There is lots of discussion right now about how important it is that we treat each other with respect and how everyone matters.  Christian Robinson is an illustrator/author who wrote You Matter to tell everyone that they are valued.  To learn more about him and his books visit his webpage: The Art of Fun.


It’s time to do some non-fiction learning.  Let’s visit some of my favourite  animals and places (including the ones at the bottom that I’d love to meet).  Please leave me a comment as to which one interested you.

Hello Reading Club folks,

The last form, for 151-200 nights of reading, is now available for those students who have completed the first three.

Read, Read, Read, as you have until May 31 to complete your 200 Nights of Reading and then dedicate a library book.

We’ve been having great fun celebrating reading this week at Buckingham.

Family Literacy Day is officially this Saturday, January 27. For more information check out: https://abclifeliteracy.ca/family-literacy

In our final week of library we enjoyed the classic story The Night Before Christmas done up as a spectacular picture book by Robert Sabuda.



Thank you to all the students who returned their books for the holidays. Be sure to visit the public library over the holiday.

Happy Holidays
Ms Carson
