Review for Hands Across the Sea, Inc., Boston, MA, USA
Hands Across the Sea has given birth to a new idea of setting up a library and resource area at Windsor Forest Pre-school in Grenada. A lot of work was done to enhance the learning environment at our school. Despite of our effort there was still a space in the setting that was underutilized. Thanks to our friends from Hands Across the Sea who acted as the midwife through their kind and generous donation of books and resource materials in bringing that idea to birth.
While awaiting the delivery, all hands came on board to do whatever was necessary in preparing for our gift. Preparation included painting of the floor, constructing and painting of the bookshelf.
The books were received. The library and resource area were set up. One can only imagine what a joy it was to see how happy the children were when they were introduced to the area. Every day after lunch they look forward to going into the area to read their favorite books. Sometimes they choose books and ask their teacher to read to them. They are able to associate and make connection from books to their favorite You Tube videos like Pepper Pig, Dr. Seuss and much more. Teachers also used the books and resource materials to aid in the teaching of the curriculum during small group, large group and plan-Do-Review time.
Parents were also impressed with what they saw. This was the exact words of a parent, “no wonder why Jaydon wants to make me crazy to read to him, so nice.”
It was indeed a kind gesture by our partners at Hands Across the Sea. We will be forever be grateful.
Thank you so much.
