Mini-Grant #9: Wesley Academy

 

High-quality after-school and summer program at the Wesley House, 2001 N. 35th St. in Omaha.

www.wesleyacademy.org

 

 

 

After School Treats is providing one creative enrichment activity per school day for the 25 students in this effective program, with plans for a youth learning garden with daily garden lesson plans for the 2010 growing season.

 

If you would like to sponsor this effort, the cost is about $1 per day per child. So $25 buys one creative enrichment activity from the After School Treats lineup, and $125 buys a week's worth.

 

After School Treats lesson plans are now being paired with a book in special After School Treats kits for independent learning. Topics range from "Shakespeare and Hip Hop" to science experiments to art projects. The books have some link to the creative activity to extend the learning and enjoyment.

 

These kits are fun to do, but at the same time they build reading comprehension and writing skills for each student enrolled in the Wesley House program.

 

Upon opening a kit, the student must first read the book and then respond in writing to three prompts in a special After School Treats notebook. Then the student can do the fun, creative activity. The supplies and instructions are in the kit.

 

After all 25 Wesley House students have had an opportunity to do the kits, they'll be swapped out for a new set.

 

Please contact susan@afterschooltreats.com if you would like to donate money for the kits or the learning garden, volunteer to help with this innovative after-school program, or if you have quality children's books to donate for the kits, particularly if the characters are African-American and the reading level is at or below Grade 8.
