Back again on my blog😘😘
After my blog before, now I want to share my experience about Reading Project.
You know what?? this Project is one of my group’s targets for the final exam of the 2nd semester in Integreated English Skill II lesson. Do you want to know more? Let’s see💃💃💃
On May, 24 – 2018
The name of our group is “We are the Winner” whose members are I (Rumi), Maria, Melan, Elyta and Greta. We did this Reading Project at the elementary school of Advent XV Ciracas. But my group don’t do this Project alone, we joined the Amenda Group and his members too😉
Okay.. When we arrived at the school, we immediately met one of the teachers to ask permission to do this Reading Project. After being allowed, we were given a class, the 5th grade of the elementary school. It was interesting to met many children😍. By coincidence I also really like children💕. There was an interesting thing that made me feel that I was to be a Teacher at the time wkwkwk. Why I say like that? Because when they come up to us one by one and shaking our hands and say “Hey Miss”. In that moment I was very confident that I should become a Teacher later on😁😁 HAHAHAHAHA
But …. I also feel scared and nervous😣. Because this is the first time I’m doing Reading Project. Before it, I will tell you what is Reading Project ??? Reading Project means reading a story in front of many people in English😲. And because my friend and I did this project to elementary school children, so we chose to tell Timun Mas’s story. But you know ?? telling the story in front of the child is not as easy as I imagine 😣 why? Because we have to tell in English. As we know, most Primary school don’t like English lessons, with the reason that English is difficult or difficult to understand. Just imagine what I had to do then.. hufttt😐😐..
and finally I tried to find a method of how to read to make the child understand what I say without having to know what I say. Do you know? The method I use is Body Gestures and Intonation in Reading, so the child can understand what the story means (how happy I was when I succeeded .. yeayyy 😂).
After we finished telling stories, we gave them presents. We gave one candy for one child. Indeed, the price of candy is not expensive, but they are very happy when we give candy. Candy is our gratitude to them to assist us in completing our target 😉
Many things I can learn from the Reading Project😄 there are : how to be patient with children, how to make children understand what we say. In essence I feel very happy, happy to met many children, happy to share stories, happy to share some knowledge about English and motivate them to be more excited again while studying.
And from this experience, I can quote the wise words “Don’t be afraid to try new things and try to give the best when trying, even for the first time”.
Okay Guyss, that’s my short experience in doing this Reading Project, may be useful and i hole you like to read it😊😊
Thank you so muchhh😘😘😘
