African American Read-In
Celebrate Black History Month with a music-infused #OwnVoices read-aloud event for all ages. University of Washington Master of Library and Information Science students will read stories by African American authors and artists.
The African American Read-In is hosted by Dr. Michelle H. Martin and iSchool students and sponsored by the University of Washington.
Optional March Student Book Club
Join us for an optional January book club! Students in grades 1-2 will read Warriors: Into the Wild by Erin hunter and students in grades 3-5 will read Sisters Grimm: Fairy-Tale Detectives by Michael Buckley.
We are also offering a Spanish book club for all grade levels. We are reading Flora and Ulises by Kate DiCamillo.
We will meet in groups of 10 or fewer to discuss the book from 12:45-1:15 PM on Wednesday March 17th. The book clubs will be led by book-loving school staff members such as Mrs. Bodmer & Principal Mackey. There is only room for 60 students at this time so it will be first come, first serve. We will offer another book club in April and will prioritize those students who did not get to participate yet.
The free ebook can be found on getepic.com. If your teacher does not have an Epic class code, please use mine (aaz5143) to access the book. If you don't see your student's name on the list, please email me and I will add it.
Adult/Child Book Clubs grades 4-5
Join us for a Cascadia adult/child book club for grades 4-5. We will be reading and discussing Look Both Ways: A Tale Told in Ten Blocks by Jason Reynolds. We will meet online on March 15th at 6:00 p.m. Please RSVP here so that I have an accurate headcount for the breakout groups.
"From National Book Award finalist and #1 New York Times bestselling author Jason Reynolds comes a novel told in ten blocks, showing all the different directions kids’ walks home can take. Jason Reynolds conjures ten tales (one per block) about what happens after the dismissal bell rings, and brilliantly weaves them into one wickedly funny, piercingly poignant look at the detours we face on the walk home, and in life."
