This Thursday 17 January 2019, our Early years and Elementary students took part in “Shopping for Books”. No money was required! Children chose a book that is a little too difficult for them to read now but they would like to be able to read by the beginning of the 3rd term. Back in class, the students worked with their homeroom teachers to set goals to help them reach the reading level of the book they have chosen.
The activity is to designed to help students to take some responsibility for their own reading development. Why not ask them about the book they have chosen and the goals that they have set for themselves? Watch out for news about the conclusion of this activity in April! Let’s go for it!
