While we celebrate the love of reading every month in 1MB, the month of February brought some extra attention to the love of literature. This month we had some guest readers stop by to share their favorite books. We thank them for their time!
All grade 1 classes participated in a Teacher Swap. The teachers rotated from class to class sharing some of their favorite books with a new audience. JRW school held a Story Book Character Dress Up Day on February 15th. Students were encouraged to dress up as a favorite character from a book. Elsa and Anna showed up from Frozen along with many other characters including Rapunzel, The Cat in the Hat and Angelina Ballerina.
1MB also had a Home Reading Challenge. We started with a bare Enchanted Tree to go along with the Book Fair theme. Each day, as children read for at least 10 minutes at home, they earned a leaf to help our tree blossom! The results so far are below.
We have had a lot of fun celebrating reading and literacy and will continue the excitement until June!!
