Check out some of the photos of the students exploring and observing the progress of the garden. They even did a little tasting. The Kale was great! These photos were taken at the end of June.
The garden was planted back in May and the vegetables are growing as fast as are students!
The students came together for the first summer session in the beginning of July where they made their own writing journals. We discussed how journals are an important form of communication. The students were excited to begin writing their stories and ideas in them!
Students communicated their thoughts and feelings about different questions posted around the room during a session. They enjoyed both writing their responses as well and reading what their peers had written.
The children at El Sol’s Summer Camp finished their Read a Recipe sessions with all the enthusiasm you’d expect from them. Embracing the occasion they recorded their thoughts in words and creative illustrations. Here’s one of our thriving scribes.
Attended a community garden party on Amsterdam and 100th in New York City. It’s a perfect location for a Read a Recipe for Literacy program. We’re working on it. More to follow!
