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.
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.
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.
It’s baseball season. It brings to mind an exciting session we held some years ago in Jupiter. The children went on a field trip–a true field trip–to Roger Dean Stadium. There, the children met some key players and got the chance to run the bases. Their stories told it all. Thank you, Kristina, for the great outing.
Many thanks to all those who supported us last Wednesday and contributed to the Great Give. Your donations to RRL count. We raised enough money to run a new Read a Recipe for Literacy program in Florida starting next September!
Sincere thanks from all of us. More to follow about the new program as the plans progress.
The RRL children went on a field trip to Charnews Farm recently and had a wonderful time. They were treated to a tour of the Agriculture center by one of our most loyal and dedicated partners, Denise Markut. Denise is the Stewardship Manager at Charnews and has been involved with RRL for years. She shared her knowledge with the children, who now know how to plant potatoes. Just ask one of them what an eye of a potato is. Denise’s enthusiasm is contagious!
