WHEW! Are we actually coming to the end of 2020? What a year! All the wonderful plans we had turned out in a very different way. It has truly been a learning experience for all of us.

Literacy Connexus has not slumbered one bit. We are searching and planning ways to reach those in need of our services. We created our blog and are in the process of revamping our Website. You will find such a wealth of information thereOur goal is to have live workshops in the fall of 2021. Please pray with us.

SUGGESTIONS for December classes in person or online. Bingo is a wonderful teaching tool for holidays, pronunciation, verb usage and a wealth of other things you want to teach. In the picture I am with my Christmas Bingo card. I used vocabulary from the Christmas Story. I’ll read the scripture, go over the vocabulary and then play the game. I use the DLTK.com. or you can Google free bingo card maker. You can use any vocabulary you want. I am sending this out to my students ahead of time so we can play the bingo on zoom. There is also a great site myfreebingocards.com/virtual-bingo. It gives complete directions on how to play with your students virtually. Try it! The students really learn with this teaching tool.

We have a very important date for you to put on your calendar – Friday, December 4th at noon. It will be our first Coffee Connexus. This evolved from the symposium in October because many voiced their interest in brainstorming and sharing ideas relevant to today in ESL. Please join us! 
Join Literacy Connexus for the first Coffee Connexusevent on December 4th from 12-1pm. This coffee and conversation event will cover ESL topics such as How to work with students that have low technology issues and Teaching pronunciation in the pandemic. We will host a drawing during the event for two gift cards! Click the link below for the flyer!

Merry Christmas to all of you. Hope to see you at our first Coffee Connexus. Please contact us with any and all questions or ideas you might have. Expect great things, Attempt great things for God, Karen Peiser, ESL Coordinator, Literacy Connexus.
