Last July 16 to 20, Kiddie Lab Learning School celebrated National Children’s Book Week to create awareness among everyone about the significance of reading books in the development of children. The school was decorated with festive buntings of well-loved children’s literary pieces to herald the opening of the celebration.
To install the value of stewardship and sharing, each student?brought books to share with their schoolmates. Oh, how our Kiddie Lab kids would enjoy reading these new stories!
Kiddie Lab parents also shared with the children their time and talents by gamely reading to their children’s respective classes. The Kiddie Lab kids truly loved the stories and had fun doing the follow-up activities the parents also prepared for them.
Thank you very much to Daddy Gino (Toddlers Class-Peach), Mommy Camille (Toddlers Class-Aqua), Mommy Cooky (Junior Nursery Class-Blue), Daddy Mickey (Junior Nursery Class-Red), Mommy Marie (Senior Nursery Class – Green), Mommies Pia and Karina (Senior Nursery Class – Yellow), Daddy Lester (Pre-K Class) and Mommy Valerie (Kindergarten Class). You made your children incredibly proud!
As part of the celebration, the Kiddie Lab teachers also staged a puppet show entitled, “Can I Join Your Club?”, a short story about accepting friends despite differences. A puppet show is a good storytelling tool to engage the children in an interactive way. The children had a hearty laugh while listening to the play. The puppet show theatre was also enjoyed by the kids in the school grounds as they tried on the puppets themselves.
After the hilarious puppet show, our Kiddie Lab kids had a short parade donning accents from?iconic children’s stories. They were very proud to wear their work!
The activities from our National Children’s Book Week were indeed very enriching. As the 35th National Children’s Book Day’s theme goes, “Sa Aklat May Yaya”. And such is the power of books! Reading enables our imagination and creativity to run free, frees us from ignorance by making us aware about the things around us, and makes us free to be whoever we want to be.
