Pillows & Blankies & Milo & Cookies & Books & Stuff

We had a great morning today.
We came to school wearing our 'snuggle up with a book' clothes and started the day creating 'Book Trailers' (using iMovie) on the iPads. Kind of like movie trailers but about our favourite books.
Mr Turnhout from Tui Class (our buddy class) visited us and read a story and Ms Hampson went to read a book to Tui Class.
When Ms Hampson came back we played 'Book Musical Chairs' it's like regular musical chairs but with books. We got to look at and read a little bit from lots of different kinds of books.
Then we went back into our classroom for Milo and cookies and some quiet reading time.
Here are some photos of our morning and three of our Book Trailers.

Last week was the 12th anniversary of the 911 attacks in America.
One of our homework tasks was to find out information about the attacks and present our findings in a creative way.
