Reading Olympics

Reading Olympics

Students in grades 2, 3 and 4 will be encouraged to participate in the library's Reading Olympics.

The events are different reading genres so the students will read a wide variety over the next few weeks. In library we will discuss different genres as well as look at how to choose 'just right' books. We've talked a lot about choosing something that is the correct level using the 5 Finger Rule (read a page and if you make 5 mistakes then it's too hard). Now, we will explore how to find books using websites like the Book Wizard  or the Stacks

To help our Olympic spirit along we will have a 'Character Day' on Thurs. Feb. 13 were students will dress up as their favourite book character, as well as a book drive on World Book Day in March. And, we will have a visiting poet that will inspire us to not only read but write poetry!

Parents can help their child in many ways.
