Enjoying Literacy Master Map Program!

Friends!
Friends!

Dear our Donors and Families,

We would like to thank you for your support, and to share our best Literacy Master Map photos 2018-2019 school year. We are absolutely sure that Reading is Fun, and Reading is Fundamental!

Every student has a progress and every student of this program has reached the goals. The most important that our students enjoy this program and remind their parents to go to reading class. For example, Kristina is always happy to complete her task independently. Kirill enjoys reading comprehension activities. Milana wants to be focused during reading story. Alexander likes to learn something new and to read a new book together. Ivan likes fun activities by demonstrating his positive emotions. 

Thank you for supporting Literacy Master Map Program!

And just like that our education year comes to an end. It seems like only yesterday we started working together with the kids and building bonds and the foundation for tomorrow’s leaders. We would like to first thank our sponsors for the help and for supporting our Literacy Master Map Program. Also, we would like to thank all the parents for the support and help with getting the kids ready and here for every class. The kids worked hard and really enjoyed listening to stories, participating in the activities, and making projects. Ivan always asked interesting questions about the book. Kristina and Alex were creative and showed interest in writing. Kiril worked very hard and improved his writing skills and handwriting. Milana enjoyed learning new information about the text. All the kids showed significant interest in many subjects that we covered. We engaged the students in project-based learning by first reading about different holidays, learning about their meanings, and finally creating a project to commemorate the significance of each holiday. Just recently, the kids enjoyed the Easter Egg hunt during Easter week.

Judging my students’ engagement, parental involvement, and the improvements that the kids made we deem the program a huge success. We thank the sponsors again for giving us the opportunity to host our Literacy program and hope that the program will continue next year.

Playing Together!

Dear Parents, Supporters and our Donors!

We appreciate your help and generosity. Thank You for supporting our project. 

We continue to enjoy our social skills activities by learning and teaching how to play cooperatively with toys, peers and adults. Nicholas has difficulty communicating verbally. Using assistive technology and visual helpers, he points to a picture of what he wants to do next at classroom. We friendly remind our parents how important for all children to participate in family activities: looking at books together, pointing to named pictures with mom's support, listening music together, singing a song together, playing with playdough together by looking at mom's face.

Shared reading is one important way to become aware of the rules about printed material. Reading together with children improves their understanding of oral language. Alexander has a difficulty to follow oral directions during a story time, and we let him to pick up his favorite book Panda Bear, Panda Bear and let him to be a leader, choosing which book he wants to read. 

Alexis likes to look at books together, and she enjoys her turning pages activity. Her skipping pages is just step to explore and learn something new. Reading every page with a toddler is not necessary. Every reading experience counts in child's brain. Holding the book, turning the pages, looking at pictures, pointing to named animals, and smiling by touching the textured pictures will help every child to play cooperatively.
