Boy's Reading Club

Enthusiastic boys joined the Reading Club at Shirley Street P.S. in the fall of 2003. The boys examined books of different genres - novels, optical illusions, puzzles and riddles. We studied the illustrations, story beginnings, made predictions and read to validate or change our predictions. The boys engaged in discussions about books and shared their insights and their interests.

In the spring, the boys worked cooperatively and planned a "Book, Bake and Toy Sale". It was a very successful venture! In the future, we anticipate the arrival of new boys to enjoy the pleasure of reading with.

The Boy's Reading Club is fortunate to participate in various literacy celebration events, such as the excursion to the Playdium. This joyous celebration included inspirational messages from athletes and writers. The boys articulated powerful messages promoting them to follow their dreams, stay in school and have confidence in their abilities!

We look forward to the continuation of the Boy's Reading Club at Shirley Street P.S.!
