Parents visit St. Paul for Family Literacy Day


January 30, 2015 - Mme Wright's grade 2/3 French Immersion class invited parents to participate in some Family Literacy Day activities.

There were four different activities set up. The first was a read-aloud of the book entitled "The Book With No Pictures" by B.J. Novak. Everyone soon discovered that a book does not have to have illustrations for it to be a fun and entertaining read. The Book With No Pictures left everyone in giggles - especially when it was read by the adults!

The second station had the students share the books they created using the Book Creator App on the iPads. Students also taught the guests how to legally copy images from the internet to use in their own writing. They wrote their own riddles and knock-knock jokes at the next center. Finally, at the fourth station, they had some fun playing Bananagrams and Scrabble, two "word creating" games.

Afterward, the guests joined the students in their classroom for lunch. What a wonderful way to celebrate Family Literacy Day!
