This time was fun as the kids already were sitting in a circle. It was much easier to interact with them that way. Roselyn started first and talked about the theme of the week. The theme of the book weeks was Peace. So she integrated the peace theme in her poetry.
After that, I asked them all to sit down and write down on a special paper the library team made up for them, to write down what peace meant. Everybody then wanted to show us what they wrote.
This is one special class and I really loved playing with them expressing the term of peace. Roselyn was very kind, but direct with the kids and that was a great example for me how to deal with these little people.
If you would like to see some explanation about her poetry book, please click here. This was an interview conducted with one of our local newspaper.
Tomorrow I’m going to share the story of the youngest writer that was in the team. So, don’t miss out on that tomorrow. Do you have book week in your town or city? Please share in the comments below.
This is such a fantastic activity. I have loved books since I first learned to read, and a part of that is thanks to activities like this one that were put on at school and the local library. Getting to interact with patient, and passionate teachers makes all the difference, it helped me love learning as a child and I think it's so great that you are helping do that for the next generations!
What a great activity to get the students interacting. And, you certainly handled the boy labeled with ADHD very well. They can add some fun to the class as it is difficult for them to stay focused.
Yes it was so much fun to interact with them. They just need more attention and care and the creativity of them comes out. Thanks for reading 🙂
Maybe you should join a program like this in your town or city. Your love for reading can be an impact on other too. Thanks for stopping by 🙂
