In 2012 LITGROUPS started offering 3 workshops per year – one workshop per session during the school year.
What are Workshops?
Workshops are an extended amount of time for students to engage in literacy activities that take more time than our after-school programs allow. Our workshops are hosted when there is no school during the day (a school professional development day, a parent-teacher interviewing day, a Saturday, etc.).
Some examples of workshops that we have hosted:
|Readers’ Theatre||3 levels of script difficulty; multiple read-through’s; expressive reading games; costumes; group performances|
|Cooking – Picnic & Healthy Eating||Small group work; cooking techniques; healthy eating discussions and games; collaborative meal time|
|Cooking – Ethnic Food banquet||Small group work; cooking techniques; cultural awareness & celebration; collaborative meal time|
|Cooking – Italy||Small group work; collaborative meal time; games and activities; cultural awareness – guest presentation|
|Scrapbooking||Students’ personal pages; shared experience reflection; poem writing and selection; group writing; visitor contribution|
|Grow||Science experiments; Biblical stories; live animal visit; plant awareness|
