Primary Picture Books

(Category: Literacy)
This initiative is based on a very successful project in O Fiaich College, Louth. JCSP students link with a primary school; class and choose an appropriate picture book to read with the students. The students are prepared to visit the primary school and each student is assigned a reading partner to whom they read the book. On completion, each student presents the book to their reading partner.

Instructions

• The funding is available for schools to link with a primary school class and choose an appropriate picture book for JCSP students to read with the primary students. Students learn and practice the skills of reading a book with younger children.
• The students visit the primary school and each student is assigned a reading partner to whom they read the book.
• On completion, each student presents the book to his or her reading partner.
• Please enclose in your evaluation a detailed description of the activities undertaken in the running of the initiative along with any relevant photographs of the activities undertaken. We would be very grateful if the photos are sent to us digitally as the quality is great for publications. Please make sure that you have sought permission from parents/guardians to use the photos in publications. Some schools write to all parents asking them to make contact with the school if they object to photos being published.
• The evaluation should be submitted online at www.jcsp.ie. More details below.
