Reading Day tomorrow!

As part of our annual ‘Focus on Reading Day’ we will be running a number of activities at school including Buddy Reading (where older children read to their younger friends from kindergarten), Story Under a Tree (when parents come in and read to groups of students under the shade of a tree) and Book Barter (students get the chance to exchange used books with friends). Let’s read!

We launch Focus on Reading Week on Monday, 24 Nov, with an adaptation by our teachers of an Aesop’s Fable, ‘The Lion and the Mouse’. Following this, and again during Tuesday and Wednesday assemblies, we will have storytelling, Buddy Reading, when older students read stories to their younger friends, and ‘Drop Everything and Read’ (DEAR) when all teachers and students stop what they are doing for 20 minutes just to read. There will be many activities and workshops for parents to participate in. We will post updates on our school blog and Facebook page.

Buddy Reading

Buddy Reading, Panyaden School Chiang Mai

Our Buddy Reading activity saw older students read to their little friends. A wonderful way for our older children to learn care and responsibility – and practise their storytelling skills – and a very exciting moment for the little ones to hear a story from an older ‘brother’ or ‘sister’. So sweet!
