We concentrate on teacher training after conducting a reading and background assessment of the teachers and after establishing a clear, realistic goal for the reading program with a long-term commitment and mindset. Starting from offering guidance on reading development, its significance, and how to read to children. Throughout the entire program, we also continuously assess the instructors’ academic progress and offer support.
Second, we create useful reading exercises for every school grade. We advise instructors to read aloud to their classes each day in the lower primary and preschool classes. This typically lasts 20-30 minutes, and three times a day, the teacher reads to the students a minimum of three children’s picture books.
We have two reading activities suggest for the upper primary students. The first is independent reading where we support kids in choosing their own reading choices at school and borrowing books to read at home at a predetermined weekly gathering.
And last, we give kids access to top-notch books that are appropriate for their reading levels and each class. We provide Thai translations of well-known children’s novels including “Where the Wild Things Are” and “The Very Hungry Caterpillar.” For young readers’ books, we give examples such the Thai translations of “Paddington” and “Madeline.” The Chronicles of Narnia and Charlie and the Chocolate Factory are just a couple of the children’s books that we offer as examples. We even have copies of the “Lord of the Rings” series for our most accomplished readers.
Currently, the biggest challenge is finding the funds to provide children at these schools with books.
