Literacy at Our School

Staff, students and community members have helped to create a vibrant literacy experience at Queen Elizabeth School. It has been our mission to ensure that every child who requires help receives the necessary support to make them successful both at school and beyond.

Three years ago the staff was looking for a way to find more time in the day to work with students in small groups or individually. Through discussion we implemented a 25-minute RTI (Response to Intervention) block. Every day during RTI, teachers in all classrooms offer extra support on specific skills for individual students or small groups of students. The changing needs of our students dictate the focus of this structured time.

The collaborative efforts of teachers is a strong component of student success. Teachers meet together with a school-based team weekly to discuss what is working and what is not working with their students and as a group, they decide what actions need to be taken to help make that child successful.

With literacy always at the forefront, staff work collaboratively to design activities that are not only fun, but allow students to showcase their literacy skills!

There are a number of ways we showcase literacy at our school.

Early in the year, students in Grades 4-6 created “book spine poetry” and then took pictures of their final products.

During literacy week, students researched their favourite riddles so they could read them with the morning announcements! Some classrooms had students showcase their artistic skills by reproducing favourite book covers!

For the third year in a row, community members donated close to 2,000 new and lightly-used books where students then participated in a “Book Swap”. All students ended up with a number of books that they could keep!

It is also important that students get the opportunity to read every single day: they can bring books from home, choose from the various books that teachers have brought to the school, or they head to the school library’s never-ending collection.

Our school even set up a new permanent “Parent Book Exchange” for parents to drop off and to take books at no cost.

Our school also has a Literacy Card Program, where every time a student reads at home for 10 minutes, parents sign the card. When it is full, the card is returned to the office where it is then entered for various prizes at our monthly celebration assembly.
