Librarians report for the month of February

Librarians report for the month of February

Thank you so much for supporting the Book Fair and for participating in the coffeehouse.  February was 'I Love Reading' month and our students gave awards to books. Please ask your child about the Mouse Match story.  We sang rhymes such as Hungry, Hungry I am so hungry; I can eat 16 bananas and a purple plum. Please encourage your children to make their own rhymes by using the starter words, Hungry, Hungry I am so hungry. On February 15th we celebrated the National Flag Day of Canada. Ashmina Sumaru from Centre from Race and Culture did a presentation about the story of Canada.  I have posted notes about the library class on the following page.

In March, I will focus on the following.

·      March 1: Dr. Seuss birthday celebration

·      March 3: Hina-matsuri Japanese Doll Festival

·      March 4 - 10: Tech Week

·      March 6: Holi Festival of Colors
