Organized by

THE READING PLACE, CHILD & YOUTH DEVELOPMENT BY READING INC.

The Reading Place is all about helping children in grades one to four read better for the purpose of advancing their education with an eye on graduating from grade twelve. Part of this process is learning about the world around them and this includes all the cultures they are exposed to every day. Our location is full of amazing themed rooms with three of the rooms culture based. Children will love to read in the rooms because the rooms are so amazing and our book collection is also amazing. Presentations to groups also happen in the culture themed rooms. For Culture Days we are going to take the culture presentations to the children in their schools and at the Battlefords Boys and Girls Club in a small group environment so the children can better interact with presenters. Presenters will be leaders of their applicable culture. Children will have the opportunity to create culture based items they get to take home with them. The whole focus will be fun and excited learning that doesn't feel like learning.
