Term 3 Library Displays on PhotoPeach
Book Week is fast approaching and Mrs Dickson has been busy! With some help from Melissa Sandow who completed her library studies placement with us last term, she has the collection of CBC shortlisted titles processed and ready for staff loan. Last term, I began looking at the Early Childhood books with a few classes and the children have begun to create some of their own art work based on these titles.
Over the holidays, the amazing Deb Sears created a lighthouse, complete with flashing light, and this has now been installed in the Library. It is based on the one featured in the Ronda Armitage picture book, The Lighthouse Keeper’s Lunch.
In addition, Mrs Dickson and Mrs Sears have hung a parachute and fabrics in our picture fiction space to create our “blanket cubby”. Thanks so much to you both for sharing your time, passion and talent!! The children have already been enjoying using the space at lunchtimes. Our displays will continue to grow over the course of the term as classes complete more art work based on the short listed titles.
Stay tuned for more information about our book character parade, literature quiz and visiting artists and authors.
