Read to Rise school visit
So privileged to have joined Steve and the team on their visit to Makhoarane Primary School. Such a well thought out and effective program presented to the kids.
The process observed
Step 1: introduce them to new vocabulary (for the older kids – language principle) through active participation on charts.
Step 2: Read the story to them.
Step 3: Engage with them through asking them “comprehension” questions.
Step 4: Ask then about the life lesson in the story.
Step 5: Give them their own books.
Step 6: Everyone reads aloud, reinforcing they can all read.
Step 7: Sing a song (with actions) reinforcing what was learnt.
We presented to a “new group” of Grade 3 pupils who exposed to Oaky for the first time and to a Grade 4 group receiving their 3rd book in the Oaky series.
The highlight for me, seeing how excited the Grade 4 group was to see Steve and the team return and how much they remembered from the previous sessions. A clear indicator that this is an effective program !!!
Thank you again to all our athletes, partners and sponsors for making this possible.
