Program development and the zoo!
It has been a few weeks since our last CESAR update. No worries, we are
still going strong. :) For the last few weeks we have had Spanish classes
twice a week and an activity one day a week. I am still actively
recruiting other students for the program and hope to have a wide variety
of students apply! Further more, if any one has any fundraising ideas that
they wish to share please email me at email@example.com . The kids
are always asking what trip we have planned for next summer and we could
all do with a little (a lot) of funding.
This month the kids and I have started a session on using our senses to
understand other people and places. The participants from this summer's
trip to Mexico were asked about sights, sounds and smells that were
distinctive to Mexico and how the senses brought back memories of their
time in Cuernavaca. It was very enjoyable and the kids never seem to
forget the best their "greatest achievement" in their opinion, ability
climbing a mountain.
We have gone to the domes and the zoo here in Milwaukee and the boys drew
pictures of the various plants and animals from different regions of the
world and answered questions on why they survive in their particular parts
of the world and what would be needed from these things to adapt to other
parts of the world. Just as people, what would they need to do to adapt to
other people and places?
We have one more week in September and it's going to be great! Come back
and see what we accomplish:)
