LI: to raise awareness of international literacy day.
On the 8th of September, it is the international Literacy Day where everyone around the world celebrates the day and takes their time to acknowledge literacy. Being able to read and writie gives people a huge advantage. Literacy enriches lives, word knowledge and creates opportunities for people to develop skills that will help them provide for themselves and their family.
It is estimated that if people read for 20 minutes everyday, they are seeing 1,800,000 words per school year, whereas people who read books for 5 minutes everyday, are only getting 282,000 words per school year.
I found this activity interesting because it persuades me that reading is important daily, and it builds our vocabulary words each time we read.
