Literature Circle   Leave a comment

Eleven years ago, when I taught 5th grade in Louisville, literature circles was an important part of the learning process for my students. In groups, they read specific books, answered questions, and presented their learning through creative arts.

Now I am teaching a literature circle in Iquitos! Twelve children, ages 9 through 16, come every Saturday (Meshi, Lucia, Greysi, Jahasiel, Gabriela, Barbara, Nicol, Dimas, Danna, Jairo, Priscila, and Oscar). We are reading through CS Lewis´s The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe, in Spanish.

The class includes prayer time and Bible devotional, Scripture memorization, an English lesson, and refreshments. Towards the end, the kids will present what they learned through a drama or other creative means, and the last class, we will watch the movie.

The cost for this class, which began in September and runs until early December, is $10/student (photocopies, snacks), so $120 in total, if you´d like to make a special donation. Thanks!
