Week 41: A Short Message

A short (and mostly visual) message this week!

First things first: Monday, October 7th (tomorrow!) we will play board games after school in the library. From 14.30 – 15.30. I will lead a game of Dixit. Students are welcome to play chess, or bring a game from home to play.

Last week, students brainstormed for ways to assure that we can all read, relax, find a book and have fun in the library. Here’s the result:


These ideas will result into our library agreements.

Next week, we will practice choosing a “just right” book. We will either use the Five Finger Rule, or the I-PICK method. Our Word and Quote of the Week support the idea of finding a good fit book.

We have witnessed some great student agency in action! A few PYP 5 students have showed interest in helping out in the library from 14.30 – 15.00. These students help with returning and shelving books, helping other students check out their books, as well as whatever else needs to be done! They have dubbed themselves “Library Lovers” with badges to go with!

We are excited for another week full of “just right” books and reading!
