Wild Reading Project



Help children discover the wild side of Reading

Local community group, Nature Nuture, are encouraging members of the public to pick up the phone and support their project to get children outside and exploring Reading’s underused parks and wild spaces.
The Wild Reading Project aims to help children and their families roam, play and learn in Reading’s many wild spaces. Many of Reading’s parks and woodlands are currently underused by members of the public: the project plans to get children engaged with the outdoors through workshops in schools, outdoor play days, conker contests, den building days and more.
To do all this Nature Nuture are asking for members of the public to help support them in making the project a reality. The Wild Reading Project has been shortlisted as a finalist for thePeople’s Millions –  an initiative provided by both the National Lottery and ITV where the public can vote on which community projects they would like to see funded. If successful, The Wild Reading Project will receive £50,000 to help make Reading go wild.
The grant will not only help fund school workshops and family days out but also the construction of a Wild Reading website with apps, maps and activities for every person in Reading to take full advantage of the wild spaces in the town.
Nature Nuture are a local Community Interest Company who work with heritage and conservation organisations, schools and local authorities to get children engaged with the arts, nature and heritage. Founder of Nature Nuture, Natalie Ganpatsingh said “We are so excited to be People’s Millions finalists and winning would help us to get more people out and enjoying Reading’s under used but beautiful open spaces. We really hope that people will pick up their phones so we win the money and get families out and having fun together in Reading’s great outdoors.”
To support the project you just need to pick up your phone on Monday 24th October when ITV reveals the special voting number and vote for the Wild Reading Project. You can pledge your support online to be notified via email when you are able to vote.

Wild Thing loves learning Spanish, so I am always looking for bilingual books for him at the library. This week, I'm sharing 5 of our recent favorites and two books I've been reading lately that have offered lots of inspiration as I focus on finding my voice (or refining it, as the case may be). 

First, our bilingual favorites. When Wild Thing discovers a book or character he already loves in a bilingual version, he gets really excited. Me too. Several of our favorite library books this week are books such as this: Freight Train/Tren de Carga by Donald Crews, which compliments well with Miau y las sillitas (Meeow and the little chairs) by Sebastein Braun. Both of these books reinforce colors in Spanish and English quite well and both involve trains - a real train and an imaginary train made by chairs by Meeow and his friends. 

Wild Thing always loved Freight Train, so finding a bilingual version really excited him, and Meeow and his friends were first discovered through the book Meeow and the Pots and Pans, which the boys also loved in September when we discovered it. Another Meeow book, especially a bilingual one about creating a train out of chairs was beyond perfect for Wild Thing. 

Another exciting library discovery for us has been that many Lucy Cousins' books about Maisy are available in bilingual versions or in Spanish editions. This week, we enjoyed Maisy's Toys/Los Juguetes de Maisy and Suenos de colores, Suena con Maisy, which is exclusively in Spanish. The latter book really pushed me with language acquisition as well. Wild Thing already knew his colors in Spanish, but having so many Spanish language books focusing on colors that we're reading at the same time helps him begin to expand beyond the colors as we start to use colors with nouns. I am hoping we can move toward sentences, rather than just simple word recognition soon. 

The final picture book we're sharing features beautiful, poetic phrases in Spanish and English. You Are My I Love You/Tu Eres Mi Te Quiero, a board book by Maryann Cusimano Love and illustrated by Satomi Ichikawa quickly became the new nighttime favorite at our house. The book is simply lovely opening with: "I am your parent; you are my child. Yo soy tu padres; tu eres mi nino. I am your quiet place; you are my wild. Yo so tu casa; tu eres mi selva," and closing with: "I am your good-night kiss; you are my I love you. Yo soy tus besos de las buenas noches; tu eres mi te quiero." Is your heart melting yet? Mine melts every time we read it. 

What makes my heart melt even more is the way Wild Thing embraces learning Spanish and his excitement over new words. I also love to see how contagious this excitement is as Caterpillar has started shouting out Spanish words too lately. 

As for me, I’m focusing a lot right now on finding, celebrating and sharing my voice -- my authentic voice, a voice that reflects the unique way that I see the world and seek to engage with the world and what I hope to create and share with the world. In doing so, I’ve also been reading a lot -- about other artists and writers who have shared their process of finding and nurturing their voices. 

This week for Project 101: Weekly Library Challenge, I’m catching up by sharing two books I read recently that resonate with the creative journey that I am on: The House on Mango Street by Sandra Cisneros and Steal Like An Artist by Austin Knoll.

¿Por qué tanto relajo con el idioma inglés?

¿Què pasa con el inglès…?

Alumno Ingles   01

Por qué en las escuelas públicas nadie aprende inglés

Es la sensación general de la población. El idioma ya es requisito casi indispensable en la búsqueda de cualquier trabajo. ¿Faltan profesores? ¿Se enseña mal? ¿Hay pocas horas? Hablan las expertas. Enterate, opiná y contestá las encuestas.

En ninguna escuela pública de México se aprende inglés.- ONG

El titular de Mexicanos Primero, Claudio X. González, acusó una simulación en el aprendizaje del inglés  

El presidente de Mexicanos Primero, Claudio X. González, aseguró que en ninguna escuela en México se aprende inglés a pesar de que es obligatorio en la secundaria desde 1926.
“El 97 por ciento de los alumnos no alcanzaron el nivel previsto en el plan de estudios de inglés de la Secretaría de Educación Pública (SEP)”, señaló Claudio X. González al dar a conocer el informe Sorry, El Aprendizaje del Inglés en México.

Salen de la secundaria sin saber inglés: estudio

En la escuela pública nadie aprende inglés, aseguran

MÉXICO, D.F., enero 27 (EL UNIVERSAL).- Del total de estudiantes egresados de las secundarias públicas del país, 97% reprobaron el nivel de inglés previsto en el plan de estudios de la Secretaría de Educación Pública (SEP).
El estudio Sorry. El Aprendizaje del Inglés en México, aplicado en una muestra representativa a nivel nacional a alumnos egresados de secundarias públicas de once ciudades del país, revela que todos los estudiantes salieron mal y hay brechas importantes de aprendizaje del inglés, por regiones y niveles socioeconómicos.

1 de cada 5 jóvenes que realizó la prueba no pudo identificar elementos básicos en un texto como ¿cuál es el nombre del autor?; o responder preguntas de opción múltiple cómo: How are your classes? A. Soon; b. Fine; c. Math and English. // Foto: Cuartoscuro.

Alumnos de prepa en México, ‘reprobados’ en inglés

En México el nivel de inglés de los estudiantes de preparatoria es tan bajoque se tiene que inventar una categoría para calificar su desempeño. O al menos eso ocurrió cuando Mexicanos Primero aplicó el
Examen del Uso y Comprensión del Idioma Inglés para Egresados de Secundaria (EUCIS) con el que se encontró que sólo el 3% de los jóvenes alcanza un “nivel elemental”.
Según los resultados que arrojó el EUCIS, el 79% de los estudiantes obtuvo la calificación A0, que implica un desconocimiento total del idioma inglés; el 13% una nota A1, el 5% una A2 y sólo el 3% la B1.
