Global Read Aloud
Our school will be participating in the Global Read Aloud again this year. 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. Mrs. Boyce will be reading the picture books in the library with our K-2 classes, and several teachers have chosen to participate in their classrooms. For more information about this initiative and to see the list of books selected this year, click here.
Reading Link Challenge
Noel Booth participates in an enrichment book club supported by the Fraser Valley Regional Library. Students in grades 4 and 5 are invited to read 6 novels and to study them in detail. We have had quite a bit of interest this year, which is wonderful! Students that have not yet let Mrs. Boyce know they are interested in participating, please stop by the library to sign up. Teams will be formed in mid-October and book selections will be revealed by a FVRL representative that will visit our school in November for the kick-off of this year’s challenge!
For Reading Link Challenge, students will play games to practice their book trivia in preparation for team competitions that take place from Feb-May. In teams of 3-6, they compete for the privilege of representing Noel Booth at the district challenge. For more information about this program, see the link to the FVRL page here. Congratulations to our 2017/2018 participants for all of their hard work at the district challenge last year. Although we didn’t bring home a win, they all worked hard, supported their teammates, and committed to reading.
Langley Book of the Year
Each year, new books are nominated for the Langley Book of the Year by a committee of Langley 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 the summer.

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. Nominees are still being suggested for this year, so stay tuned for an update!
