Schoolkids ELA Meetup

We have been hinting at this for awhile, but it is finally coming together: The Schoolkids English Language Arts Meetup!

The aim of this meetup is to give English language speakers in grades 2 – 5 a bit of playful support in their English language skills. It is not an English as a Foreign Language class; the curriculum is much more inspired by primary school Language Arts classes in countries where English is the native language. The meetup is particularly aimed at giving English-speaking children who attend German schools the kind of Language Arts learning experience which they miss, since their schools only offer English as a foreign language (children in other situations are also welcome; just let us know if there is something unusual about your child’s situation or if they have a particular need).

The initial meetup series will be five 90-minute sessions on consecutive Saturdays in November and December. A trained English teacher will lead the group in reading, listening to and discussing a challenging chapter book together; executing a collaborative project which involves creating characters, interacting and writing short stories; and playing interactive language-learning and vocabulary-enriching games. If there is sufficient interest, the possibility exists to continue the meetups in the new year.

Without further ado, Info in (somewhat) Brief:
Dates: 10. November, 17. November, 24. November, 1. December, 8. December
Time: 13:30 – 15:00
Location: Helen Doron Learning Centre, Berliner Str. 118, 13187 Berlin (NOTE: NOT the Wichertstr. or any other Helen Doron Centre! This is the one NEAR THE PANKOW TRAIN STATION.)
Requested Donation: 60€ for Saturday Club members; 75€ for non-members (15€/12€ per session). This goes to the teacher, books, supplies and – last but not least – room rent.
Please note: We are asking students to commit to all 5 classes, with the option to cancel at the end of the first session (only students who commit to all 5 classes will receive the book). This is both because we need to order supplies in advance, and because students will not make progress if they miss classes.
