Welcome Back!!! (or Welcome online :-)
Welcome to our new way of being at school together. I hope that you and your families were able to do some new activities while keeping safe and healthy over the break.
Of course I hope that you were reading over the break!!
I’m sad that we aren’t checking out books from our library now, but there are still ways to be reading and enjoying books:
If you borrowed library books then it’s time to reread them, talk about them with the people in your house, read your brother or sister’s books (yes Intermediates, even the picture books :-))
Looking for some new books? There are lots of places online to find audio or ebooks:
Burnaby Public Library: though the library is closed they are still offering library services. From their webpage (https://www.bpl.bc.ca/):
Hey Burnaby: don’t have a library card? Our branches are closed, but you can now call us at 604-436-5400 and get one for free!
Use it to stay home and keep reading with our expanding e-book and audiobook collections in Library to Go or on the Libby app. Browse and borrow from thousands of titles for kids, teens and adults, fiction and non-fiction.
Tumblebooks: from our Web Resources page, is one many students know:
How about watching some Canadian authors reading their books? There are authors for old and young here: Canadian Authors
Remember to not only Read, Read, Read, but talk, write and draw about stories.
