The Book of the Month is a book chosen to share in our school community each month. Every month classroom teachers will be given a new book.
Resources for sharing each book will be found on this wiki every month. Some of the resources might include activities, vocabulary, maps, themes, author's bio, etc. Classroom teachers can use these resources to enrich the reading of the book to our students.

Purpose for the Book of the Month -
  • to build a school culture around reading and discussing books
  • to provide a model for school-wide engagement in reading, writing, listening and speaking
  • to give students the opportunity to respond to literature and share these responses with each other
  • to create the opportunity for the whole school to discuss important issues
  • to provide a common language for important issues
