2018 Reading Olympics

Wells Thong Lo Mystery Reader

K3A Mystery Reader

To kick off our Reading Olympics month the K3s celebrated with our very first Mystery Reader! We would like to give a great big thank you to Ms. Jessica Teal one of our former teachers here at Wells for stopping by and reading “The Story of Ferdnand”.
The students were intrigued by how Ms. Jessica used her authentic Cuban accent to make the story come to life.
 There will be many more adventures that await us during our Reading Olympics month. So please continue to join us on our journey.

K3A Mystery Reader

As part of reading month, parents were invited and encouraged to come to class to read stories. The students had fun guessing who the reader might be and were pleasantly surprised at some of the volunteers who arrived at their door.
K3C were joined by Peter Meldrum, the father of Max Meldrum, who read them the classic Dr Seuss tale of The Lorax. The story was written in 1971 and addresses how factories and industry can affect the environment. Still a very apt subject in our day and age, about which the children had many questions.
Thank you Mr. Meldrum for your great reading, K3C thoroughly enjoyed it.  
Reading month continues until the end of March. Please feel free to contact the homeroom teachers if you would like to volunteer. We would love to accommodate you!

Author’s Tea – Grade 1B 

Students from Grade 1B engaged in a writing project that integrated the mathematical concept of even numbers. First, students read the story, My Even Day by Doris Fischer and were inspired to create their own animals with even parts.

Next, they used their creations as characters for a narrative. This was followed by a period of 2 weeks, in which students worked on editing and revising their work. Finally, students published their very own book.

In order to celebrate our students’ perseverance and motivation, we invited parents for an afternoon of stories and snacks. Parents visited every student in the class and provided positive feedback for them.

The Author’s Tea objectives were to continue to motivate students to work in long term projects, nurture creativity, encourage students to learn from mistakes, enhance reading fluency, and promote pride on student work, all while still focusing on writing conventions and the understanding of even numbers. Job well done Grade 1B.
