Ever been to a kidsREAD session?
Here’s how chaotic yet fun, it is during a kidsREAD storytelling session with 6 year old kids.
23 members of our kidsREAD Club graduated on 18 November 2012!
Eunos Heights Residents’ Committee partnered with National Library Board in running the kidsREAD Programme.
Parents shared that they observed significant changes in their children, mainly an increase in the passion for reading as well as confidence and language skills.
We are glad to share that we would be continuing the kidsREAD programme next year for 5-year-old and 6-year-old children.
Eunos Zone ‘3’ Residents’ Committee is setting up the Eunos Heights kidsREAD Club, the first kidsREAD Club in Eunos Division.
In short, kidsREAD promotes the love of reading and cultivate good reading habits among young Singaporeans, in particular children from low-income families.
kidsREAD is open to children between the ages of 4 and 8 regardless of race, language or religion with the target group of children from less well-to-do families i.e. children from families with gross monthly household income not exceeding $3,500 or per capita income not exceeding $900.
Volunteers are the lifeline of kidsREAD. They read aloud stories to children to inculcate good reading habits from young and help them discover the joy of reading. Training in basic storytelling skills and planning for a reading session as well as guidebooks to aid the volunteers in their role are provided. The guidebooks comprise the Volunteer Resource Guide Book and kidsREAD Starter Kit that provides suggestions on activities to be carried out.
The main aim for volunteers is to get the children interested in reading, that it is fun and useful.
Date Commence: 25 May 2012 (Every Friday)
Time: 7.30pm to 8.30pm
Venue: Blk 627 RC Centre
