March Madness! Tournament of Books

We are trying something new this Spring! What starts with 16 books will be narrowed down to 8, then 4, then 2 and then one final champion book of the year! Kindergarten to Grade 3 are reading together the books and voting on their favourites while Grade 3 to Grade 5 are reading a few books to vote on specific brackets of their tournament. We will see which books win the first round Friday, Feb 28. March 2-6 we will vote on the round of 8 and the round of 4 and the week before Spring Break we will narrow it down to 2 and then our champion book! March 13 we will find out the champion books for each tournament, give away these great books to some students who voted and have a celebration afternoon of reading. Be sure to check out the tournament display across from the library to see which books our school likes best!

 

Super Reader

With the help from the Kiwanis Club we are running the Super Reader program again. This is a great program for students to be rewarded and have incentive to read everyday at home. I have sent home a bright green slip to each student so they can record their first 50 nights of reading. Once planners arrive, Grade 2-5 can record their reading in there or keep using the green slips. Every time a student has reached 50 nights of reading, they will bring their slip to me to get a prize.  When students have reached 100 nights and 250 nights (the max you can reach) they will be recognized in a school assembly and be given a prize from the Kiwanis Club.   

  • First day to hand in 50 Nights = Tuesday, October 29                                     
  • First day to hand in 100 Nights = Tuesday, December 17
  • First day to hand in 150 Nights = Tuesday, February 4
  • First day to hand in 200 Nights = Tuesday, March 31 
  • First day to hand in 250 Nights = Tuesday, May 12

The First Super Reader Assembly will be on Friday, March 6 at 12:45pm. Students will be recognized for 100 nights of reading. 

Reading Link Challenge

Grade 4-5's have a unique opportunity to be a part of a Fraser Valley wide reading challenge. Students that are interested will have the chance to read as many of the six books we are given and try to remember as much as they can about them. We will have a school challenge to determine which team will represent our school.. That team will then go to a city wide challenge against other teams in our district. If we are the best of the best we go to face other teams throughout the Fraser Valley! It is a great event to get kids reading books they may have never thought of trying, that like trying new books and that enjoy being a part of a team. Books should be delivered to our school this month and students that are interested will be getting a book to start reading.

School Challenge is happening on Tuesday March 3 where one team will win to represent our school at the district challenge!
