What has this got to do with learning English, you may wonder.
I try to give my students an article to read every week- I want them to be updated with current affairs, cultivate a habit of reading and also learn the writing style, vocabularies of other great writers.
This week, I chose something light and interesting- rainbow looms. Rainbow looms are a craze among primary school kids now. The lower primary read about the celebrities who wear them, while the upper primary students read about the story of the founder of Rainbow Loom.
To get them interested in reading the story, I played them this video of American comedian wearing a suit made of looms. Hopefully, it will propel them to do my reading assignment.
