K3A Mystery Reader
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.
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.
