6SS Reading Portfolios Up & Running!

This is a screenshot of the 6SS Reading Portfolios on Voicethread. The students will keep adding to their portfolios as they read books this year. They will be able to track how their reading changes and develops and also how their ability to talk about their reading changes and develops. Basically, it will become a visual continuum of their reading.

To really make this work, the 6SS students will need to get into the habit of adding books to the portfolio and making comments about them regularly. As their teacher, I need to help them develop this habit and also help them to make their comments more and more interesting.

    Marvellous and innovative idea! Far better than writing down on the reading log which also means more environmental friendly!

      Hi Stephanie… you’re right, it is more environmentally friendly, and definitely more engaging than reading logs – they can really kill reading for some kids.

    I think this is such a good idea. I would like to try this with children at my school. I am most interested to see what you are all reading and. I wonder if your choice of books is similar to what the kids at our school are reading.

      Hi Layla… thanks! We’ll really try to keep our portfolios updated so that they are4 a genuine reflection of what we read this year.
