Blog of the Week – Literary Clubs

Along with another full school year, comes opportunities for students to participate in an assortment of clubs! Our current group of BCF teachers are nothing short of amazing. Not only do they teach classes six days a week, but they also facilitate various clubs within their schools. BCF teacher Carmelita has been engaging her students in a Literary Club and Vicky in a Peer Support Learning Club.

“After some discussion about why they loved reading, how they select books to read, and what they thought would motivate students to read more and better, I distributed my few books and challenged them to decide what age the books were suited to and to read them and come up with activities and questions they could use with primary students, to match the book they had been given.” Vicky – Samtengang MSS Peer Support Learning Club

“So, how did the club go? I got every student to talk, move, and most importantly, laugh. I used to have a poster that I hung up in my classroom, it had a huge green smiling frog, and it said, “A day without laughter is a day wasted.” I’ve had a bunch of wasted days recently because I haven’t felt like my healthy, happy-go-lucky self, but I swear, just put me in a room with a bunch of open-minded kids, and I’m in my element.” Carmelita – Club Randomness
