January is 'I Love To Read Month' at Ecole Robert Browning.  We are enjoying many special reading events and activities.  There was a 'J'aime lire' kick off assembly on Jan. 9.  'Wacky Word Friday' was on Jan. 16.  The students and teachers of Room 2-11 wore 225 words on our clothing!   Friday, Jan. 23 is 'Red, White and Read Friday' when students can wear red and/or white clothing to school and we will celebrate Canadian authors.  Thursday, Jan. 29 is 'Beach Day'.  Students are invited to dress for a day at the beach!  That evening is a 'Beach Party' for Literacy Evening in the school gym from 6:00 to 7:00 p.m.   Finally Friday, Jan. 30 is 'Pyjama Day' when students can wear their comfy PJ's, housecoat, slippers etc. and bring one stuffie to school if they like.   We will be having a very special presentation by the Prairie Theatre Exchange entitled 'Munsch upon a Time' from 2:00 to 3:00 in the school gym. We are looking forward to all of these fun filled literary activities!

Parents/grandparents are invited to come to the classroom and read a favourite story to the class during the last 2 weeks of I Love to Read Month.  Please email Mme Kirk at if you would like to be a guest reader in room 2-11.

The students have been doing a fantastic job doing their home reading and exchanging their books on a regular basis. Keep up the great work!

Happy reading!
