I am currently starting a program that helps with the literary challenged elementary school children. What this group will be focusing on, is helping the kids with their reading and writing skills. Once or twice a week a few students from the high school will come down to the elementary school and read with them helping them with their reading comprehension. It is important that children are capable of reading and understanding what it is that they are reading. The percentage of children that can read and actualy want to read are declining. That is why it is important for me to help as much as I can within my community. The town that I live in has, at the most, 5,000 people inhabiting it. The classes are smaller and the students are becoming lazier and lazier by the day. hopefully, with my help, more students will be able to prepare themselves for the journeys ahead.
