Red Cedar Book Awards 2013: podcasts

Each year at Blair, the intermediate students have the opportunity to read the best of the best children's literature in British Columbia through the Red Cedar book award program. Thanks to generous financial support from the Blair PAC, this program is a long-standing tradition at Blair. Each year the students are exposed to both excellent information books and fiction titles. You can learn more about the Red Cedar program by clicking on this link HERE.
The students have been sharing about this books during their library sessions. The intermediate classes have been using the AudioBoo app on the iPads to create podcasts about books they are reading. 

Here are some podcasts you can listen to from some of our intermediate students from divisions 1:

Exiles from the War by a grade 7 student who shares why she likes this book that is in a diary format.
