Reading Programme For Schools

Reading is an enduring expedition that demands dedication, perseverance, and regularity. The acquisition of this habit does not occur instantaneously; instead, it blossoms through consistent exposure and continuous nurturing, allowing students to refine their skills and cultivate a profound comprehension of the world that envelops them.

Given that students devote a significant portion of their time to schools, the adoption of a comprehensive reading programme serves as a catalyst for their learning journey while effectively supporting their cognitive development. As a result, an immersive reading environment is cultivated, fostering an atmosphere conducive to their continuous growth and exploration through reading.

ILOVEREADING.SG readily supports schools to enrich their reading programmes by offering a wide range of publications designed to cater to diverse age groups, spanning from preschools to junior colleges and high schools. All our publications come with teaching resources such as worksheets, audio recordings, video links, suggested answers and some even come with teaching slides! All these resources reduce teachers' preparation time and allow them to focus more on teaching! We are also thankful for the trust and opportunities schools have given us. Till date, we have worked with more than 50% of the schools in Singapore and we cannot wait to enrich more students through our publications!

Find out more our stakeholders commented on our publications
 

Our school has subscribed to the iThink and Inspire magazines for our students over the past 12 months. An amazing resource that we recommend to other schools.

Both magazines are wonderful interactive reading resources used within our English department to support our teaching and learning. The articles and images are relevant, vibrant and current and as educators we are continually looking for resources that promote student engagement. The content of each page connects powerfully with the context of living and growing up in Singapore.

The interactive commentaries, word challenges and comprehension activities allow students to take ownership of their own learning and teachers have often found them working together in groups to solve the crosswords or listening with shared smartphones to the links provided. This is without any direction from the teachers.

The iThink magazine additionally supports the IB Diploma English course which is developed around broad themes. The breadth of topics explored within each edition allows teachers to select relevant articles that align with the issues being explored in class, develop general knowledge and vocabulary and more importantly allow an appreciation and understanding of the people and landscape of Singapore. The articles written by students are particularly useful writing examples. 

We continue to use the Inspire magazines across Years 7-9 in particular and the students eagerly await each new edition with their glossy photographs, interesting headlines and captions. The magazines are thoughtfully edited with attention to different text types and genres which are useful when examining audience and composition.

Our school will continue to subscribe to both Inspire and iThink as the feedback is always positive and we are happy with the flexibility in which the magazines can be incorporated into our curriculum. 

A wonderful resource that is always delivered on time with excellent customer service and keenly anticipated by our staff and students.
