Students enjoy virtual story time

Emerson & Dr. F.W.L. Hamilton Schools
February 03, 2021

Patricia DeBruyn (WEB).jpgToday—February 3—is World Read Aloud Day, but for some students at Emerson School and Dr. F.W.L. Hamilton School every day is a read aloud day thanks to library technician Patricia DeBruyn. She's made it her mission to read storybooks to the Grade 1 and 2 students every day at 2:30 p.m., during their snack time.

She does it virtually through Microsoft Teams and this allows home learners to join in and enjoy story time, as well. The home learners enter the Teams chat five minutes earlier than the classroom students and this gives them a few minutes to talk with their friends before story time begins. It's a great way to keep home learners connected!
