Everyday with my students is eventful. I consider small victories breakthroughs. Yesterday I decided that we should learn a bit about Columbus Day. I found a short play on the internet and printed the script. The girls are having a blast! They all claim to hate reading, so I didn't think they would enjoy reading and acting out a play. Well, they had the idea to practice it and perform it during our fundraiser at the end of this month. I'm so proud of them! Some are natural born actors!
Maybe I could get a theatre friend or two to come in and volunteer to help them??? We are a very small and new (and poor) organization and we need all the help we can get. It is amazing to actually find something the girls are excited about. My girls are fantastic but come from rough backgrounds. My organization is helping them to make something of themselves and to see how people can succeed. Any guest speakers at all, not just theatre, would be great. We also always need people to help with things like reading, math, teaching skills (sewing, knitting, etc.). Any takers?
