By Zoila Palma Gonzalez:  “You can find magic, wherever you look, sit back and relax. All you need is a book,” Dr.Seuss.

Belize is observing Literacy Week 2020 with schools engaging in different creative activities to promote reading to all their students.

Around the world, Literacy Day is also being celebrated on September 8.

International Literacy Day 2020 focuses on “Literacy teaching and learning in the COVID-19 crisis and beyond,” especially on the role of educators and changing pedagogies.

The country adopted the international theme – “ Literacy teaching and learning in COVID-19 crisis and beyond.”

The theme highlights literacy learning in a lifelong learning perspective.

The COVID-19 pandemic has disrupted face-to-face learning and teaching in Belize and educators have been engaged in finding innovative ways to reach their students.

Several schools have adopted the use of technology to reach with Google Classroom and Whatsapp groups for sending and receiving classwork.

This year, undoubtedly, the activities have varied from Librarians coming in to read to the school.

Santa Elena Primary School in Santa Elena, Cayo installed a “Little Library” to encourage students to bring a book and take a book.

Now more than ever, parents are being encouraged to provide support and emphasize the importance of reading and literacy.

Literacy plays a crucial role in transforming students into socially engaged citizens that are able to make informed decisions.
