Let’s go on an adventure! Read and write stories. This class brings together all of the aspects of our programming and takes students on an outward and inward adventure. We will read books that traverse the universe of  emotion and use what we learn to create how we interact with the world. 

The Empowerment Factory offers several tracks for the Reading Adventures Class. In each model students work together to create community artwork, talk about how to work together effectively, and live with empathy.  

Each session begins with Mindful Moments as we get focused on the present. Students participate in a presentation of an illustrated children’s story that prompts class discussion about a variety of social and emotional concepts, such as kindness, feelings, positive thinking, perseverance, acceptance, empathy, and diversity. The rest of the class is dedicated to creative projects that reinforce the messages from the story and discussion. The class is wrapped up with a whole group cleanup and packing our crafts to travel into the world, a little more empowered than when we arrived. 

Reading Adventures:

Students read and write stories, work together to perform plays using puppets you make yourselves, along with making crafts and kindness cards. Each week we will read a different illustrated children’s story that prompts a class discussion about a variety of social and emotional concepts, such as kindness, feelings, positive thinking, perseverance, acceptance, empathy, and diversity. Reading Adventures will take you on a journey of art, literacy, creativity, and mindfulness, building on our social emotional skills and fostering a love of literacy, open mindedness, and civic pride.
