Every Day is Different
We will take the days as they come in the library next week, as every day will give us something new to think about and work with. We will definitely be reading, listening, sharing. We will be, hopefully, learning from our exhibition groups, as they come and talk about their projects to other classes. We will be playing the Once Upon A Time game, now that we have, temporarily, smaller classes. We will be inquirers, caring, knowledgeable – but most of all, we aim to be balanced during these unpredictable times.
Library Time At Home
As so many schools around the world are closed, many authors and illustrators in the children’s literature world are sharing their work, expertise and inspiration with their readers. Here is a selection:
Lunch Doodles with Mo Willems (author/illustrator of the Pigeon books, and Knuffle Bunny).
Drawing, creative projects, read alouds, book previews, etc by Stimola Literary Studios. Stimola Live is a website of live stream events for kids, tweens, and teens by professional authors and illustrators represented by Stimola Literary Studio.
Kate Messner, author and educator, shares a TON of read alouds by herself and her author/illustrator friends. Hours of listening time!
Amazing author/illustrator Oliver Jeffers reads one of his own books a day for all home bound students.
Week 13 is also the “Dav Pilkey Gives You Super Reading Powers-Week”. With tons of creative activities.
Every day a famous actor reads a bed time story, done by the BBC: CBeebies Bedtime Story. Way more professional than the ones Sophie & Fleur shared with you! 😉
Our public library has an amazing section of e-books you can read on your tablet (for free), and AdLibris offers a wide range of e-books (fairly cheap) as well.
And that is only the tip of the iceberg! If you have come across amazing read alouds or reading focused activities, please share in the comment section below!
We will not have our usual board game session this week (Friday). We will pick that back up when more students are present at school. We will play the Once Upon A Time story telling card game instead, during the library lessons.
Please return all public library books that your child has borrowed via our school library. I would like to clear our ISGR school account with the public library, in case of school closure. Thank you for your cooperation!
