Here is a short video/slideshow about our DEAR Day. Please share!
We had a great day celebrating Drop Everything And Read day and School Library Day. Everyone was invited to wear their pyjamas and some of us even brought our favourite stuffies. We read in the hallways, the pods, our classrooms and, of course, in the library!
Why do we do this every year? Independent reading, choice and time to read is what students, and adults, need to become readers.
“A child sitting in a quiet room with a good book isn’t a flashy or marketable teaching method. It just happens to be the only way anyone became a reader.” Nancy Atwell, The Reading Zone
Thank you Jon Scop from Burnaby Public Library for visiting our school yesterday. Divisions 3,4 and 15 attended the presentation where Jon talked to us about resources at BPL and gave some great book talks. Many of the books are now on my list to read and purchase for our school library.
Here is the list of books Jon spoke about:
Thanks, Jon and BPL!
