This week students will be inviting parents into their classrooms to share in the excitement of their learning.  A quick walk through the halls today allowed a sneak peek at some of the engaging things happening. I have intentionally kept the photos close up  so as not to ruin any of their proud surprises. Let's have a look... 

When your child is sharing their work, remember to ask them questions about the process, not just about the product.

What are you learning?

Why is this important to learn?

How do you know if you have done a good job?

How did you overcome any challenges?

Usborne Book Fair Coming to Douglasdale!

                                The Usborne Literacy Fair is Coming!

Monday, March 14th  – Friday, March 18th

We are very excited to announce we will be holding an Usborne Book Fair here at Douglasdale School.  Come and see Usborne’s award-winning range of entertaining and educational books for children from toddlers to teens!  The range of titles includes arts, crafts, science, history, nature, music, early readers, French, hobbies, sports, activity kits, adventure stories and puzzles.  We have many books which complement and enrich the Alberta Curriculum.  There will be over 300 books on display, including a selection from the more than 40 new titles released this year, and you will also have the chance to choose from over 1000 titles in the Usborne Catalogue.  Rather than taking the books home at once, the books will be ordered and delivered to school approximately 2 weeks later. Come and browse and get to know these outstanding books.

Your purchases will earn 25% of retail sales in free books for use in the school.
