Read to Self

We are learning to read to self. This builds our reading stamina and helps us to get better at reading. We also have lots of fun reading!

Success Criteria

  • I read quietly
  • I concentrate on the book
  • I stay in space
  • I read the whole time
  • I get started straight away

How I am going

Read to self
Kerri thinks


I really like: Reading about trucks.

I think I need to practice: Reading books from my book box.

Daniel, during read to self you get started straight away and you stay in one place. Remember there are 3 ways to read a book and you can read the pictures of the tricky books. Reading books from your book box will help you learn and remember your new words.

We are learning to build our confidence in and around the water. We practise our swimming skills and love to show off our new tricks.

This is what I have been practising:
Safe entry into the pool (1/4 turn entry)

Submerge and blow bubbles

Float on my back (Starfish)

Float on my front (Starfish)

Pick up objects with my hand

Rocket arms on my front

Rocket arms on my back
Kerri thinks


I am really proud of: Doing rocket arms on my front.

It is tricky when: Picking things up from the bottom.

The next thing I want to learn is: To do rocket arms on my back.

Daniel, you enter the pool safely and you can float on your front in a starfish. Keep on practising floating on your back, remember to push your tummy up to the sky to help you to float. Picking things up from the bottom can be tricky but when you blow bubbles and open your eyes you can see and water won't go up your nose.
