Last week we celebrated Literacy in a big way at South Slope/BCSD.
Next, we were treated to three special Readers’ Theatre performances. BCSD students performed Red Dragon, Red Dragon based on Eric Carle’s Brown Bear, Brown Bear. Leadership students performed a very funny play called, Claynocchio. And finally, South Slope staff was very cool in their shades while they performed, Pete the Cat and his Magic Sunglasses.
On Tuesday everyone was invited to dress up as their favourite character from a book. Can you guess who these staff and students are?
All week the school participated in Drop Everything and Read times every day.
On Wednesday, we had special guest readers for every classroom from the Burnaby School district and the community.
Every classroom all read the book, Journey by Aaron Becker. Journey is a wordless picture book that invites readers to use their imagination and embark on incredible adventures. Many classes have displayed their responses in the hallways.
Our theme this week was Reading Opens Doors. What doors has reading opened for you? Do you have a favourite book that changed you or took you on an incredible adventure? I’d love to read your responses here or come and talk to me in the library.
