Cub Pride - October 23, 2014
Cub Club, an after-school tutoring program, is in full swing at MES. This year more than sixty MES students stay after school on Tuesdays and Thursdays to sharpen their reading and writing skills.
Cub Club begins with a healthy snack and then students gather in small groups with an experienced teacher for sixty minutes of guided reading instruction. The additional instructional time allows students to practice phonics, fluency, vocabulary, comprehension, and writing at a level based on their learning needs.
When students were asked, “Why do you like Cub Club?” some of their responses included the following:
“We get to read and do fun things!”
“We have a snack.”
“We do our letters.”
“We get to spell and write.”
Cub Club students are invited to attend based on reading assessments taken during regular class time. The district provides transportation home each Tuesday and Thursday. This program is an integral part of our intervention system to help struggling students in reading.
