These lasts few months have been quite busy with the registration of new kids, curious, full of imagination and energy. The “older” kids are proud to be the one able to explain and the new ones quickly integrated to the group.
This month was the birthday of Anthony Brown, one of Clara Luna’s favorite writer, so we spend the month reading his books, especially his version of King-Kong. Since the book is large, we split it into 4 parts and read it through 2 weeks. Erveyday, the children had to try and imagine what would happen next, and you can see their imagination does not have boarders.
This book had so much success that we decided to work on it with the teenagers. They had to read it out loud to practice their oral expression, and they finished it in a day!
To continue our partnership with a French association, Yanapanaku, the teenager’s group, that did a “crepes” recipe, made thanks to a video from the French teenagers prepared a video explaining how to make a ceviche, a typical dish from the Ecuadorian coast. We are looking forward to receive the video of them trying to cook this dish !
At the beginning of the months, the children took part with their parents to the closing session of the program “escuela para padres” (school for parents). A big game in teams was organized with questions, games, challenges such as dancing competitions. It was amazing to see families compete against one another and parents having at least as much fun as the kids.
See you soon !
