Estante Mágica Project

Our Year 4 students have had an incredible experience this week: they were able to publish a real book in a successful partnership between The British College of Brazil and the publishing company Estante Mágica.

With the help of their teachers, 49 students needed to use their imagination to produce texts and illustrations to create books of Suspense. Combining technology and literature, our small participants produced their illustrations and texts, submitted them to a digital platform which later led to printing.

This amazing interdisciplinary project happened this year, between the months of February and June. The students studied the structure of Suspense narrative, looking at ways of creating suspense, learned about paragraph structure, researched what genre means, chose the best vocabulary, translated terms and expressions, produced scripts, and many other things related to the subject.

During this project, they were able to:

  • Reflect on current technological innovations,
  • Participate more in Portuguese language classes;
  • Develop their reading and writing skills in Portuguese;
  • Develop their self-esteem, necessary for overcoming any challenge in life.

The success of this project was extremely beneficial to everyone involved. Teachers were able to motivate more students in the classroom, students became more involved with writing and reading, parents were thrilled and were proud of their children’s end result. Even those students who had difficulties in Portuguese language before felt more enthusiastic about writing and could improve their comprehension, expression, oral communication, writing, reading and interpretation skills.

It was a great experience. The method is well thought out and well developed. Children were happy to be published authors and I must mention that book quality is very good. Thanks for organizing Jorge Ahumada, father of Ines who published  'The Mysterious House'
We are very happy with our daughter's participation in the Estante Mágica project. Actions like these are important to show in practice the importance of writing and helping in the development of the child's self-confidence. Cássa Lira Portugal, mother of Clara who published 'Alma'

The end of the project was marked by an event in which the children signed their own work, called 'Autograph Day'.

We appreciate the presence and support of all Year 4 parents for making this project a great reading and writing incentive for our children!
