Participant Best of All: Luke

Luke has been making strides in his sight-word reading with his tutor Marissa over the past two sessions of 1:1 Literacy Tutoring. Marissa collaborated with our Program and Volunteer Coordinator to create literacy instruction activities that center around movement and Luke’s sporting interests. This connection has improved his attentiveness during lessons and he has been able to increase his capacity to engage in learning tasks like reading sight-words. Some of his favorite activities are running to each “base” which has sight words taped to them and reading them out loud to “run the bases” and get a home run. He also likes to slam-dunk basketballs after sounding out his words! Luke is working on reading the pre-primer Dolch sight-word list with his tutor and we look forward to him mastering this list along with the names of his family members by the end of the spring session.
