This year's Newbery Challenge kicked off on September 26 with Newbery Honor winning author Steve Sheinkin talking to the boys about his riveting non-fiction titles. Boys in Grade 5, 6, and 7 are invited to join in Adi's Newbery Challenge! Each time you read a book on the shortlist, just make a video in Canvas (you have a course called McNew) or fill out a Google form to record your opinion about the book. As always there are small prizes for every book finished! Read eight or more books and we will invite you to attend our Newbery Challenge. The challenge will end at midnight on Martin Luther King Day. Along the way we will have some prize drawings - see the Canvas calendar for details. We can't wait to talk to you about the terrific books on our shortlist. Adi's Newbery Challenge Fiction Response Form Adi's Newbery Challenge Nonfiction Response Form
Check out the three films about pharaohs that some 4th Grade boys made as part of their study of Egypt. They researched and co-wrote scripts, designed puppets, and did all their own filming and editing.
