Fun in the Sun Encourages Public Speaking

In pod 4 (Blue group), we journal everyday. I typically have students share their response to the writing prompt out loud.  I had one student who was not confident in her reading skills and never wanted to share because she had to read aloud.  After two weeks at Fun in the Sun and with continued encouragement from myself and fellow campers, she had the courage to share her entry aloud!  I asked her how she felt after reading her entry and she said she felt great about herself because she had make it a goal for the summer to be able to share.  Now, I can count on her to be one of the first hands to go up when I ask for volunteers to share.
