Some more wonderful middle schoolers joined us this week for our summer adventure. We’re making more progress on Reading Plus and Khan Academy and math facts, but we’re also tasting new things, harvesting the first basil leaves from the plants we planted last week, making smoothies, learning new card games and other games (“Set” is a really good one and we also really like Blockus…), working on times tables, doing projects, writing stories and reading them to the group.
We are SO fortunate to have such great volunteers helping us out! Kate Henson (Wheaton student), Judy Carter (Brooks volunteer), Priyanka Botny (WSU student), Janaea Eads (WSU student) and Derek Cox have been GREAT to have around enjoying our activities with us and teaching and learning new things! And we are very grateful to UP Academy for allowing us to meet there the last four weeks of “camp”.
