The Scribes at El Sol

We had some enthusiastic writers at the last Read a Recipe session, El Sol Summer Camp.   They all wrote about their favorite activity at camp.    Snow day was a big hit as was the visit to the Busch Wildlife Sanctuary, in Jupiter.    And then there was the field trip to We Rock the Spectrum Kid’s Gym in Tequesta.    

 

Garden Party in New York City

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!

Congratulations to….

Big congratulations to one of our Read a Recipe students, Kaitlin, who won the creative Bookmark Contest this year.    Way to go!    Reading leads you places.

Summer Session 2017 Begins

The Read a Recipe for Literacy Summer Session started yesterday at Floyd Memorial Library.   The children were excited to see how much the garden had grown since their last visit.   After visiting the garden and tasting the kale, husk tomatoes, and herbs they began to make their summer journals from up-cycled material.    And then the writing began.   To be continued next week!   Big thanks to Chef Julie Eyester.

El Sol Summer Camp

The children at the summer camp were working on geography this week.    Continents and oceans and why it’s called the Artic Circle.    They know how to take turns and answer the questions.   Communicate with the hand.   

Writing from the Sea

Here’s proof that we have very observant writers in Read a Recipe.   The lucky children in Florida who get to the beach these days may see signs of nesting turtles near the dunes.  Come back next week to learn more.
