I miss everyone coming to the learning commons this year but I am excited to visit everyone in their classrooms. I will be delivering books for you to read that will stay in the class. We also want to have some fun: reading, building, and imagining, while I am in the class too.
Don't forget if you want to see what books are available at our school or place a hold on a book that you want to read, visit the library website, destiny.lethsd.ab.ca or click on this shortcut, Destiny . You can hold one or two books at a time. From the Division main page, click on Lakeview and log in with your school email and pasword. When you have found the book you want, click 'hold it'. I will bring it to your class when it is available.
Anytime is a good time for a book! Try to read every day. Read to yourself or read to someone else. Read to a pet or a stuffed toy or have someone read to you. Reading helps spark imagination and stimulate curiosity. It helps to develop your brain, your ability to focus, your concentration. It builds social skills and communication skills. It is enjoyable!
Who doesn't love to throw a paper airplane? I try my best, but my planes rarely fly very well. It doesn't matter, it is fun to watch it zig zag all over the place. Sometimes it does fly straight and I am the one jumping up and down as mine flies the farthest! Why don't you try to see how far a plane, that you built, can fly? There are so many types of planes, some easy to build and some, quite challenging. Build your own design or you can click Fold 'N Fly for some patterns.
