I will be participating as a volunteer in Literacy Hour at The Shine Centre in Cape Town. Twice a week children in Grades 2 and 3 who are second-language learners meet with volunteers for one-on-one support to boost their English reading, writing, and talking skills. The hour is divided into four 15-minute sections – Word Play, Have a Go Writing, Paired Reading, and Shared Reading. This is a great You Tube link about The Shine Centre – http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ar93eQoGzxw.
Thank you for visiting my travel blog. I created it to sustain memories and share my adventures as a solo traveler. Traveling satisfies my curiosity about foreign countries and cultures. Exploring Saigon and Istanbul, watching tango dancers in Buenos Aires, hiking Cape Town's Table Mountain and Torres del Paine in Patagonia, getting lost in New Zealand's wilderness, gorilla trekking in Uganda, enjoying Berlin's Festival of Lights, whale watching in South Africa, or viewing animals during an African game drive - I share these experiences in my travel blog! When on the road, I post often - not so much between trips. If you like the stories, follow me for regular updates.
