PROGRAM

Morning: Italian Theater

Leticia Dias, current Italian teacher, at La Scuola will lead this session. The students will work on expanding their oral and reading comprehension through Reader’s Theater, which are scripts adapted from leveled books.

Afternoon: Coding and Scratch

Children are digital natives because they are accustomed to technology and they know how to “read” it. On the other hand, many do not know how to “write” technology. Teaching coding in a creative and fun way is important in enhancing awareness about digital technology. Children will be introduced to the concept of coding through computers. During the week, students will use Scratch, a key program that eases the process of writing interactive stories, games, and animation. With the support of mobile apps and software, children will create their own stories or music.
