Here’s what else we’ve been up to this month. If you are interested in bringing a program to your school or organization, email executive director Jennifer Chauhan at firstname.lastname@example.org.
In one of our first classes, M. avoided and resisted writing at all costs. I tried using my whole bag of tricks to make him feel comfortable during our after-school writing club for 4th and 5th graders. I showed him pictures of my dog, Bear, told him I had a son close to his age, and asked him about his family and hobbies. He was always willing to engage in these conversations but still resisted putting pen to paper.
