Literacy First Tutoring & Mentoring:  

  • Literacy First: k-8 -Literacy first is an accelerated program for students to increase their English language skills. Literacy first will help students reach their grade level for reading abilities. Reading is an important skill that needs to be developed in children. Not only is it necessary for survival in the world of schools, but in adult life as well. 

DFAD tutoring & mentoring program will begin to develop leadership skills, life skills and social skills.  Working in groups and one on one sessions with our youth helping to promote teamwork, but also academics in reading.  This will be a 24 session curriculum based program.  DFAD will work with local professional sport teams to assist with our youth; program operates twice a week.

It is important to encourage reading, especially during a child's early childhood years. Literacy First will provide an accelerated program for students in after-school settings. This will allow ourstudents to increase their English language skills. Literacy First will help students reach their grade level for reading abilities.

HOW THE PROJECT/PROGRAM FOSTERS A LOVE OF READING IN CHILDREN:

Reading is an important skill that needs to be developed in children. Not
only is it necessary for survival in the world of schools, but in adult
life as well. The more children read, the better they become at reading.
The more young children read stories and are read to, the greater their
interest in mastering reading. Reading can open up new worlds and enrich
children lives.
Does reading really matter? YES

Literacy might not seem that important if you've acquired the skill, but if you don't have it your life is likely to be poorer in every sense.

 

Curriculum: Destined for a Dream incorporates our personal plan based on the child's need.  However, we build a lot of the Wilson Reading Program stragies.
