Establishment of libraries in 20 primary level schools will help approximately 4000-6000 students each study year to get benefits of the facility and develop reading habit in them.
Book reading habit will add up to the knowledge and aptitude of the students of primary level and their drop out ration from the schools will gradually decrease.
Adopting and translating international books in the context of Pakistan will surely add up to the quality reading material for students.
Project will ultimately train and build the capacity of the teachers to create creative learning environment for their students.
This pilot project will serve as guiding mile stone for School Education Department and the same model can be replicated in more schools in future.
Orientation for parents (particularly of Grade 1 children) on book check out and support for children’s reading at home
Parents, by grade, come to observe children doing shared reading/reading aloud during the library period, and discuss why these activities are done
Children take part in “reading aloud”/ “print rich” competitions, and parents participate in prize giving and winners’ presentations
Set up a Facebook/WhatsApp page to inform and update parents on the library and reading activities
Parents access and use the Literacy Cloud to further their understanding of the library, its purpose and how they can support their children read at home.
