  • Get Caught Reading - roving reporters took pictures of students reading throughout the week.
  • Literacy Spirit Day - students were invited to dress up as their favourite author or character in a book.
  • Book Swap - students and teachers brought in books to swap.

Tuktoyaktuk

The Mangilaluk School celebrated NWT Literacy Week by kicking off their Bookworm Challenge. The Bookworm Challenge encourages students of all ages to read. Every time a student reads a book they add a piece to the bookworm. The goal is to make a bookworm that goes right around the school.

The Tuk Child Development Centre hosted a reading program for NWT Literacy Week. They took pictures of all the children reading and put them up around the centre.
