We recently held our first reading class of 2012, designed for children in the community to develop an interest in reading and to practice their reading skills. We initially planned to accommodate 20 to 30 students, but only 10 ended up making the class.
I was particularly touched during the introductory activity, when the children were asked to draw a picture of their mothers and share one thing they did with them. Then, we gave the children a book to read, and discussed what the main character in the story did with her family. This prompted the kids to ask questions and compare their activities at home with the ones they read in the book. Although this was a simple exercise, it piqued the children's interest for the rest of the session. Without a captivating beginning, it is easy for the children to quickly lose interest!
Overall, most of the students had a wonderful time. Thank you! We will continue to work hard in the future.
