Circle Time

We have started our reading circle time with great success. It really showed that you are enjoying reading the fantasy short stories even though some of you might have found them a bit difficult.

Reading circle time is a time for us to gather together to share the main ideas in the stories without revealing the end, giving our opinion and recommending the different stories so as to encourage other peers to read them.

Keep on reading with the same energy and don't get discouraged!
