Literacy Circle at Saturday Academy, Futures Academy

UB LPP’s Saturday Academy Literacy Corner at Marva J. Daniels Futures on March 10th brought together students from across the district in engaging and challenging literacy activities as delivered by Lisa Kulka (Assistant Director), Anthony Bhasin (UB Honors College Volunteer), Nicholas Bourque (UB Honors College Volunteer) and Jenna Vecchio (UB Honors College Volunteer). This iteration’s Literacy Corner included a group reading station, in which the books Malala and Remember Me were read aloud to two groups of attending students (one elementary-level group consisting of K-4th grades, and one middle-level group consisting of 5th-8th grades). An independent reading section was also offered, in which both students chose books at their grade level to read and record on their Independent Reading Log, with four students winning a prize of Liberty wristbands. Finally, an art station fusing free draw and themes from the independent and group reading books was offered, and students showed off their reflections from the reading through artistic expression. With a total of approximately 40 attendees, this Literacy Corner was a huge success!
