My sister and my son joined the Scholastic Summer Reading Fun Workshop two weeks ago and they had a fun-filled morning after finishing all the activities prepared for them.
After a brief introduction, the teacher read a story by Dr. Seuss, I Wish That I Had Duck Feet. It is about a kid who wishes to have different animal and mechanical parts (like an elephant’s trunk among others). At the end of the story, he decides that he is happiest being himself.
The kids were then asked to answer a few questions regarding the story, like what they would love to have if they were to add something to themselves. My sister told the teacher that she would love to have a pair of wings!
Since the workshop’s theme is “All About Me”, they were given worksheets for them to write down their likes, hobbies, etc. The kids had an awesome time mapping out ideas about who they are as individuals — their favorite things to do/food to eat, and what they want to become when they grow up.
For the Build A Book activity, they were given materials to make a personal book. Zaiel is a bit artistically-challenged so he asked me to help him decorate his Klutz Build a Book: Me By Me. My sister, on the other hand, is a born artist, so she finished the activity without much effort.
Certificates & Loot Bags
They read another book before the wrap up, but this time, the kids participated. Then they were each given a Certificate of Participation and loot bags filled with snacks (plus a Kinder Joy egg surprise!). The kids were also thankful to go home with a FREE book of their choice.
The PhP 300 workshop fee is totally worth it! The Scholastic Summer Reading Fun is until May 28 and I suggest that you don’t miss it, especially if your child hasn’t participated yet into any reading workshops before.
The Scholastic Summer Warehouse Sale is still ongoing (do check out my post for details — Scholastic Summer Book Warehouse Sale 2016 & Summer Reading Fun). We bagged a few books to add to my kids’ collection. Happy reading! 🙂
