We've been learning about conjunctions and watching this video because we want to write longer sentences so that we do better writing while we are at school but this sentence is too long so I am going to stop now! How many conjunctions was that?

In Daily 5 the children have been learning how to choose books that 'fit' them. When we pick a book we need a purpose, interest, comprehension and knowledge of the words. We found that it is a bit like choosing a pair of shoes. If shoes fit us properly they are comfortable to wear, but there is no point trying to wear someone else's shoes because they may be uncomfortable and they may not suit us. The children had fun trying to find a 'good fit' shoe from the class pile. It was particularly difficult when they were blindfolded! Now their challenge is to choose 'good fit' books for reading. This can be tricky at first, particularly when they have lots of choice. When your child starts bringing reading books home from school, please be aware that s/he has chosen the book her/himself and talk to your child about that choice. You are welcome to pop into class and see me if there are any problems with this.
