Pre-Primary & Primary Teachers


Introduce creative reading in Pre-Primary & Primary classroom: Book Talk – Storytelling – Reading Aloud - Story Time – Mediation – Interactive reading – Creative responses

Explore different strategies to promote children’s holistic reading experience.

Read, tell and perform literary texts with children to promote the development of language awareness and appropriation.

Think, plan and carry out a variety of creative “literary” tasks that ignite imagination and creativity!


The workshop explores creative reading strategies and activities in the Primary classroom which contribute to supporting extensive and spontaneous listening and reading in English. We will focus on how these strategies promote children’s reading abilities, ignite their creativity, imagination and thinkability and support the development of language awareness and appropriation. In this session, we will centre around picturebooks, storybooks and poems to encourage children’s holistic reading experience and we will make room for interactive and creative responses to foster exploration and discovery.
