Tonight I am sending home information about literacy activities happening at Parkcrest and around Kamloops. Exciting and Fun events are happening in our community.
This Monday: Several classes have chosen to participate in the Unplug and Play challenge. Can we rise to this challenge??? I know we can! Students are asked to have less screen time (video games, TV etc) and spend more time reading. They will track their time and then next Monday bring in their papers.
Literacy Week runs Jan 21-25. Parkcrest will have activities happening each day.
We will hear Mr. Aziz read aloud a story each morning on the announcements
Classes will be writing a story. Each day classes will pass their story onto another class for them to continue on. On Friday we will get to hear the whole story.
Kamloops Blazers are coming to visit each class on Monday
All week students can bring in a ‘gently used’ book or a couple of books to go into a book swap. They will be given a coupon and then on Friday, students can go to the book swap and choose a new book.
After lunch each day the whole school will take part in DEAR (drop everything and read)
Friday- is “Dress as your Favourite Storybook Character” day
Thanks for your support everyone. This sounds like a very exciting week! If you have any questions, please feel free to email me at firstname.lastname@example.org or contact me at the school.
