“On February 24, 2016 Lit World encourages children, parents, teachers, other educators, and librarians to read aloud. Lit World’s World Read Aloud Day (#WRAD16) champions the importance of telling stories no matter where one is around the globe.”
Watch and listen to Karma Wilson read aloud from her book “Bear Snores On”.
“Every year, Canadians are invited to participate in Black History Month festivities and events that honour the legacy of black Canadians, past and present. Canadians take this time to celebrate the many achievements and contributions of black Canadians who, throughout history, have done so much to make Canada the culturally diverse, compassionate and prosperous nation it is today. During Black History Month, Canadians can gain insight into the experiences of black Canadians and their vital role in the community.” Resources include:
Seven short videos highlighting contributions of important historical figures and inventors.
Thanks to the organizers, families in attendance and our wonderful Teacher Librarian superheroes (including our planners and set up team) for an inspiring literacy event at today’s Riot of Reading. The Riot of Reading is an annual community event in Mission to celebrate Family Literacy Day.
We had so much fun exploring Reading Superpowers, sharing fictional and real-life superhero books, and discovering our Superhero names. Hanging out with Clifford was pretty cool too!
