The 10 and The 10 DS Literacy Resources

2015 Is Going To Be A Great Year- Happy New Year!

Another shipment of Cenovus sponsored literacy resources arrived over the holidays and I finished sorting them out into piles for distribution to the schools on Monday. These 1700 books are made up of a selection of 17 titles from the two series called "The 10" (Grade 4-8) and "The 10 Discovery Series" (Grade 6-10) which are cross curricular in nature. Each title has 6 copies of the book so that small group work can take place either in a guided reading type of format or a shared reading type of format. Please check with your administrators, as to the location of these resources within your schools, as all ten schools in the district received this resource.

These books are high interest, lower reading level books that can capture many students' imaginations regardless of age, while assisting teachers in covering curriculum outcomes in many content areas.

Have a lovely weekend!
