Reading is an essential skill for anyone who wants to succeed in life, but it is equally important in helping you to develop and reinforce all your other language skills.
Reading is beneficial in many ways. It helps one to improve vocabulary, writing, grammar, and even reading and listening skills because you are constantly reminded of the vocabulary you may know, the sentence structure and language usage and expression. It is recommended that students should read all types of material, fiction as well as non-fiction.
In our own school library there are many magazines, comics, mystery stories and graphic novels to explore. Students can also an effort to find their own reading material from a local library.
In addition, the school subscribes to the online reading sites Raz-Kids and Scholastic. There is a Battle of the Books club and an internal Mini-Bob reading competition in forms 1 and 2.
The main point is for students to read as much as they can. Most of all, read for pleasure. The more one reads, the more they will enjoy reading.
