Join Scholastic’s Summer Reading Fun Workshop for Kids

Last weekend, we joined Scholastic’s Summer Reading Fun Storytelling and Workshop at their warehouse in C. Raymundo, Pasig City.

It was 2 hours of fun and learning and the P300 fee was worth every cent!

Here’s an account of what happened. 

The session started with storytelling by Teacher Hilda, a Scholastic Reading Program consultant.

Scholastic Summer Workshop

The chosen book was Dr. Seuss’ I Wish that I had Duck Feet. It was a good choice as it entertained the kids a lot with the funny animal body parts. Teacher Hilda would often pause to ask the kids questions about the story. That kept the kids occupied and made the storytelling interactive.

DA was quick to answer some of the questions, a good indication that he enjoyed the story. Yey!

Parents, younger siblings, and guardians get to join the session also as they provided chairs at the back of the room.

After storytelling, it was Teacher Mira‘s turn to introduce the activities that will prepare them for the book making workshop.

She had the kids draw/write their favorite food, favorite things, what they want to be when they grow up, etc. on a sheet of paper.

The kids were then handed a Klutz Build a Book All About Me.

It actually says for ages 6 and up but the workshop is open for kids starting age 4. Don’t worry about it though because you can help your child do it or if you’re not present, the facilitators are helpful enough to guide the kids.

Inside the box is a book with blank pages for your child to fill in. Also included in the box are pretty papers, cutout foams, diecut letters, googly eyes, a pen, and a stick of glue. It’s actually everything your child will need to unleash the creativity in him/her. DA just had fun sticking everything on the pages. LOL!

After the session, a big surprise awaited the kids. The Kinder Joy mascot made a special appearance to congratulate the kids for their hard work.

Each participant was awarded a certificate of participation and a loot bag with lots of yummy goodies! No photo of those because the kids didn’t take their breakfast and thus devoured the contents. LOL!
