Dear GEA Parents,
I believe that reading at home is the very best way for students to improve their fluency, literacy, vocab, and spelling skills. And it can be a lot of fun!
We are proud to introduce our GEA Reading Program. Each week, our teachers will choose a book for the class to read at home. We will spend a few minutes in each class talking about the book, and making sure students understand. We will also provide an optional book report, including vocabulary and comprehension questions. The books for each week will be listed on the class syllabus.
We have a library of other books to choose from, and we are happy to spend extra time with your child to find books that are interesting for them. The most important thing to encourage reading is to find books that match the student’s level and interest. And of course we also give stickers for finishing books. We even have a pizza party for the class that reads the most books!
We will lend books from our library at no charge, but if you would like to purchase the books that we are reading in class, you can buy them from GEA one at a time for 10.000won, or just buy all four books each month for 30.000, to be paid with your monthly bill. You are also welcome to buy them separately from any English bookstore.
