They appreciate you greatly. Your votes made their day.

For those joining us today, my students wrote an assignment and because it was difficult for me to choose the winner, we decided to take the assignment online for my wonderful followers to vote for the student with the best points. The post on Lessons From Ruth can be found here.

They all did wonderfully well and as suggested by some of you and my principal officers, they were all given gifts.

Timilehin was the second runner-up with 33 votes.

This morning, they all insisted on writing and editing this post with me, so all errors are ‘ours’…lol.

Special thanks to my photographer, Juwon. He took all the shots. Nice, yeah?

In other news, Happy World Book Day. World Book Day seeks to inspire people to turn off the TV, log off the net, put away the video games & ignore all the other myriad distractions of modern life and enjoy the simple pleasure of reading a book instead.
World Reading Day encourages people everywhere to organise their own events to promote reading. Be this a school having a class where pupils take it in turns to read a page from their favourite book, a workplace where an after work book club is held or a retirement home where people are encouraged to rediscover the books that helped shape their lives.
We had a Reading Picnic to celebrate this very important day.
You can watch the video here.

Here are some pictures:

Readers are Leaders.

Readers are Leaders.

World Book Day is a celebration! It’s a celebration of authors, illustrators, books and (most importantly) it’s a celebration of reading aimed at children. In fact, it’s the biggest party of its kind marked in over 100 countries all over the world. So if you love reading – or you hope to pass your love of reading onto someone else – this is the perfect day to do it.
World Book Day motivates children, teens, and adults worldwide to celebrate the power of words, especially those words that are shared from one person to another. By raising our voices together on this day, we show the world’s children that we support their future: that they have the right to read, to write, and to share their words to change the world.
HAPPY WORLD BOOK DAY, EVERYONE!

  18. If school was this fun in our days we would have skipped school, I swear. Picnic in school back then, not a chance.
    I must commend you Ezar, your state of thinking means we can engage our children in ways far removed from the current outdated model of education delivery. We can, in short, start to change the way people learn to match the digital age we live in. Kudos

    • Yes! Yes! Yes! Students should be learning that learning is fun. They should be learning that expanding one’s horizons is fun, that learning you were wrong about something is not so painful, and that taking an educational risk is worth doing. They should be learning that school is a good place to do these things. The children of today dread going back to school in September, dread exams, dread receiving their grades, and are generally fearful. No wonder school is stressful. But there is no reason children cannot have intellectual fun, cannot be excited by ideas, and cannot be challenged to acquire new knowledge. Natural learning is a basically enjoyable thing to do. Two-year-olds love to learn. Many adults love to learn. Only school-age children associate learning with fear of failure. We must get the fear of failure out of the school system in our country. U re inspiring, Ezar.
