copy of the book, some texts are read on You Tube. All Book Notes have options for expanding the text set using other books, visual texts or mutlimodal texts.
The advantage of using Book Notes as a starting place for your planning is that some of the thinking has been done for you and there are variety of activities to choose from. Two brand new titles are The Museum of Me and Searching for Cicadas, Book Notes can be accessed here.
