原创活动集锦 | 赫德读书周的N种打开方式！Literacy Week at HDBJ
Students made a digital booklet to introduce their favorite book to others, using what they learnt on ICT class. It's a great opportunity for them to review the book contents and learn digital design and English writing.
金盏校区还邀请书商“Share Kids Books”入驻学校，在多功能厅开办了为期3天的书市。在课下时间，学生可以来多功能厅挑选图书并自行购买。与此同时，赫德学生会也联系到欠发达地区的一所学校，组织各学院向该校捐赠图书。
The school invited Share Kids Books (a book company providing book exchange, book fair and book purchase) to the school for a three day book fair, during which students can freely choose and purchase their favorite books. HDBJ Secondary Student Union ran a book drive. Student representatives established contact with a school in need of resources and encouraged HD students to donate their gently used books to help the school and their students.
During Literacy Week, all children were invited to take part in HD's read-a-thon challenge. Their task was to read as many pages of an English book as possible. The students took part in the challenge with great enthusiasm, and they arrived at school excitedly each morning, ready to show their reading records to the teachers. It was wonderful to see their increased passion for reading and how well they commended each other on their efforts.
The children participated in a buddy reading event, in which upper school students came to lower school classrooms and read with their book buddies. Students were able to spend time together in celebration of reading. The students enjoyed the opportunity to interact with students from other grade levels. The upper school students were able to showcase their expressiveness while reading and act as role models for the lower school students. The lower school students were able to see how exciting and engaging reading can be, especially when shared with others.
The book swap held at HD Beijing was an absolute success. It was an exciting event that everyone looks forward to throughout Literacy Week. The students donated up to five books each and were able to exchange them for books given by other students. The books that were supplied spanned many different genres and categories. The success hinged on student involvement and participation.
As part of Literacy Week, we had a Door Decorating Competition. Each class chose a book to focus on and creatively decorated their doors around that theme. The children had great fun helping with the door displays and the quality was outstanding. Some children from Grade 5 were the judges along with Ms Julie and Ms CJ. Congratulations to our winners: 5B, 4C, 3A, 2A, 1E and KC.
The final event for the week, in celebration of World Book Day, was a very colourful and memorable parade. The students (and teachers!) went to great lengths to dress up as their favourite book characters and participated in a very lively parade. They thoroughly enjoyed showing off their costumes and guessing each other’s characters. They learned from each other about different book characters, creating an eager curiosity to find these characters in the pages of the next book they want to read.
