Introduction kicken & lesen Köln

During the reading promotion project kicken&lesen Köln boys of the fifth and sixth class from currently eight schools in Cologne experience reading as an exciting and fun activity. Over the course of one school year the boys are intensively supported by their teachers while practicing kicking and reading in weekly units. Incentives such as visiting matches of 1.FC Köln, and the encounter with their professional players are small rewards in between and serve the motivation of the project participants. The eight teams will compete in three disciplines against each other: in a kind of reading Olympics, a Book Slam® and the final football tournament. The winning team will hold the challenge cup of kicken&lesen Köln for their school.

kicken&lesen Köln is a cooperative project of the SK Stiftung Kultur and the Stiftung 1. FC Köln.
