Service With a Smile!

The chal¬≠lenge in doing ser¬≠vice as an inter¬≠net club is that we are scat¬≠tered through¬≠out the Kiwa¬≠nis world. The bonus of being an inter¬≠net club is that we are scat¬≠tered through¬≠out the Kiwa¬≠nis world. We need to look for ideas that we can do whereev¬≠er we may be, to help make a dif¬≠fer¬≠ence for chil¬≠dren near to us. I would sug¬≠gest our own ver¬≠sion of Read Around the World.

I have a con¬≠nec¬≠tion with a local school that I taught at. I go there peri¬≠od¬≠i¬≠cal¬≠ly and read a book to a class which I then donate to them. The cost is small but the ben¬≠e¬≠fits are large.

The Lion Inside writ¬≠ten by Rachel Bright is an amus¬≠ing tale that offered lots of oppor¬≠tu¬≠ni¬≠ty for pre¬≠dict¬≠ing and dis¬≠cus¬≠sion with the stu¬≠dents. It illus¬≠trates that we all have a lion and a mouse inside of us. For Eye of the Tiger vol¬≠un¬≠teers, we may have felt inse¬≠cure as the mouse in the sto¬≠ry but we had to be brave like a lion when approach¬≠ing some¬≠one to become a new mem¬≠ber. Our Eye of the Tiger dona¬≠tion stick¬≠er is proud¬≠ly dis¬≠played in the front of the  book cover.

I will share a dif­fer­ent book with you each month that I have used with suc­cess. I gen­er­al­ly tar­get grades two to four as an eager, recep­tive audi­ence. I know from over 35 years in the class­room that readalouds are always won­der­ful­ly received by stu­dents and by the class­room teacher who appre­ci­ate the gift of a book for their class­room. So…light up a child’s imag­i­na­tion and get read­ing! Sub­mit­ted by Julia Levine
