Brianna and Jerome attend Frangus Elementary School. They were registered for the Read2Succeed program, by their first grade teacher.
By participating in the program, the hope was to help build their vocabulary and reading skills.
Upon beginning the program, "they were quite shy," shares R2S volunteer, Lisa Oden. However, slowly they began to become more engaged and confident with the new words they learned." Oden goes on to share that seeing their eyes light up when they recognized a new vocabulary word and watching them excitedly highlight that word in their book was priceless!
This past school year, Brianna and Jerome were registered for Read2Succeed’s second grade program to work on their reading fluency. Once again, Lisa would work with Brianna and Jerome.
"I have seen tremendous growth in their comprehension and social skills since last year. My shy kids are growing into strong, confident students who are eager to do their best. They even congratulate each other on a job well done after each session! ." - Lisa Oden
