This week we prepare to celebration the end of our Africa Bridge Reading Challenge. We will be learning the art of drumming, dancing, singing and story telling from our artist in residence, Okaidja Alfroso.
We are learning to celebrate with music and dance just like the students in Africa do. Watch this video that the Africa Bridge Kid’s Team made one year as a gift for our friends in Tanzania. We combined videos from the students there with our own to show what we all have in common: a love of music, dance, laughter, and love.
We have so much to celebrate! We have been using our reading skills to raise money to help improve the lives of the students in the Kisondela schools in Tanzania. We want them to be able to attend school just like us. We want them to have a home, enough food, and a loving family. We are proud to know we are a part of making that happen.
Lastly, we found this great video that shows how music and dance are a universal language. It is so great to see how many people all over the world express their joy this way. I think there should always be a reason to dance! Let’s do it!
What are you most proud of with the reading challenge?
