Forest of Reading
Students in grades 3, 4, and 5 students will be invited to participate in the Silver Birch Express Book Club, which will run in the library during nutribreak. We have 6 copies of each of the nominated books and students again need to read at least 5 of them in order to participate in the provincial voting day. Each interested student will be given a passport to fill out after finishing a book and are asked to have an "expert" teacher sign their passport. Announcements will be made with more information for any interested students.
We are still looking for a few more interested staff who would like to be an "expert" with one of the Silver Birch Express books. If you would be willing to spend one nutribreak a week "checking in" with students about their book, please let me know.
Family Literacy Day - January 27th
January 27th is recognized at National Family Literacy Day. This year's theme is: "15 Minutes of Fun!" Canadian families are being encouraged to have "15 minutes of fun" learning together. The ABC Life Literacy Canada website has a list of 15 ways that families can enjoy learning together. Check out the link to learn more. http://abclifeliteracy.ca/fld/15-minutes-of-fun
To help celebrate literacy with our community, we will be inviting families to come in during the day on the 27th, to either read a story to some students in the library or to drop by and share a book or related literacy activity with their preschool child. A notice will be going out to families shortly with more information.
