Instagram post 18029056486240824 It's "What's That?" Wednesday!

Ever heard of a horned frog? This frog gets its name from the points above its eyes that look like horns. And if it weren’t for those bugged-out eyes, you might never even notice the horned frog. It blends in perfectly with its leafy home! . . . . . .

October is the month of literacy awareness. Throughout the month, we will share with you how we cultivate reading culture at the Tumaini Schools. You have seen our weekly posts about the D.E.A.R. program at Tumaini Junior. These bi-weekly sessions have permitted students to become fond of leisurely reading.

At our secondary school, the opening of the library has created similar opportunities for our older students. Since not all of our students come from Tumaini Junior, we have procured reading material at all levels to help build confidence. 
Magreth, a Tumaini Junior alum and fourth year Tumaini Senior student, says that she is happy to see we have encyclopedias and memoirs, but also a dense collection of Ranger Rick magazines. Now, first year students without previous access to a library can get comfortable with light reading, so by year four they have no apprehension about engaging with complex material. Building confidence, builds interest!

Parents' Choice Award-winning Ranger Rick Jr. Magazine from @rangerrickmags and @nationalwildlife is well-designed, much beloved, teaches children about animals and employs the creatures in activities constructed to hone beginning reading skills including letter recognition, vocabulary and forging connections between words and images. The photography is captivating, the illustrations are realistic and appealing; all images are accompanied by age appropriate text. Page turners, independent or guided, will delight in the animal-themed games, activities including a craft or recipe, and a pullout poster.

Introducing our morning basket!
For the rest of the Summer and on the days when I homeschool Zae when school starts up I’ll be implementing a morning basket.  It will have items like coloring books, crayons, books, nature magazines, educational flash cards, puzzles, and other random items I can get together.  It will change with the seasons and holidays and I’ll rotate a few items out every day or so.  This morning it was a big hit!  It kept her occupied while I cooked breakfast and did a little bit of light cleaning before we started our day.♥️
