Site Highlight
October’s Site Highlight goes to Team Myrtle Beach Primary! Team Leader, Mary Pryor captured these photos and wrote, "MB Primary Freedom Readers had a ball discovering how to put together limerick poetry. We also celebrated Jayla and Jamiyah's birthday. Our scholars are having fun writing poetry. One of our star scholars, Eric loved it so much, he wrote a limerick about himself as well as his tutor Ms. Pat. We had another scholar, Magaby share her limerick in Spanish and English. I love the fact that we teach each other.”
Congrats. Annie Robinson - Gold Star Award WINNER
Annie Robinson serves as a tutor at Team Laurel Woods. Her compassion and love for the scholars shines bright! Check out her original quatrain poem she wrote in honor of this session’s theme of poetry!
Peyton and Samuel are twins
They both have amazing grins
I am glad they came to Freedom Readers
I think one day they will both be leaders

They are good at writing their letters
And their reading is getting better
They are both very bright
Hope they love to read at night

I hope they love our reading time
Together learning how to rhyme
Books, poems, adventures too
The look of words looks good on you!
