Weekly Message #4-4

Go Moberly Mustangs!

Go Moberly Mustangs!

This year is all about reading and it seems that this week is all about BOOKS!  Five intermediate divisions will be attending the Wonder of Books at John Oliver this Wednesday.  This promises to be a big media event so tune in to the news that night for highlights!  We will be proud to see Kirat Dhesi from Div. 2 as one of the student emcees for the event.  Moberly students will also represent us in the Battle of the Books.  Thanks to Gwen and the classroom teachers who supported the students in practising and preparing for the big event.  If you are interested in seeing what the Battle of the Books looks like, please drop into the common session (6:30 – 7:00) on Wednesday where the students will give a short demo.

Also, this week, volunteers from “Books for Me” will be here all day Thursday to give out a free book to every Moberly student.  I will work on a schedule on Monday and put it in your boxes.  The book give-away will be in Henry and Maggie’s resource classroom next to the office.

Finally, on Friday, a group of grade 1 teachers will spend the day working together to refine their reading instruction.  Thanks to many of our resource team members who have agreed to cover the Grade 1 classes to allow the teachers to take advantage of this opportunity.

I came across a great teacher’s blog with a wonderful inspiring message.  Check it out at: http://thereisabookforthat.com/2013/09/15/20-years-20-things/

This blog is written by someone who has been teaching for 20 years, telling 20 things that inspire her teaching.  The blog itself is also a great resource for good books to use with kids.
