welcome to a new school year!


Each year, the libraries of Shanghai SMIC Private School run several different programs. Some are school wide events, while others target specific grades. Among other activities, this month focused on school wide orientations to the library, National History Day in the SMIC-I Middle School, and Reading Spirit Week in the Elementary School.



Celebrating 70 Years 庆祝建国七十周年

Each library worked to create a display of resources that highlighted the rich culture and heritage of China as it celebrates its 70th anniversary. 为庆祝建国七十周年,中小学图书馆做了新中国,中国文化以及中国名人主题展示。将图书馆中相关图书集中陈列,便于师生借阅浏览。

Reading Spirit Week & Read-a-thon


Each year, the SMIC Elementary Library has chosen a week in late September to highlight the joys of reading with a reading spirit week. The entire school celebrates by showing their spirit for reading by dressing in daily themed costumes such as book characters or bright and shiny hats and glasses. The week is also a kickoff for the semester long read-a-thon. Students can earn medals by reading towards a grade-level appropriate goal. 延续传统小学的阅读比赛今年依旧如期展开。九月底热热闹闹的阅读周活动,作为阅读比赛的先导,以每天不同的主题激励大家振奋精神投入阅读活动,为赢得奖牌努力。

Blackout Poetry 瞎灯黑火来读诗

In September, Ms. Tice (librarian) visited 2nd graders and worked collaboratively with classroom teachers on Reading Spirit Week's Black Out Day. The students used a creative writing technique called "Blackout Poetry" to create original poetry anchored in their previous learning with character traits. 九月中,新到任的图书馆长泰斯女士和二年级的老师们合作了阅读周星期四的读诗活动。这项活动让学生利用诗中的缺漏字,来创造新诗,并结合品格教育的课题,寓教于乐。
