AO1 Reading time!15 janv. 2017
Who reads books lives twice. However, children who did not use to listen to stories in their childhood are unlikely to enjoy this pastime when they grow up. It is reading which develops their personality and spurs their imagination. In order to celebrate the World Day of Teddy Bear primary school teachers and librarians organized numerous activities, Children took part in various contests, solved puzzles and listened to stories read by older students. Excerpts from Winnie the Pooh and A Bear Called Paddington were read aloud. Each of the students was appointed one role and did their best trying to embody their protagonist. Next the children were asked to illustrate the scene they enjoyed the most. All the drawings were collected and exhibited in the school hall as well as all the posters made by them to encourage people to reading. The kids were excited and curious and the older ones felt important and instrumental in this activity too. They realized how difficult it is to manage kids, but, on the other side, they could see that reading worked its magic.
