We now have some brand new ‘whisper’ phones in our class to use during reading activities, as a part of our Daily 5 Reading tasks.
We LOVE our whisper phones which were made by John Nuske, Isaac’s Dad from our class. John made 80 whisper phones – a class set for each of our Year 2 team classes. We use our phones to whisper reading our books from our good fit book boxes. We MUST whisper into the phone because it’s too loud in our ears if we speak into them. These phones are a wonderful way for us to hear ourselves read and help us to further develop our reading skills.
We’d like to say a huge THANK YOU to John for making our whisper phones – he collected the materials, negotiated cheaper prices for our materials, had materials donated by Bunnings and Reece’s Plumbing in Blackwood and spent many hours putting them together. You’re amazing John – thank you so much. Also, thanks to Isaac for being a handy helper.
