Book swapping with a purpose: During the Christmas season, with the help of some wonderful moms of SIS, the Bayside Library opened a bookshop complete with couches, music and snacks. Students exchanged their gently used and read books for new ones or donated them for purchase with the proceeds going to Hurricane Haiyan Relief. It was a huge success with more than 250 titles donated or exchanged and over 300 rmb raised during this likely annual event.
Reflective Learning/Sharing: Grade 7 explored what are successful criteria for choosing an appropriate book and are not stopping there! Using stop-motion & animation they are storytelling their own metacognitive process through videos which will be shared on the library website. This will not only benefit them by learning through teaching, but also the rest of the SIS community as well!
