Reading session dedicated to the World Book and Copyright Day - 23rd April
The magical world of books
The celebration is dedicated to the World Book and Copyright Day – 23rd April
Reading session in Bulgarian, English and French languages with the participation of students, parents and teachers
Class: 3rd B class
Students from 3rd B class and their teacher, Mrs Slavina Kangalova, took part in this activity in the framework of the International Project Learn to Read and Read to Learn. These students are amongst the most regular visitors in the school library. The third graders organised the celebration dedicated to the books which they had studied in class – Antoine de Sainte- Exupéry’s “The Little Prince”, “The Wonderful Wizard of Oz” by L. Frank Baum, “Three Funny Friends” by Eno Raud and “Winnie the Pooh” by A.A. Milne. They had been working on the books for months.
On the day of the event, each student read an excerpt from their favourite book, talked about the author and their favourite characters, shared what they had learned from the text. An excerpt from “Winnie the Pooh” was read in both Bulgarian and English languages by Cecilia, Elena, Dorothea and Borislav, and an excerpt from “The Little Prince” was read in French by Mrs Rositsa Nikolova, a teacher in French. Mr Stefan Terziev, a parent, read an excerpt in English, part of “The Wonderful Wizard of Oz”. All these loved characters were represented in pictures; the children had made up some music to some of the lyrics to make a song.
Parents, teachers, the school librarian, Mrs Tsoneva, Mrs. Meglena Hristova, Deputy Headmistress and project’s Manager took part along with the children on their reading session. Each child was given a book of the series of “Agatha- girl of Mystery” by Steven Stevenson.
The Project on which Vazrazhdane Secondary School has been working for two years now aims at developing students’ reading habits and skills as a child who reads becomes an adult who thinks.
