The spelling in the picture and the word is the title of the spelling week that was realized at the National Library Bor in early December. The program is a joint work of the elementary school "3. Oktobar "and the Children's Department of the National Library in Bor, with the help of the Enigma Club Bor and the Drama Studio of the Cultural Center Bor. The backbone of the entire program is a supplemented photo-exhibition. “Who is illiterate”, an exhibition of photographs of public inscriptions with spelling mistakes, which was first shown in May. At the same time, the exhibition was both motivational and developmental, as it provided an opportunity for developing responsibility and awareness of the importance of respecting the spelling, especially in the public sphere.
The Spelling Week had two target groups: children / pupils and adults / teachers of elementary school and teachers of high schools. Two lectures were organized for adults: The spelling in the school administration, where it was pointed out the most common spelling mistakes and doubts about the completion of the school administration and the Spelling in Contemporary Communication, where in addition to the basic features and type of modern communication, the inevitability of linking spelling and typing, as well as the proper compilation and sending of email messages, the most widespread forms of electronic communications.
For pupils, there were Spelling Enigmatics (contest in solving crosswords, rebuses and anagrams) and quiz How well do I know spelling (six games in total, where each game represented a spelling field), in which the forces were assessed by four elementary schools in Bor. The winners were also provided with awards (cups, book markings, diplomas, membership cards and one copy of Spelling and Clay's Dictionary of Language Dangers for School Library).
The whole program is supposed to draw attention to the unacceptably large number of spelling errors, to influence the development of accountability and awareness of the importance of respecting the spelling because the rules without application mean nothing.
According to the number of visitors, the increased interest in spelling handbooks, the number of new members of the National Library in the period May-December, but also by the presence and reporting of the media, from local to television and radio stations with national frequency, the goal of the spelling week has also been realized.
