Literacy Volunteers needed
Arts on Superior is sponsoring a 13-week Story to Literacy arts residency for the third grade students at Minnehaha Elementary School in Two Harbors. Volunteers are needed beginning Jan. 28, or Feb. 4, to mentor students in small writing groups. Training will be provided. Volunteers will be needed from 1- 2:30 p.m. weekly for thirteen weeks.
Last year the volunteer mentors, students, and teachers had a wonderful time working with local storyteller, Rachel Nelson. Each week the students will hear a story, physically act out what they heard, and then write their own stories.
The volunteer mentors work with small groups of students on topics such as main idea, main character, and beginning, middle, and end. Our goal is to create a “culture of writing” with the students at Minnehaha Elementary School and in the community.
Please call or email Jan at AEOA if you are interested in volunteering. She can be reached at 834-2539.
