Here are some of the suggestions that were sent in by those of you who use our kit:
- We have a family reading month in the fall and in the spring. We set up a large
display and as each child in our school reads a book, we record it in some manner on
the display. ex.: a tree with leaves.
- Mrs. Gwen Reilkoff, Victoria School, Kamsack, Saskatchewan
- The Read Up On It poster makes a wonderful book cover for school books.
- Christine Gauthier, mother of three, Ottawa, Ontario
- R.I.O.T. or Reading Instead of Television. The children are encouraged to read
instead of watching television and the class that reads the most minutes ... wins
the afternoon off: skating with the school principal and a yummy treat.
- Lynne Revill, Wetaskiwin Public Library, Wetaskiwin, Alberta
- Children rush into the recreation room and choose books borrowed from the local
library. Parents and other volunteers ask the children if they would like "book buddies". Then everyone gets ready to share some great children's stories. Some children read with one another and some read by themselves. The focus is always on
fun, and books are the focal point [of the Reading Circle program].
- Dave Page, Frontier College, Toronto, Ontario
- Reward time spent reading, not the number of books read. We want children to get
into the habit of reading, ex. 10-15 minutes per day.
- Elizabeth Austin, North Vancouver District Library, North Vancouver, British Columbia
- Please write us with your ideas and we'll include them in next year's kit!
