What:

This six-week SocialSunday program is aimed at building a love of literacy, and in some cases, repairing the relationship kids have with reading due to tough early experiences of shame or frustration around learning to read.  We use games, fun activities, challenges, reading aloud together, and enjoying some really great stories to show how reading can unlock all kind of awesome opportunities for FUN!  Older kids will have an opportunity to ‘learn by teaching’ in a way that respects their age and stage.

  • Practice recognizing sight words in real life situations (eg scavenger hunts)
  • Practice sequencing (eg first/then activities, unscrambling step-by-step instructions to complete a fun challenge)
  • Following recipes to create delicious treats in the kitchen
  • Following instructions to make slime, create crafts etc
  • Listening to funny stories and reading out loud with a coach
  • Planning, writing and producing your very own book!

Where:

144 Wilson St E, Ancaster
