One of the main focuses of our program is Literacy and teaching children to love reading. So, while my mom was here she thought she would work on literacy by reading the book of Caperucita Roja, or Little Red Riding Hood.
Of course, this is my mom, who does not just read a book; she acted it out… with props. 🙂
Then she had the kids take the props and play different parts and do the story themselves, which the loved.
The Long Term Volunteers (who are in charge of each classroom) assure me that it was not only entertaining, but educational. The kids got very into telling the story and playing the parts.
