Virtual school is in; but you don't have to do it alone!
Kids need to read constantly to increase their reading frequency, comprehension, and fluency. The thing is, they are oft forced to read mandatory titles that they have little to no interest in. Conscious and mindful reading involves slowly perking the interest of readers, and push them to their fullest reading capabilities.
Who loves to write? We do! However, we know it is not the forte of all learners, and that's okay. To motivate writing, we must allow students the freedom to put their imaginations and feelings on paper without limitations. This provokes a toleration--if not joy--for writing. Once this occurs, students can complete on mandatory tasks that require more time, dedication, and focus.
American English is tough and can be awfully confusing, especially for student who are in a household where mainstream English is not the primary language. Literacy interventions can benefit not only the students in our program, but their siblings and parents alike. Students take what they learn from us, and apply them to their scholastic lessons, increasing their grades across the board.
English enhancement sessions can be beneficial to students whose environments are not cohesive to maintaining a steady grip on American English. Rather than teaching English as a Second Language, we teach children how to "code switch"; maintaining their vernacular and culture. Students can keep their primary culture, while merging with the mainstream American culture.
