Between March 21-25, 2022, the children and young people from the Project “Through education towards vocation!”, Focused their attention on reading and creation. This week’s event, entitled “The Adventures of a Child Like Me,” aimed to bring children closer to the book world.
During these days, there were several activities, reading workshops and creative sessions through which the souls of the little ones were invited to open up to the wonderful world of stories. It was the ideal occasion to promote literature, but also to stimulate the reading appetite of older and younger readers. The children were encouraged to create a story together, to which each participant would contribute. In these activities, they were encouraged to imagine heroes and extraordinary deeds engaged in the struggle of good against evil. In addition, the participants were challenged to identify and introduce into the narrative three things for which they are grateful, but also those behaviors that they intend to apply to show their gratitude to God, parents and friends.
Children love to read stories and we are used to reading without knowing the title of the book when we discover a new story. We discover it at the end, but until then, each of us asks himself: “What would be the title of the book?”. It is a game of imagination through which we challenge students to become detectives in the mission to find out the title of the story. This keeps them attentive and makes it easier to understand the text read and listened to, respectively. The activities, from this week, were to the liking of the children. ”- said Elena Henegar, teacher at the“ Mihai Eminescu ”Gymnasium School from Țelna.
