Week 48: Winter Tales

Dear Readers,

Snow has fallen, temperatures are below zero. I can’t think of a better time to, after you’ve been outside for some play time, curl up on the couch with a hot chocolate and a good book!

General Library News

If all goes according to plan, UPS will deliver our Scholastic Book Club orders this Wednesday. In ten boxes! On Friday, when there are no students in the building, all the books will be sorted out into the separate orders you have placed. Next week during their library lesson, your child(ren) will receive their ordered books. Hurray!!!

Sophie has discovered a great resource about children’s books in Swedish: Svenska Barnboksakademin. They are a group of people who support authors and children’s literature. Their goal is to inspire people to read. For their English website, click HERE. They’ve created beautifully illustrated “17 reasons to read” resources, which are inspirational for all readers – parents, teachers and children.

The new Storytime magazine is here, and with that comes a new pack of resources. You can read more about this issue, and the stories behind the stories, on their blog HERE.

We have planned our next Board Game Afternoon! It will take place on the last Friday of term, December 17th. You can bring your own game and ISGR friends, or you can join in with one of our games and make new friends! We hope to see many of you there!

PYP Library Times

We will start each library lesson with a book talk about our new non-fiction titles. We’ve recently acquired several great fact book series, published by World Book: Cool Tech series, Your Favorite Brand series and Robot series.

This week, we will focus our read aloud sessions on the following questions:

What is your favorite character in this story, and why?

What is your least favorite character in this story, and why?

Where is this story set? (Where does this story take place?)

What new words have you learned during this read aloud session?

We are looking forward to some great discussions!

Happy Reading!
