Personal Reading Histories

Tomorrow, my class are going to start thinking about and preparing their personal reading histories. Next week, we've invited parents in to work with them on creating a slide or video presentation.

I had a go at putting together my reading history earlier, up until I was about the age of 18 anyway, so I could show the children what I meant. It was actually really enjoyable. I've uploaded the presentation (which only lasts a minute) below and brought back a lot of memories. There are some 'hilarious' anecdotes to go with the slides for when I share it with the kids, but I'm afraid you'll have to use your imaginations and create your own.

I'm confident that children and parents working together will lead to some really high quality discussion about books and reading. Thank you to Teresa Cremin for the original idea.
