LEARN WHILE HAVING FUN WITH OUR NUMBERS SPELLED OUT SERIES!
Failure in math often starts with trouble reading. According to the Canadian Council on Learning, 40% of children lack the reading skills needed to succeed in the workplace. As adults, they’re more likely to end up in low-paying jobs and to experience financial hardship.
Our platform Numbers Spelled Out offers free podcasts. These podcasts deal with math, money, saving, spending, and the value of things. Content is tailored to different age groups. There are original texts, podcasts, reading suggestions, and a quiz, all designed to promote play with numbers.
THE MARITIME SERIES
Since 2018, the TD-Blue Metropolis Children’s Festival has presented a series of youth workshops at the libraries of riverside communities on the South Shore of Montreal. Within this context, storytellers well as children’s authors have facilitated creative workshops that mix writing and drawing in order to instill in children an awareness of the world of the Saint-Lawrence in particular and of the nature of Quebec more generally.
In 2022-23, the series was enriched by a special visit. Nicolas Bérubé, a biologist associated with the Port of Montreal, employed visual and other support materials to illustrate the steps taken to protect the swallow and bat populations that frequent the shores of the river.
VEGGIE PATCH AVENTURERS
Combining literature, music and ecology, Veggie Patch Adventurers proposes a unique second-language learning experience for grade-school children.
With creative writing workshops created by bilingual authors (French and English) and visits from gardening and cooking specialists who cater to children, two language immersion classes will explore themes related to good life habits and will familiarize themselves with the vegetables of the garden. Their “adventure” in the veggie patch will lead them to compose (lyrics and music) a bilingual song.
