Using Shine Academy as the focus, Betty has been working on an ABC book with the students. They brainstormed words for each letter, did some shared sentence writing and have been working on illustrations. We were fortunate enough to walk home with a few students’ yesterday to take “snaps” of their houses to pair with the letter H. Even in such extreme poverty, mothers were happy to stand by their children and smile in front of their small cinder block homes. Walking back to school, I couldn’t help but to reflect on why I am here and where these sweet children are coming from each day.
“Running records will be a snap.” Those of us who know how to read and write and even teach wouldn’t be able to do what you do. So cool!
Fantastic! Now they will be able to track their progress for next year and start instruction sooner. Way to go babe, you are truly making a difference in many lives. We love you and miss you!
Mal, I wish I was there having this amazing experience!! You have so much energy to share your skills at teaching reading. Your work results there will be great. Have fun.
Who would have thought that your skills would come in so handy half way around the world? Marie Clay, that’s who. 90 kids? Nothin’ to it for you! Love and blessings!
