This week, I started sending home a bag with a llama (AM Class) or a Panda (PM Class) along with a writing journal inside of it.  Your child will have a couple of days with the stuffed animal.  Have your child do some kind of activity with the stuffed animal while you have it.  
This can be reading a book together, going to the park, going out to eat, etc.  You can take a picture, or have your child draw a picture, and glue it into the journal at the top where the page is blank.    Then you will help your child write about the activity.  Please make sure to have them write slowly so they can write on the lines correctly.  Remember to have them use spaces, capitalization, & punctuation correctly.  Please let me know if you have any questions.

A Message From Our Librarian

What is our Global Community?

Each year in the Q1 library, we like to encourage students to share their family’s heritage during our Global Literacy week.  In year’s past we’ve done a Diversity Quilt, which showed family traditions & flags representing the family’s origins.  We’ve also done a “Peace” wall to show the different languages in which our diverse population of students would say the word Peace.  This year I would like to display on a map where our students come from.  Show them a visual of our “Global Community” here at Quest.  By doing this we would like to know what State or Country your student was born, or if your student would prefer, where their family originates from.  We will then put their name on a “sticky” arrow & place them on the map.  I think this will be a fun way to show how diverse our student population is here in West haven, Utah. 

For responding, your students name will also be entered into a drawing to win a small prize here in the library.  There will be one winner per class.

It really is fun to see where we all originate from & have the students start thinking a little more Globally.  Also possibly finding a kinship with students from the same areas of the world.   

Thank you for participating! Here is the link to fill out your information.

Mrs. Anderson
