Here are some fun photos of children who visited the Book Fair!
We managed to sell 128 books this year! What an accomplishment! I hope everyone was able to find a book to read this summer and continue their literacy learning they have done this term.
Our Book Fair is on! May 16-18th!
Please drop by at lunch and after school to get a book to read for the summer break!
Our goal is to sell 131 books; one book fore each student in the school.
Hello to all Rosser Readers!
Over the past few weeks, Ms Sansom’s class along with a few children from Mr Bach’s class have been participating in Battle of the Books. Each team was to collectively read 10 chosen books and retain as much detail as possible about each book they have read. Questions about the books are asked at random and each team must decide from which book the answer is from. Correct answers for each team were given a point.
A series of four battles took place, and at the end of the fourth battle our winning team won by a single point!
All the teams from Rosser who participated recognized valuable lessons through this series of events;
- The more students that read the books, the better chance you have
- It is a TEAM effort. Relying on only 1 key member is not always the best idea
- Communication is key. Listening is just as important.
- Paying attention to detail in a novel may help you develop a better understanding
- Good sportsmanship regardless of outcome is vital.
Last week our winning team at Rosser attended the District Final Battle of the Books. It was held at University Highland Elementary! The questions asked at the District final were particularly detailed and challenging, and the pace remained quick! Even I had difficulty remembering some!
Although we did not win the district final, our team of 5 did extremely well and we should all be very proud of their efforts! Well done team!
We had our first Snuggle Down at Rosser where buddies got together and were able to spend some time reading alongside, to or with each other.
Students brought favourite books from home or chose some from the library or classroom to read. The enjoyment in selecting your own reading material is so important for how children perceive and understand literacy and their willingness to pick up another book!
We also had a break to enjoy some hot chocolate!
Have a look at some photos from our Snuggle Down and read day.
