South Learning Centre – Intergenerational Learning

What a great experience for youth and adults!

This is a fantastic learning opportunity covering generations. E-book Club children became experts to share their knowledge and learning with some older adults. A little daunting for the older adults perhaps, but they took it all in their stride, and discovered how adaptable the younger generations are with technology. They shared OverDrive Library app and had lots of fun sharing TumbleBook Library. As a thank you gesture, the children shared their hand-made pop-up cards.

Fly Away Home by Eve Bunting

Fly Away Home by Eve Bunting

A picture book about a boy and his father that are homeless and how they survive day to day. A great book to use when discussing a social issue such as poverty. Many different activities one could do with their class on inferring. I could see this being used between Grade 3-8 in a variety of ways. How would you integrate this book into your classroom?
