Keep Reading All Summer Long with E-Books!
All books are due back in the library on May 26th but there are plenty of opportunities to read this summer! If you haven’t been to the Central Library near Victoria Park it’s FANTASTIC! I highly recommend getting a library card and being a regular visitor this summer. There are also book stores around Hong Kong, with the new addition of Eslite in Causeway Bay. If you haven’t been there, give it a visit. It’s an awesome book store!
And there’s always ebooks! Popular fiction ebooks can be found on OverDrive, fantastic picture books are at TumbleBooks, nonfiction titles are on Destiny Discovery and Big Universe has both fiction and nonfiction titles. Many of the nonfiction titles on Destiny Discover are interactive with videos, links, GoogleMaps, quizzes, etc. Very fun! All our e-books are available all day, everyday and they’re FREE!
For a complete introduction to OverDrive, check out this blog post. Quick reminders: your username and password are both your student number. Yup, same number twice. Super simple! OverDrive has a great collection of popular fiction titles including Diary of a Wimpy Kid, books by David Walliams, Big Nate and more! Books available: beginner chapter books through grade 12.
Very interesting visit to Hong Kong Academy to see their Exhibition. Lots of great questioning from 6E to support them and great to see how other school approach this special time. (LINK to folder of photos)

Last Book Club for the Year
All students have their books and are in groups to share each Monday. The presentation gives you an idea of the sorts of things we will be discussing.
This week we are taking notes about the ideas of the book and how the author describes interesting details by ‘showing’ us rather than just telling us.
Great Information session this mng about the G6- G7 Transition. LINK
Have fun with it, be it big or small
