Library – What would you love to read?
June 28 - June 30
Sometimes students require assistance in selecting a book. In this activity, students were given suggestions on how to choose a book. They were able to identify their reading level, ensuring that they choose a book that was appropriate for them.
Various storybooks were arranged in a circle in the library during this activity. Children were instructed to stand near the books in front of them. When the teacher called go, the students moved in a circle around the books, looking at all of them. When the teacher said “stop,” students came to a halt, sat near the book in front of them, and continued to refer to it. Students were told to refer to the book’s title, author, illustrator, and cover page.
They were instructed to open the book to any page and begin reading.
Students were instructed to count on their fingers every time they came across a word they couldn’t read or didn’t know the meaning of. If there were more difficult words than they could count on their fingers, they could stop reading. Children then chose another book in the next round. After four to five cycles, the children go over the books, determine which one they enjoyed best, and issued that book for their personal reading.
