Last week (w. 4) all of the students and teachers in middle school read a book of their choice between 10.00 and 10.20, no matter the subject. That means 65 000 minutes of reading this week! This was an initiative to get the students to read more and to appreciate their reading. It's been a really nice week with a calm start to the day and hopefully some students will keep on reading at home.
Reading comprehension is an ability that we test in a few subjects, but it's importance reaches further than that. It helps you to understand so much more information in your life and brings joy to reading a good book.
