Once Upon A Time in Sri Lanka... - Room to Read Blog

Beginning with the end in mind- Our Children changing the world.

Check this out!
Once Upon A Time in Sri Lanka... - Room to Read Blog

I have decided to make it “Official”

I began tutoring (Pre-K-6th) in 2007, as well as volunteering in local Adult Education programs in addition to being a substitute teacher in a local district. I have a passion for education personally and for educating others. I have given resources to many to start and operate a business, so I believe I will use these same resources and contacts to start my own. No more delay!

The plan is complete, the board is coming together nicely. Next will be 5013c status. There are so many people that need educational opportunities that can not afford the mainstream avenues, not to mention the social phobia for young and old of everyone or anyone knowing "You can't Read! "

Between the Lions . Literacy Tips: Everyday Literacy | PBS KIDS!

Between the Lions . Literacy Tips: Everyday Literacy PBS KIDS!: "Everyday Literacy Vocabulary Building Teach your kids new words We have many vocabulary-building features on this Web site including Word Play and Synonym Sam's Lab. Our Printables area also has some original word games. Comment on new words as they come up in stories, on TV or on the radio. Introduce synonyms - words that mean the same thing. If your kids talk about 'the day after today,' introduce the word 'tomorrow.' Correct word errors with simple examples or corrections. If they say 'We runned home!' you could say, 'Wow! You RAN home?' Or, more simply, 'You could say that you RAN home.' Find books that your kids like at the library. You can then use subjects they're interested in to add new vocabulary to their conversation. Open a dictionary and pick a word they probably know. See if they can guess the word by reading them the definition. Help them understand that some words have several meanings, like 'watch.' Check out our tips in 'The Big Book of Words.' Write out pairs of opposites on bits of paper and get your kids to match them up. Introduce a new word and ask them to guess which definition is right? Is HALIBUT a fish, a game or a President? They'll want to learn more when they're having fun! Include kids in your conversations with other adults by using words they can mostly understand. Then they will be able to learn any new ones by getting the meaning from the surrounding sentence. Pick a new word every day and teach it to your kid. Use it so they hear it in context. Encourage them to use it, and use it yourself. Even over-using it will be fun."
