“March is Reading Month”!

Dear Parents,

  EIB Monceau will be holding its first edition of ‘March is Reading Month’ to be held during the entire month of March and encouraging reading across the school.

During this event, which takes place during the United States’ National Month of Literacy, the school will be promoting reading in all languages.

WHAT'S ON THE PROGRAMME?

The students from the EIB Monceau are invited to complete reading challenges at home throughout March. To do this, children follow along using the age-appropriate calendars below which will guide them through their daily reading challenge. 

For younger children, from Nursery (or Preschool) to Year 2 (or Grade 1), children will be helped with reading by a family member.

To access the calendar for younger children: 

For the older ones, from Year 3 (or Grade 2) to Year 6 (or Grade 5), children are invited to take on a reading challenge on their own every day at home! 

To access the calendar for the older ones: 

WHAT'S ON THE PROGRAMME IN THE CLASSROOM?

  • On the first day, children will draw the cover of their favourite book with their English teacher. The book covers will be displayed in the main entrance of Vigny and Van Dyck.

  • Students will be discussing their favourite books and doing related activities during the English classes to celebrate reading. 
  • On Thursday, March 21st 2019 at 14:00, the entire school will participate in ‘D.E.A.R.’ (Drop Everything and Read).  At this time, students, teachers and all EIB Monceau staff members will stop what they are doing to read for 15 minutes!
  • Parents will be coming to read to the children as "Mystery readers"
  • Finally, groups of students who have the same English hours will read together in pairs: Year 4 (or Grade 3) with Year 1 (or Kindergarten), Year 6 (or Grade 5) with Year 2 (or Grade 1) and Year 5 (or Grade 4) with Reception (or Pre-Kindergarten).
