Series 3 | Lesson 12
Creators | Ben McKenzie & Kirli Saunders
Having a special space of our own that’s just for reading can be an amazing way to take time out from the world. In this lesson, Ben and Kirli will tell us all about how we can personalise a reading space in our home or school.
This lesson encourages students to develop their appreciation for reading, and to understand the importance of setting aside time for reading in their day. It asks them to think about creating a dedicated reading space in their home or school, where they can take ‘time out’ from the world and engage with a good story.
