John T. Tuck Public School wins Telling Tales Team Spirit Award
The Telling Tales author team, the Tale Tellers, challenged kids at the Kids Lit Quiz Canada Hamilton Heats held on January 24, 2018 at Hillfield Strathallan College. The Kids’ Lit Quiz has been inspiring and challenging young readers for over 25 years. They encourage kids to focus on teamwork, motivate readers and celebrate literature. Kids in Grades 5 to 8 work together in teams of four to answer questions based on books – it’s the perfect partnership with Telling Tales!
Students read books and study literary characters to prepare for a fun literary challenge where they are tested on their knowledge of stories, characters, authors and settings. The winning team – Lee Academy – went on to the National Finals in Toronto and are representing Canada at the World Finals in New Zealand. Stories really do take you anywhere!
Telling Tales is also proud to sponsor the Team Spirit Award
Congratulations to John T. Tuck Public School: Team 3. These students showed their literary team spirit through cooperation, respect and enthusiasm, and have won an author visit by Joanne Levy to their school.
