One School, One Book
This year marks Columbia School's eighth annual One School, One Book!! In past years, we have read such books as Charlotte's Web , The One and Only Ivan , Charlie and the Chocolate Factory , and Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone , altogether as an entire school community!
This year, we have selected The Wizard of Oz by L. Frank Baum as our book to enjoy together. Some of you may have already read the book, or watched the movie, but now you get to do it again, knowing that everyone else is reading the same book as you! Every family in Columbia School will receive their very own copy to keep, thanks to the Columbia School SCC and UNIFOR Local S1!!!
Attached, you will find a calendar outlining the expected reading you will do together as a family . This book is to be read aloud by an adult or older sibling with everyone listening together . Look at this as time well spent together as a family, enjoying good literature at the same time! The first chapter has been read aloud in your child's classroom, but you may wish to read it together to keep up with what is happening in the story.
Each morning, the students will listen for a trivia question announced following Oh Canada. They will have the chance to record their answer and enter for daily prize draws. Only correct answers will be entered into the daily draws.
Throughout the month, classes may wish to take part in various little activities as each chapter is discussed. The One School, One Book team is also considering different ways to celebrate the ending of our book. In the past, we have had a school wide event with various activities going on, but this year will have to look different. More information to follow at a later date.
Special thanks to Columbia School SCC, UNIFOR Local S1 and SaskTel for their support in our One School, One Book!
