Literacy Week at Fairfield

Focusing on the Love of Reading!
All week students and staff have been engaging in a variety of literacy-based activities as we celebrated Fairfield Literacy Week from January 21 - January 25.  Classes participated in a Kick-Off Assembly (which we did have mid-week given the bus cancellations!), various read alouds, we had guest readers planned as well as a focus on rich mentor texts including "We're all Wonders" and "Be Kind". 

Thanks to First Book Canada and generous donations from our community, every Fairfield student went home with a new or nearly-new book.  Our cuddle up and read day on Friday was a big success with students enjoying the extra time to read favourite stories, wear their PJs, and develop greater understanding of reading strategies.

Family Literacy Day is Sunday January 27th, 2019 and World Read Aloud Day is Friday February 1, 2019.
