Students gathered for another exciting afterschool program at Dawson Elementary. Pamela Moore and teachers led students in an interactive read aloud of “Martha Speaks: Meet Martha”. Students were enthusiastic and listened attentively in order to identify keys words and vocabulary throughout the book. Students were also engaged as they took part in a ‘Martha Speaks’ writing center, where they practiced their writing skills and word recognition. Additionally students enjoyed accessing games and videos on the PBS KIDS website. This project is funded by a Ready To Learn grant provided by the Department of Education to the Corporation for Public Broadcasting.
