This is a great first post!
Welcome to the battle of the books blog. This is a great way to communicate with everyone!
Welcome to the Battle of the Books Blog! Reston School held their kick off this morning!
Happy New Year to everyone! We hope you all had a wonderful Christmas break and are all ready to continue on with the Battle. We look forward to you comments on the books we are reading.
This morning the Grade 5 & 6 classes came to library and we started things off with some fun reading and singing the new Footloose book! Thanks Mrs. McLeod for showing me that book, you are right you can't just read it you have to sing it. However right after having fun with Footloose everyone picked up the Battle book they were reading and it was quiet as a mouse in the library. Some very intense reading going on this morning!! Way to go guys!!
Now that song is in my head for the rest of the day! Aaaargh! I am glad your students enjoyed it as much as we do here at Elkhorn!
Ya it was lots of fun.
Glad you enjoyed it, now what do you think of one of the books you are reading?
That footloose was a really good book and i enjoyed it alot!
IT WAS ALOT OF FUN
I knew you were enjoying it!! Everybody cut footloose!
Our Oak Lake Battle of the Books Club is lots of fun and we are really looking forward to the Battle in March. We have 10 kids and have lots of enthusiasm! Our favourite books so far are Ghosts, And Then it Happened and Crazy Man.
I am so glad you are having fun with the Battle! I was in Oak Lake on Friday night watching hockey and I recognized some names of students who will be participating. I also saw them again on Sunday in Hartney and I had a chance to talk to Mr. Thiessen. It was a busy weekend for hockey but I am sure you all had time to get some reading done! I was busy this morning ordering our medallions for the Battle. It will be here before we know it! Glad to hear from you Oak Lake!!
Well this morning in library we read A Hero Named Howe together. As we were reading it I thought of several really good questions to use for the Battle.
A Hero Named Howe - I just looked at our blog page for this book and I don't see one comment yet! I will have a special little something on the day of the Battle for the first person to comment on this book!
Wow I just realized there is another book that needs a comment! First one to comment on this book will also get something special at the Battle.
Wow Oak Lake students were busy today commenting on our blog! It was great to hear from all of you!!!
