I Love Reading Vol.2 (Issue 7)


Ilovereading is a magazine for children from age 4 onwards. This magazine seeks to develop the joy of reading in children and to complement their learning through a series of well thought out stories and activities. It centres around three main characters a brother and sister name Stan and Stella; and Lulu, a ‘magical’ monkey. Children will be eager to join in the adventures of the characters in each new issue.

The stories and activities of each issue are based on a particular theme. The theme in the first issue is ‘Jungle Animals’ and the subsequent themes for Volume 1 of the series include ‘Farm Animals’, ‘Earth Day’, ‘Travel’, ‘International Friendship’ and ‘Storyland’. These themes complement some of the stories used in the STELLAR programme used in Primary 1 and 2.

The stories seek to draw the children in and create in them a desire to read and find out what happens to the characters, whom they will be able to readily identify with. The level of reading is age appropriate and seeks to reinforce reading fluency. Questions are embedded within the stories to help children develop both critical thinking skills and empathy towards others.

The activities like crossword puzzles, wordsearches, spot the difference, mazes and simple craft, are fun ways to help develop skills such as fine motor skills, eye-hand coordination, word recognition and vocabulary building.

The colourful illustrations that accompany the text are attractive and lively and will make reading a positive and joyful experience for the young children.

In addition to the magazine itself, a teacher/parent resource pack is available for each issue. This resource pack will include suggestions for creative drama activities, as well as other types of classroom activities, to enhance the children’s learning experience, as studies show that children learn best through active participation. Worksheets (with answers) are also included which help to develop comprehension, grammar and phonics skills – all valuable skills especially at this early age.
