DEAR time 4C class, October 22 at the library

Drop Everything and Read time at the library celebrated by 4C teacher and students during the School Library month celebration. Students read for fifteen minutes in the library and then went to their classroom and wrote whatever thoughts which came top of mind for five minutes about the pages they read. Mr. Currie is a very creative teacher and uses 'I PICK' method of encouraging his students to select books during the library class.
