World of Words

The Galileo Book Club, World of Words, is an 8-week literary workshop for grade school students. Besides reading stories that relate to their everyday experiences, they will also learn how to express their creative side through writing and speech performances.

The Storytellers group is for grades 1 to 3 students. Students will learn to practice their listening comprehension skills through an interactive storytelling. They will also become storytellers by creating their own stories based on a featured text.

The Taletellers group is for grades 4 to 6 students. Students will learn to enhance their speaking skills by creatively presenting a story through Readers Theater and Speech Choir.

The workshop will also include group discussions to further develop their comprehension skills in noting details, making inferences, and predicting outcomes. At the end of program, all students will showcase their written work or speech performances at a culminating activity. They will also bring home a collection of the book titles read over the course of the workshop and a compilation of their output.
