On September 29, approximately 20 students participated in the Astronaut Kids reading workshop, facilitated by Alina Iga, the founder of Cufăr cu povești.
The activity started with a game of knowledge and imagination, in which Alina asked the children to imagine that they were astronauts and traveling in space. They thought of two people they would go on this adventure with and 5 items they would take with them. Afterwards, the students shared their names and answers to the questions in front of the group.
Then, they got to know the book Astronaut Kids, written by Anna Taube and edited by Univers Enciclopedic Junior. A wonderful story about neurodiversity that shows children that they are exactly who they are meant to be and that they are not alone. At the end, each student colored the card with the child astronauts.
We thank Alina Iga for facilitating the activity and Prof. Ioana Capotescu for involving the students in the activity.
