February…the shortest, busiest month!

Well the Fall passed by in a blur and we are now already into February! A what a busy month it is. This upcoming Monday is Family day and many of us are talking about how diverse families can be! Drop in to see our display of books when you get a chance. Many of our families will also be celebrating Lunar New Year this weekend.

Then Valentine’s Day and Hundredth Day for our primary students is just around the corner!

Feb. 24th Moberly will be celebrating Pink Day, a day to think carefully about how we treat each other, how we can be kinder and more accepting of our classmates, and most importantly how we can all help to stop bullying in our schools. The library will have lot’s of books available on bullying and what to do if you ever yourself in that situation at school.

And last but certainly not least, February is also a time when we celebrate Black History Month. Looking for some great historical literature? Come see me!

Phhewwww, I’m tired just writing about all these exciting events. Looking forward to celebrating with you Moberly!

Graphic Novels

Div.’s 4 and 7 FINALLY finished our graphic novels! It was a long project and we worked very hard to learn the different features that they include, such as speech bubbles, varying viewpoints, frames, captions, motion and so much more. Here’s some examples of the excellent work we did.

Thank you to Jasmin and Yukie for sharing their graphic novels with the school(click on their names to see the full deal)!

Comic maker

Div.’s 4 & 7 have been working hard on their Graphic Novels. After completing them we decided to try doing some digital versions as well.

We’ve been using Bit Strips for School but you can make your own comics through their general site by clicking here. Anyone can play around and make new characters, change speech bubbles or play with character movement. If you want to save though you’ll have to sign up with an email or facebook account.

Stay tuned for some of our finished products!

Wings of Fire

We now have all the books from the “Wings of Fire” series by Tui T. Sutherland! (Thanks Akshmeet for the request 🙂 )

The seven dragon tribes have been at war for generations, locked in an endless battle over an ancient, lost treasure. A secret movement called the Talons of Peace is determined to bring an end to the fighting, with the help of a prophecy—a foretelling that calls for great sacrifice.  (-summary courtesy of Scholastic.com)
