Reciprocal Reading in 5T

WALT: Understand and explain the importance of reciprocal reading groups and share it with a wider audience via blogs.

TIB: Reciprocal reading helps us learn to guide group discussions using four comprehension strategies (summarising, questioning, clarifying, and predicting). This encourages us to think about our own thought process during reading and helps us to be actively involved and monitor our comprehension skills as we read.


  • Why is reciprocal reading important?
  • Are the interconnectors useful in helping to understand the text deeper? Why/ why not?
  • Summarise the comprehension strategies we use when reading.




In pairs, choose a webtool to SHOW your understanding of reciprocal reading and its importance. (popplet, prezi, padlet, bubblus, voki, microsoft word, google slide). Record at least 8 things about reciprocal reading.

You may use titles, images, sub- headings etc to demonstrate your understanding.

Save your presentation and add 1 thing about reciprocal reading to the shared Padlet



Stage 2 Understand about Blogs

Today your job is to explain what you know about blogging and being safe on the internet using a different webtool.

WALT: understand the importance of being safe online

You can find the webtools on the sidebar.

TIB – The internet can be an unsafe place. We need to know how to be sensible and use it safely.


  • navigate the blog
  • read blogging guidelines on at least 2 different blogs
  • select a webtool and explore it
  • create a presentation which explains  Blogging Guidelines to others.

Completed products will be published on the blog!

– What is your brain thinking about while you read?

Let’s find out if you are right……..

What stuck with me?
The history and memories shared at the Australian War Memorial. With amazing dioramas and artefacts which tell the untold stories. Walking into the tomb of the unknown soldier resonated with me in particular.

Seeing the smiles on children’s faces as they play and learn about snow for the first time.

I look forward to seeing your entertaining and informative blog posts!
