World Read Aloud Day
KSI Bogota Celebrates World Read Aloud Day Virtually
February 3, 2021 marked World Read Aloud Day and this year KSI Bogota celebrated the day a little differently
KSI Bogota staff were invited to read their favourite book aloud to students via video conference. Presenters made the characters come to life in their readings and went to extra special lengths to dressup! Students thoroughly enjoyed the sessions and participated by dressing in costume and reading along with the teacher.
Books selected were a range of English and Spanish titles.
- ¡Vaya apetito tiene el zorrillo! by Claudia Rueda
- Cómo atrapar una estrella by Oliver Jeffers
- Las vacaciones de Roberta by Silvia Francia
- DOING MY CHORES by T. Albert
- The giving tree by Shel Silverstein
- Maisy va a la biblioteca by Lucy Cousins
- The Phantom of the Opera by Kate Knighton (illustrated version based on Gaston Leroux's version)
- Anabel y el monstruo del Lago Ness by Adam Hochschild
- The case of the missing smile by T. Albert
- Cómo reconocer un monstruo by Gustavo Roldan
- Matilda by Roald Dahl (Fragment)
The day was an enormous success with staff very appreciative of being included in the activity and interacting with students in a new way.
