Reading Week

Dear colleagues in ESLprintables,

On April, my school celebrated love of reading as the students had the chance to be part of a comprehensive reading week which also included a visit to children’s author and illustrator Una Rawlinson who is currently based in Dubai.

This opportunity provided more than 90 students with the opportunity to participate in a short-term English language immersion experience where educational workshops were combined with hands-on activities.  I wanted to share with you this long time ago, but didn’t have the time to upload the pictures. I created a short movie about it which I posted on youtube so feel free to visit the link and let me know what you think ^_^




I would like to know what do you do in your country to celebrate reading?

very good idea. personnally I encourage my students to read and I give them some short stories and we discuss and work on them in class but it ´s very interesting to do that in a larger scale.

Hi Azza,
What a wonderful experience ur sts. have been thru. I always encourage my students to read. Sometimes I ask my students to read a certain story and summarize it. A contest is held afterwards to choose the best summary and the winner wins a collection of books .
Best wishes,
