Primary 4 began using a new reading resource a few weeks ago. It is called an SRA Reading Laboratory. Nearly all the classes in school will be using an SRA box soon. Although it was a little difficult at the beginning, overall everyone is really enjoying it. Here are some of the things P4 said about the SRA box:
The SRA is a challenging box to do but you will get higher stages. Rhiannon
The questions make you think. Adam
When I started the SRA box I found it very hard but that was because I didn’t understand but now I do. Holly
The SRA box helps you read better. Caitlyn
Now I know what to do I can do it properly without help. Sophie
