Principal's Message

Learning to Read

Dear Parents of Sibylla Kiddle School,
The ability to read is something most of us take for granted. It is a process that is so automatic that we don’t think about it and yet without the skill, navigating life would be incredibly difficult. I voted in advance polls this past weekend and was faced with a number of referendum questions. I had to slow down and consciously read the questions. I was so thankful for my ability to read as the questions were not necessarily intuitive to understand on a quick glance.
Learning to read comes easily to some and is challenging for others but the need to learn this skill is universal for all. Often supporting this learning process at home can be challenging. Accessing appropriate reading level resources can be difficult. The stories that children love to hear read aloud are not always at a level that is comfortable for them to read.
To assist the reading process at home, the Sibylla Kiddle Fundraising Society has generously purchased a digital site licence for our students to have access to RAZ Kids. RAZ Kids is a digital library of levelled books for students to read at home. Your child will find fiction and non-fiction books with a wide variety of topics at each level. Each book has audio of the book being read, an opportunity for your child to read the book themselves and then a few key comprehension questions for your child to answer. It can be accessed from any browser or you can also download it as an app on your tablet. Each teacher (Grades 1 – 5) has set up their classroom for access to the program. If you have not heard from them already, please ask them for the information you need to log on. You can also ask them for guidance on what level of books your child can be working on. We hope this resource can be a valuable tool for both you and your child as you support their reading development from home.
Sincerely, Brad Emery Principal
