OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA The students at the DIF school where KKIS volunteers are now working spent a day playing Bingo with their vocabulary words this week. We printed Bingo cards with 25 words they have learned from daily use of the computer program provided by Brillkids called the Little Reader Program. The volunteers held larger images representing the words and called them out one at a time as the children covered their word boxes with dry pinto beans. Soon there was a winner at one of the tables and many more followed. A bag of piñata candy served as prizes for the winners and was shared by all at the end of our time together.
Their progress is remarkable as most of these children knew no English when we began introducing this program about a month ago. One can see in the photos that each child recognized many words and covered their bingo card.
We spend time with these students both Tuesday and Thursday from 11 – 12. If you would like to join us please be in touch through the Contact Us tab on this page.

    • The school year ends in mid-July and starts again mid-August. If you are here while school is in session you are certainly welcome. The students are aged 10 – 17 so young children are not appropriate in the classroom but teenagers have helped. We will be packing bags with school supplies during July and making deliveries in August and we can always use help for that. Please let me know your dates and we will put you to work.
      Thanks,
