For the fifth year, 5 different groups of AFS Secondary students read books in English to Pre-K and Kindergarten students. The young learners’ reading sessions are held on a monthly basis from November 2016 to March 2017. Lesson plans were provided by the Pre-K at the beginning of the project and the secondary school students were guided by their English language teachers. During their monthly visits to the Pre-K, our students, who act as mentors, not only read but also act out parts of the story, help the younger learners do crafts and learn words as well as songs related to the stories they read.
Both older and younger students thoroughly enjoy the experience and participate in a pleasant and fully educational project!!!
