Look who’s back for another visit: Ana from the McGill Public Library. We played “Would You Rather”, read “The Little Red Hen”, acted out a story with our fingers/hands, and asked questions! We are grateful for this opportunity and we wish to see Ana soon again! Tomorrow is a professional development day for staff. Hmmm….what a great idea to visit the library tomorrow! Ana encourages the children to visit the library anytime 🙂
On Tuesday, November 10th, we had our first virtual assembly – Remembrance Day assembly.
In preparation for Remembrance Day next week, students listened to a story about peace. The story was called The Peace Book by Todd Parr. During the read aloud, students were enthusiastic about sharing what peace meant to them. After brainstorming ideas on the whiteboard, students were given a chance to draw what peace meant to them on a dove and add their pictures to a class wreath. The students learned that dove is a symbol for peace.
What a special opportunity! Ana from the McGill Public Library read us a story today on Zoom. She also took us on a tour of the library virtually. She encouraged the students to visit the public library to borrow books with their favorite fictional characters like Clifford the big red dog, Piggie and Elephant, Pigeon, and etc.
Division 15 is almost ready to go to the school library and take out books. Today, Mrs.Stocker showed us how to check out books from the library. We learned how to find our library stick, what a barcode is, and how to check books out with a scanner. “Got it”!
In preparation for our Daily 5 Language Arts Program, students are learning to build their STAMINA. When reading with your child at home, please use the “3 Ways to Read a Book” visual to support their reading at home.
These are some pictures of us reading to self and building our stamina:
On Orange Shirt Day, our learning cohort (Mme.Noble’s class and our class) enjoyed a read aloud from Ms.Hartman. The book she read was called You Hold Me Up by Monique Gray Smith.
