Hello, EMP families! We miss you all terribly and we hope you are all staying happy and healthy at home. If you and your children are needing a bit of a distraction, the Library Learning Commons is here for you! I have created a blog so that I’m able to better connect with our EMP families.
The Mo Willems Reading Project with Mme Zwick’s Grade 6/7s
Monday, January 20th, 2020
Books by author/illustrator Mo Willems are some of the most popular books in our library. Today Mme Zwick’s Grade 6/7 class will begin our Mo Willems Reading Project!
Through the Library Learning Commons, students will learn how to develop their Fluency and Expression through a series of lessons with co-developed criteria. In pairs, students will choose a Mo Willems book from our school collection to practice and study.
When ready, groups will record their reading of their chosen Mo Willems book and create a QR code to attach to the book cover. All students who sign out a Mo Willems book in the future can scan the code and have the book read to them by a student in Mme Zwick’s class.

Franken Toys: An After-school Workshop for Grades 5-7 students
Wednesday, January 8th, 2020
Our first after-school workshop of 2020 is “Frankentoys: A Take-Apart Workshop” starting Monday, January 13th and running through to Monday, February 3rd (4 sessions). In the workshop, students will analyze stuffed toys for the way the toys are constructed and carefully take the toys apart to preserve as many toy parts as possible for reuse. Furry exteriors, plastic eyes and internal moving mechanisms are valuable resources for mixing into unique creations — making brand new Frankentoys!
The Frankentoy Workshop is intended for students in Grades 5-7; 20 students maximum.
Time: After-school from 2:20 – 3:30, in the Library Learning Commons.
Duration: Monday, January 13th, 2020 to Monday, February 3rd, 2020.
CLASS IS FULL.
