What better way to spend a lazy summer day than by diving into a good book?!
Here are Mme Yio’s summer picks!
The Growing Reader (5-8)
The Middle Grade Reader (9-12)
In light of the pandemic, she will be releasing a few chapters per week on https://www.theickabog.com/home/.
She is hosting a contest for students to illustrate the book! All of the details are on her website. https://www.theickabog.com/competition/
Take reading beyond the book! Make connections and have fun! For more reader-maker challenges, look under “reading resources” on the École Westridge Menu. There is a section in French as well!
