Laura B. Sprague School - March 31, 2021

Did Your Student Participate in the Global Book Club?

Big picture

No matter how many "virtual" countries your child has visited by the end of March, if your child participated in the Global Book Club, please take a picture of your child and their 'world traveler passport', reading, or doing a World Traveler activity and send it to mvanduch@d103.org or text it to her at 847-791-3749.

During the month of March, Sprague challenged students to participate in a Global Book Club. The theme was celebrating a nation of diverse readers! Students were asked to do the following:

  1. Print out the World Traveler Passport record keeping sheet.
  2. Each school day in March a Seesaw activity was pushed out on your child's iPad. The Seesaw activity included resources to learn about a specific country that may include a read aloud, virtual fields trips, crafts, songs, and dances.
  3. After your child explored a country, the child was asked to color in that country's flag on their passport! This was an optional activity for your child to enjoy and explore on their own.
