Forest of Reading: Silver Birch

The Forest of Reading program will begin in January 2019. Students in grades 3-5 will have the incredible opportunity to read Canadian authors – both French and English – and extend their reading prowess by reading as many of the selected books in 3 months. Sir Adam Beck has participated in this program for well over a decade. The Toronto Public Library Staff of the Alderwood branch partner with us to facilitate the program and together we add both fiction and non-fiction materials to our library written and illustrated by Canadian authors. Students in the grades mentioned above will be able to come twice a week during their lunch periods to choose books, read and re-select as necessary. The goal of The Forest of Reading program is to get as many students reading as many books from the selections listed below. If they read five titles in a given category they get to vote for their favourite book in April. Student voice is so important in this reading program that authors covet this beloved prize of being selected ‘best book’ by student readers.
