With our ISGR Lucia celebration today, the light festival season has started!
There are many (new!) books in the library about different light festivals or stories set in snowy landscapes. We will lay them out for the students, and they are welcome to check them out! It’s the perfect time of the year for a cozy read during these long, dark evenings.
Sophie is cataloging her way through tons of wonderful books (both donated and recently purchased).
These books are now ready to be checked out!
There was no way we were going to be able to keep Dog Man hidden in our office until the Graphics release in January.
The Dog Man books are now officially in circulation!!! We have got Book 1 – 7.
Wow, how much fun was the Winter Bazaar! So much work, time and effort has been put in, no doubt about that. And well worth it. Thank you, PTA!
Okay, back to library business!
This week’s IB key concept is “causation”. We will be connecting these with our Read Alouds. I will also share the results of the Creative School voting (also connected to causation!).
Board Games on Friday, December 6th (14.30 – 15.30). Come one, come all! We will be playing Settlers of Catan, but there will be other games available as well. You can bring in your own game too. The board game session after that is on Monday, December 16th (the last one of the term!).
Winter is here, and so we have changed our displays into winter wonder reading land! As well as new books for the Swedish Fiction section. The Splej book has been gifted to all LGRP 3 students, and we have purchased the rest of the series – so they can continue reading the story.
Our blog post is short and sweet this week. Happy Reading!
… with new books in our library! Swedish novels and lots of new Rainbow Readers.
And an updated Word and Quote of the week. Related to our Creative School democratic process, and our key concept “connection” this week.
Have a great rest of the week (swimming days!).
Last week’s spread of SDG comics, new novels and the Ten Tales of Different Cultures picture books.
First things first: Board Games on Monday, November 25th! We will be playing Dixit, but other games (chess, Tsuro, story cubes, etc.) will be available as well. You can bring your own game and friends, or try a new game and meet new friends! See you at 14.30 in the library! (Until about 15.30).
Next week’s key concepts Connection will be explored through the lens of voting for Creative School activities. This is the time of year when we apply for the Creative School funding (Skapande Skolan, through the National Council of the Arts). If our action plan and application is approved, we will receive a grant with which we can organize creative workshop and activities for the students. It is a democratic process, which means that the student are asked to vote on what kind of creative/arts activities they would like to participate in, as well as which author or literary genre they are interested in. The voting will happen in both the LGRP and PYP section, as this is a whole school project. The actual events will happen in the school year of 2020 – 2021.
The Friday classes have already voted, since they will be swimming next week on Friday!
We have four more weeks left until the Winter Break. In week 51 (the last week before the break), students are only returning books. Students can check out books again after the break. This is also when we release our new books in the updated Graphic Section! More information about that in January.
