READER’S THEATRE: Fourth Grade Literacy Program
Readers’ Theater is a three-week program for fourth graders that combines reading and performance. This program not only helps students with fluidity of reading and vocabulary but also with presentation skills and learning about theater. Volunteers participate in a drama/literacy technique, which teaches fourth grade students to present a play by using only a script. Volunteers work with children in three one-hour sessions over three weeks in a classroom setting to bring a production to performance.We are now planning for Reader’s Theater at Warner Girls’ Leadership Academy. Join us there in late January or February or at Greenview School in May.Contact: Estelle Bonchek firstname.lastname@example.org or Shelly Friedman at Shellytf@aol.com
IMAGINATION EXPRESS!The third Tuesday of each month during the school year, a group of volunteers go to Family Promise of Greater Cleveland to work with the children for an hour. The volunteers start with song and story and often have the children act out the story or do movement activities. They follow up with an art activity and close with a snack. It is deeply satisfying to bring joy and laughter to these children whose parents are working to become self-sufficient. Family Promise of Greater Cleveland is a transitional housing facility for homeless families who are rebuilding their lives. Volunteers are needed! Give it a try and you will find that the hugs, giggles, and happiness are infectious! Contact: Adrienne Wasserman email@example.com or 216-409-0398
