When I was thinking of a way to remind everyone that reading is fun, I didn’t imagine that reading a picture book to Pig the Pug would be so popular!
During Term Two, our two Pig the Pugs went home with 86 students (and a teacher) to have over 86 books read to them!
Our Pig the Pugs have become celebrities at our school! Each day I select two lucky peoples’ names written on raffle tickets and deliver Pig the Pug to them at lunchtime. I love the buzz in the corridor as students ask which class I’m going to and the excitement in the classroom as everyone waits to see who will be taking Pig the Pug home to read to that night.
Our Pig the Pugs have been lucky to listen to many different picture books including favourite books, precious family books and even the first book a person borrowed in Prep from our library. They have listened to stories with little brothers and sisters, favourite toys and family pets while in bed, on the couch, on a trampoline and out in the garden. They have been to basketball training, gymnastics and even accompanied someone to have an X-ray! Our Pig the Pugs have had dressing gowns and other outfits made for them as well as being dressed as a viking, reading champion and a ballerina!! They have been reminding us that reading is fun!
You can see our slideshow below for Term 2, but we will be starting a new slideshow for Term 3 on our #ReadingIsFunPage
After visiting so many homes it was time for our Pig the Pugs to have a much needed bath and time to relax before a busy time of #ReadingIsFun in Term 3…
If you want to take Pig the Pug home to read him a picture book you can get a raffle ticket at the LRC in the first week of Term 3…
