How We Express Ourselves

12 May 2018

We shouldn't teach great books; we should teach a love of reading”. - B. F. Skinner
Under the theme “How We Express Ourselves,” KG2 learners visited the elementary school library to enrich their knowledge about various stories, and to experience different means, other than books, found there. Learners were exposed to the importance of reading and the role that books play in widening our lens and fostering our understanding.
They were introduced to different means and tools used inside the library like bookshelves, CD storage, projectors, maps, posters, puppets and computers that help both the teachers and students to inquire about their tensions. They read different versions of one story and discovered the various ways for its display. Furthermore, they sat in the story corner and chose a story that is engaging to them, and then they started reading it. As they were rotating between corners in the library, they were starting to figure out different subjects that books cover and how rich a resource book could be. Besides, some learners found stories that their parents read and realized that libraries are the house of plenty stories that we borrow and read. Finally, learners were able to conclude that stories are one way that people use to express themselves, as well as their feelings and ideas.
Learners are now able to differentiate between books, stories, posters, and maps, and they are able to relate each one to its real function. They now know and depend on the useful resources we have within our class centers, the classroom library.
For the love of reading and fostering knowledge library is always there to help us.
