Reading can be fun!
So, after going to the library last week, last night it was time to run the "Book Club" at the Children's Home. First the kids wrote a postcard to a friend about the book that they had been reading: The 5-8th graders take this quite seriously:
As do many of the 1-4th graders (here are Danijela and Gaga with new volunteer, Milica): They had the same assignment, but then could also draw about the story as the picture on the postcard, the 5-8th graders are too serious for drawing :-)
Two new members of Book Club: Kiki in first grade (who is still learning to read) with Aleksandra, a new volunteer:
And two old ones: Mira with Milijana:
And two of my favourite old members, Tanja, who leads the 1-4th grade group, with Luka, who is already in 3rd grade!
And just to prove that we do have some fun in my 5-8th grade group: here we are playing the game I made up for them... shhhh don't tell them they are actually learning while having fun!
Two more new volunteers: Sandra and Jovana asking a riddle or a question during the game:
And somehow this group all managed to land on one square!!
So, as you can see, reading (or at least book club) can be fun!!
