Reading Link Challenge
Noel Booth participates in an enrichment book club supported by the Fraser Valley Regional Library. Students in grades four and five are invited to read six novels and to study them in detail. For a list of this year’s novel selections, click here. Students play games to practice their book trivia in preparation for team competitions that take place from Feb-May. In teams of six, 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 this 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, students 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. This year we are also placing stickers on our bulletin board to keep track of what is being read. Take a look outside the library to see which books our staff and students have read so far! In late April, any student from Grade 4-7 may vote for his/her favourite book and we will announce the winner.
For further information on the Langley Book of the Year please see Mrs. Boyce or Ms. Stiles in the library. The district website also has a list of the books that have been nominated for 2017-2018, as well as some author background and videos. Click here to find out more about this year’s nominees!
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. Click here for a list of the nominees for this year’s Langley Picture Book of the Year! Votes are being collected from all Langley schools for this year’s winning book. Stay tuned for an update soon!
Thank you to all of the families that participated in the book swap this year! It is always wonderful to see our students excited about reading and give some old books new life.
