Starting today, our school will be embarking on a special project, an all-school book club called One School, One Book.Every family will receive a copy of the same book- Patrick Skene Catling’s The Chocolate Touch- and will be asked to read it together at home over the next few weeks. I am personally asking you to make the time so that your family can participate in this special activity. Today your child should come home with the book, a letter about the program and a schedule. We are asking you to read a chapter each night we are in school.
In school, your child will be invited to answer daily trivia questions to encourage and reward attentive listening. You will soon find that your child will take pride in knowing and anticipating the details of the s tory. In class, students will explore the book through activities and discussion. You will want to make sure your family keeps ups so that your child can be included. Throughout the month, everyone will be talking about The Chocolate Touch.
We also have each chapter recorded and available on our YouTube channel that you can access from our website and Facebook.Many community members and staff have volunteered to read each chapter. You will be pleasantly surprised. Most chapters have two choices of readers.You will enjoy each chapter as you listen to surprise guests read chapters for your family. There’s no reason you can’t listen to each chapter twice. Click on the links below for chapter 1. Additional chapters will be added as needed.
