One never gets too old for picture books. Each year 10 books are nominated by Surrey librarians for Picture Book of the Year. Students and teachers then vote, rating each book on a 5 star scale. The favorite from all the voting is awarded the title Picture Book of the Year. Students took time today reviewing and discussing some of these books. Tomorrow they will have a chance to finish this off and our voting with be submitted. I wonder which book will win this year?
1) Lit Circles - continue to read and work on assignments
2) Math - retest for both grade 6 and 7s - To clarify -
****Mr. Harrington's grade 7s - Mr. Harrington will not be giving the test to all the students - just those that wish to improve their grade. Please make sure your first test is at school tomorrow as Mr. Harrington will need to record all the marks. Mrs. Farrell is a bit busy so cannot share these with him.
3) For Friday bring gardening gloves and a spade (small shovel) if you have one
Riddle: I'm as big as a castle, and lighter than air, but 100 men cannot move me. What am I?
Comment: At the end of each picture book did you and your partner(s) share your thoughts and opinions about each book such as what you liked and what you didn't like? Share some of your thoughts of what you have read so far.
I am a grade 7 teacher who has been teaching in the Surrey School District for over 28 years. I love to read, garden, walk, and spend time with family, friends and my golden retriever Kona.
