Pictures from I Read Canadian Day, and Upcoming Online Book Fair



HHCS had a great day on Friday as we celebrated I Read Canadian Day- our reward day for reaching our reading goals for the Accelerated Reader program for Term 2.  We dressed up in Canadian colours or as famous Canadians or characters from books written by Canadian authors.  We read Canadian books and played Canadian games and quizzes and learned trivia facts about our country.  We watched interviews with Canadian authors and illustrators.  And we spent time outside in our Canadian winter- eating snacks and reading books by the bonfire, and playing out in the snow!  What a great day!
