READING, PARENTS, CHILDREN, THE PERFECT COMBINATION
According to the educational policy of our school grouping, parents' participation in the life of the school is seen as a key factor for educational success. In this sense, by promoting the Readtwinning project, we also focus much of our attention on the involvement of parents, asking them to collaborate with their children in activities to promote Reading, what we call Family Reading. They do not always join easily, but little by little we get them to participate more and more in more creative ways. Thus, several are those who have been collaborating in the autonomous reading projects oftheir students, reading the same book together and making presentations about it, which they share inclass or through videos made at home. The enthusiasm of those involved has been evident, which we believe has greatly motivated the students to read.
On the other hand, we have encouraged reading in pairs, in which two students read the same book and, in class, talk about it, motivating their classmates to read the samebook.Also with the objective of promoting reading and reading comprehension, aswell as the development of oral expression, each student has developed individual reading projects, reading a book of their choice and then presenting it to the class, in the most creative way they can.
In addition, there have been activities aimed at contextualizing some books by Portuguese authors worked on inclass, which is nothing more than knowing the real places where the narrated events take place, so that students can more easily get involved in the action.
Finally, we must not forget to mention our blog Let's Read, where we publish the students' work on their readings and where they can exchange opinions on these or other books.
