the word panache needs an accent, but look it up.
i was very impressed with your literacy efforts today. the reader's theatre group were outstanding! so much better than i expected given the lack of experience.
the two literature circle groups were effective too. i think once you all hav emastered the technique of running your own literacy sessions you will be able to impress the restof the school with your talents. most importantly, you will be learning to self instruct, encourage each other, provide valid feedback in a positive manner and evaluate your own performance for improvement - a valuable skill in today's world and applicable to any situation.
well done troops!
also, some of you created incredibly impressive "word webs" today with all the literacy knowledge you displayed.
congratulations you marvellous things!
