Beechy School celebrates Family Literacy Week

Family Literacy Week was held January 24-30 in Saskatchewan and Sun West schools celebrated the week in a number of creative ways Beechy School celebrated Family Literacy Week with a "Reading at Home" photo contest, an author visit from Ruth Wellborn for the K-6 students and two days of Virtual Reality (VR) with Technology Coach Doug Klassen! Each of the classes from K-9 chose a Google Expedition and explored the world with VR. The local School Community Council awarded a prize basket as part of the Reading at Home Challenge.

The grade 3-4 class and the grade 7-8 class also took their literacy activities further with a shared Teams meeting experience. The Grade 7-8 class read their Fairy Tale Parodies to the younger students and then the Grade 3-4s read their own fairy tales to their older partners! The hallways were buzzing with excitement as our budding authors shared with one another. Beechy School had a great week! The video below captures some of the excitement!
