If you haven’t already visited this year’s kids’ site, be sure to move on over to www.bcsrc.ca!
Once again, thanks to the incredible efforts of Shayne Letain and Neil Firkins, a bunch of “Motion Commotion!” is happening over at www.bcsrc.ca! Children and their families are invited to join in the fun by visiting their local library. As well, at www.bcsrc.ca, they have lots of options for interaction, for creativity, and to develop their literacy and digital literacy skills.
Meet Team Motion Commotion’s Leo DaVinci and J-Cat
Visit Leo’s Lab
The French page is accessible via a direct link in the top right-hand corner, above the menu bar. (When on the French page, the English link is in the same location.)
Links across the bottom include the Colouring Sheets, Booklists (coming), the DIY t-shirt images, and the staff site.
Leo’s Creator Club
In Leo’s Creator’s Club children are invited to write a story or draw a picture and submit to the site.
Some of the prompts include:
- Imagine that you are an inventor of Movement Machines! What would you invent? Describe your invention and how it works.
- Imagine your perfect laboratory or creation space. Describe it in a story!
- What do you like to make most? Short stories? Comics? Drawings? Animation? Movies?
Leo wants to see what you make!
This is a perfect activity to share with teachers in your communities looking for a fun end-of-year activity that bridges the connection between school and the Summer Reading Club.
Each submission is reviewed for content, and then usually published on the site within 24 hours (or less). For more info on our Guiding Principles for approving submissions to bcsrc.ca please see the last section under “About Us” on the Staff Site.
