York Region Reads!

Thank you to our network partner Fossil Hill Public School for sharing this post:

The York Region Reads program begins April 4, 2012. Information about the program can now be found at www.yrdsb.edu.on.ca.  The York Region Reads! Program was also featured in newspapers across the district last Thursday. Check out http://www.yorkregion.com/news/article/1325916–york-students-interact-on-titanic-tragedy to read all about it, and see some fabulous pictures of students reading, building and talking!

There’s also a fantastic moodle site to further engage YRDSB students with other readers from across the district.  Students can write a review!  Do they have some questions for Gordon?  They can share them online and join the discussion! http://moodle.yrdsb.ca/course/view.php?id=16017

*The April edition of National Geographic, both in print and online, will be focused on the Titanic.*
