THE TITANIC SINKS! APRIL 15, 1912 at 2:20 am

This week the Intermediate classes will be discussing the historical significance of the Titanic disaster, 100 years ago. We will be reading a survivor’s account of the terrible tragedy. Escaping Titanic: A Young Girl’s True Story of Survival, by Marybeth Lorbiecki, tells the story of 12-year-old Ruth Becker. Since this is a longer picturebook, we will be reading it in two parts: the first part this week, and the remainder next week.


There are many excellent websites about the Titanic. Click here for a list.



Kindergarteners and Grade 1 students will be reading the new Robert Munsch book, It’s My Room! This is a humorous story about a boy who finally gets his own room, but relatives keep coming over to visit.
