“School around the book”

Reading is a key qualification even in the age of digitalization. And so, for two weeks, the challenge of reading motivation was the focus of the lessons at the henneberg elementary school. The spontaneous exclamation of a schoolgirl true to an author’s reading "reading makes fun" showed that the offer obviously fell on fertile ground.
Under the title "school around the book the children could expect a variety of activities: posters were designed, authors and their works were presented in lectures, and bookmarks were made in handicrafts class. All classes determined their class winners in a reading competition.
The highlights for the children, however, were a rough book exhibition and various author readings in the three schoolhouses. The gymnasiums were temporarily converted into exhibition rooms, where a traveling exhibition of the bavarian teachers’ association (BLLV) was presented with around 400 books from various subject areas. For the children, there were smokehouses set up where they could study the works of.
Since it is also interesting to know who the people are who write such books, various authors were invited to readings. Roman todt from bad kissingen was the first to pay. Thomas mc pfeiffer followed, who – living in reiterswiesen – had a home match. Jutta wielkem came from hanau, and heiko wolz, who lives in kirschfurt near miltenberg, rounded off the event.
The week of activities was made possible by the semi-financial proceeds of last year’s sponsored run as well as by the generous support of raiffeisenbank and the bus company gunther wolf (GWK), which had dedicated this year’s christmas campaign to the henneberg school.
The remaining money is to be used to expand the school libraries according to the children’s wishes and to purchase sets of classics by the authors that the children had the opportunity to get to know during the readings.
