MIDDLE SCHOOL BOOK FAIR
A very innovative program to encourage our children reading is organized by the Middle school on 19th June. Children were assigned to read books of their choice and are required to make a book review and at the same time share their reading material orally with their friends. This serves a duel purpose of getting into the habit of reading as reading is an essential part of language instruction at every level because it supports learning in multiple ways. Reading material is language input. By giving students a variety of materials to read, instructors provide multiple opportunities for students to absorb vocabulary, grammar, sentence structure, and discourse structure as they occur in authentic contexts. Students thus gain a more complete picture of the ways in which the elements of the language work together to convey meaning. Improving your reading skills will reduce unnecessary reading time and enable you to read in a more focused and selective manner. You will also be able to increase your levels of understanding and concentration.
These skills are very prominently revealed when they had their BOOK FAIR. Students are instructed to invite other students and staff to listen and interact with them. They feel very confident in explaining the gist of what they have read. Many of us listened to them and feel proud to see a big leap in their reading skills.
This would definitely be a trend setters for other educational institutions to improve our children’s reading habits.
