Reading Corner at Bei Yao Wan

A reading corner has been set up especially for the summer at Beiyaowan. About twenty three children ages 6-15 years come on Mondays and Thursdays from 8 am to 10 am. The children come to choose the book that they would like to read, to jot down notes and vocabulary and to do some sharing, followed by arts & craft activities.
Through the process, the sharing session has become very creative and lively and the children have become more confident. Some of them express that through reading, they had learnt new things; through sharing, they felt they have become wiser.
In order to attract more children to join, our teacher Lin has introduced a variety of art works or games such as sand painting and action songs.
Despite the hot weather, the children are active. They are reminded to drink water when they were thirsty and to splash water on their faces when they are hot . They really enjoy themselves and don’t want to go home when the time is up!
