Reading Link Challenge: literacy, collaboration & enthusiasm = Pure Fun!

Posted by Aron Campbell

​Chartwell Gr 4/5 ‘s returned to school on this bright Tuesday morning, post Spring Break, not with dragging feet and reluctant angst, but instead with the SPRING of reading excitement in their step!! It was time for our Reading Link Challenge, our own version of a Literary March Madness...so to speak!


The Reading Link Challenge involved a partnership between four West Vancouver Schools and the West Vancouver Memorial Library. It is a collaborative, fun, and engaging way to read books and answer questions in a ‘Battle of the Books’ format.

Through an ongoing close collaboration between Chartwell Teacher Librarian Doni Gratton and Michelle Yule, students in Divisions 5 and 6 were encouraged to read 6 selections of grade level titles including “The Strange Case of Origami Yoda” by Tom Angleberger to “Escape from Mr. Lemoncello’s Library” by Chris Grabenstein.

Posted by Aron Campbell

​“You can discover more about a person in an hour of play than in a year of conversation.”

-Plato


This coming Wednesday February 3rd, Chartwell Elementary will join over 149,000 other participating organizations in the Global School Play Day.

This will be in line with our second term official UN Day of Recognition in regard to Article #31 which states that each child has the “right to play and rest”. The Global School Play Day is in it’s second year and is gaining increasing momentum as the research around the act of play gains further traction in countless areas of child development studies. More and more of early learning research states that the act of play provides opportunities to allow children to learn valuable life skills and their success in this area can be strong predictor of future life success.
