Noel Booth participates in an enrichment book club supported by the Fraser Valley Regional Library. Students in grades 4 and 5 have been invited to read 6 novels and to study them in detail. Students will play games to practice their book knowledge in preparation for team competitions that take place from Feb-May. In teams of 3-6, they will be competing for the privilege of representing Noel Booth at the district challenge in early spring.
This year, we will be running this program virtually! If you are in grade 4 or 5 and have not yet signed up but are interested in participating, please see Mrs. Boyce in the Library Learning Commons.
Each year, new books are nominated for the Langley Book of the Year by a committee of Langley teachers and librarians.
To be eligible to vote for their favourite book each April, students in grades 4-7 must read three or more books. They are encouraged to read as many books as possible to make the vote even more meaningful. After completing a book, each student must answer a question or two about the story. Those students that read 8 or more books will also be invited to an ice cream social in June.
Stay tuned for further information on the Langley Book of the Year and a list of this year’s titles!
Langley Picture Book of the Year
Primary students also have a chance to choose their favourite books each year. In the library and in our classrooms, we will share all of the nominated picture books with our primary students and give them the opportunity to vote for their favourites. Stay tuned for this year’s nominees!
Some of our classrooms will again be participating in the Global Read Aloud. This is a project that allows schools and individual classrooms to make global connections by discussing and sharing a single novel or set of picture books as students from around the world do the same. For more information about this initiative, a list of participating schools, and to see the list of books selected this year, click here.
