"Luther Burbank Elementary School had a wonderful opportunity for students and staff to participate in Literacy in the Making lesson demonstration. The LIME team thoughtfully carried out the engaging activity with built-in components of literacy, making, and social-emotional learning. The students had the hands-on experience to meaningfully construct a content-related product to demonstrate their connection and understanding of the text. The teachers found the activities helpful when integrating a hands-on approach to enrich students' comprehension and depth of knowledge, specifically among our English Language learners. Thank you for the opportunity to creatively immerse our students and teachers in this unique literary journey." Tri Nguyen Ed.D | Principal, Luther Burbank Elementary School
Literacy in the Making is an interactive, engaging, virtually-delivered program that offers students in grades K-5 the opportunity, through making, to deepen their understanding of literature and explore social-emotional themes such as resiliency, empathy, and self-expression. For many students, the experience of reading is about answering a series of written prompts, making is limited to STEM activities, and social-emotional skills are often discussed in a superficial way. Literacy in the Making challenges these narrowly defined practices by bringing these worlds together.
