Readers Club

Welcome to CLAREP Young Readers Club – the club for young readers.

With CLAREP young readers club, children experience both the excitement of reading and the fascination of learning in a friendly atmosphere which makes it fun to share ideas and opinions. Our programmes help children overcome difficulties in reading and enable them to become better readers. We teach children both to read and to learn. Our activities include; picture reading, book talks, speed booking, reading games and public readings.

Reading Games

Our reading games and activities expose children to a variety of skills and reading strategies that will help to create better overall comprehension. Skills covered in our reading games include: main idea, drawing conclusions, context clues, cause and effect, fact and opinion, synonyms, antonyms, vocabulary, and many more. Kids will stay engaged learning new and challenging skills while they play our reading games.

Public readings

One way of letting people know about a book is by doing public readings. No matter what type of writer one is, at some point, one will have to read to a live audience in order to get ones work seen. To prepare our children for such a time as this, we expose them to authors, book festivals and great children's literature which provide inspiration and ideas for their own reading and writing. We also teach them to perform at literary festivals and events that we organise to promotion our club.

Book talks

Book talks are simple, informal presentations designed to inspire others to read a book one enjoyed. When one reads a good book, it’s only natural to want to share it. "Booktalking" is one of the most effective ways to get kids reading! We entice young readers to open a book, engage their interest, and invite them into the story.

Picture Reading

Picture reading helps children to develop visual literacy; the ability to explore images, reflect on them and then extract meanings from the images. Even though a story may be read aloud or told using text alone, without the accompanying illustrations, the meaning is different. Sometimes, careful examination of illustrations shows that there are more stories going on in a book than just the one told through the words. In children’s picture book, much of the story is actually in the pictures themselves. So we take children on a picture walk of stories.

Speed Booking

Speed booking is based on the principles of speed dating. It is meant to introduce readers to varieties of books and get them excited about reading. It is a simple set up which involves pulling books from shelves, placing about 10 to 20 books in a pile of five or six tables. Readers sit in groups of four around each table and they are timed to look over books on each table within ten to twelve minutes and give their opinions about some of them. Readers then have the opportunity to discuss what they see on the tables with their peers and also check out anything that looks interesting.
