I love it that my sons' school --although just as high tech as a lot of schools nowadays-- still champions the printed word. In this day and age when kids mostly read from Macs and V-Techs, you don't see kids running around with books in hand. But today, I saw these kids. Lots of them!
The school's Oral Communication class asked each child to bring their favorite book to read to class. This was a lovely idea on so many levels. First off, through this exercise, a child hones his reading skills. Also, his communication and presentation skills (which my boys sincerely slayed at!). Lastly, this became the venue for each child to share a bit about themselves to their peers.
To cut the long story short (Get it? Story? *nudge-nudge*), Book Day was a success!
I can't wait for more self-enriching gems like these from my boys' school!
