Read Across Jamaica brings out the joy of reading!
The Read Across Jamaica Foundation yesterday embarked on another mission to encourage the nation's children to pattern fluent and impressive reading, by having influential persons in society and representatives from major organisations read to them during Read Across Jamaica Day.
Reading activities coincided with Child Month celebrations.
Children in schools across Jamaica shared in the joys of reading, through exhibitions and executions of different reading strategies, which assisted them with creating an interaction with text that may be above their independent reading levels.
Here are highlights below from some of the Read Across Jamaica Day activities.
