Friday was a fun and busy day for the students of 4AS. Everyone dressed up as one of their favourite book characters and participated in a morning filled with related activities that included a book character journey, hunt, and parade. I was pleased with the high level of enthusiasm and commitment our students displayed when celebrating books and literature.
The highlight of our afternoon activities was 30 minutes of buddy reading with 1MH. Each 4AS student was paired with a Grade 1 student to read several picture books together. It was wonderful to see how caring and open-minded the 4AS students were during the activity. Hopefully we can make buddy reading a regular activity during the remainder of the year.
