Unexpected things…

My experience at stay true has been wonderful.i thought that the kids in the shelter wouldn't be that smart because i thought with being homeless and all they would miss alot of school.But then mr.saar came up with this idea to have a reading test that would decide what reading level there on,and just about everybody was on grade level or above grade level.this program has really taught me alot about certain things in the world i did'nt know.Read more

Trevor’s Place

When we went to Trevor's Place we were there for only a short amount off time. When we arrived there everybody was on the computer on pbs.org. The kids enjoyed the website with all the fun games. I sat and watched the kids play games and tried to help them if they didn't understand them. Before we got there we wrote down the rules, consequences and rewards for the kids, but to are surprise they already put it up. We stayed there for about thirty minutes because they were leaving early. My favorite…Read more

Trevor’s Place

When we arrived at Trevor's Place we didn't have that much time to spend with the few kids that were there. The reason for this is because at school we collected books and put different stickers on them according to what type of reading level it is such as easy or hard. When we went to Trevor's Place we set up a little library with a bookshelf and put all the books on it. The kids seemed very excited about us coming and bringing books. When I was there I read a few…Read more

Trevor’s Place

Another week at Trevor's Place, another magnificent time. This week the kids were very energetic and quite a handful. Since there are six helpers that are kids three of them including mw colored with the children, and the other three gave the kids a reading test so that we know which level each kid is on. I was very glad that I got to speak to most of the kids because before it seemed like everyone was focusing on one kid, but I tried my best to get around to every kid. I'm…Read more

Trevor’s Place

When I went to Trevor's place I wasn't sure what to expect. I was very nervous because I'm always nervous when I meet new people. I thought the kids there would be bad and rude and wouldn't appreciate us coming;I thought wrong. When we arrived at Trevor's Place we set up the games that we had brought from Toys R' Us. After that the kids came in and I helped one of the little boys in 4th grade finish his math homework. After that we played charades and the kids enjoyed acting different…Read more

Homeless In America

I think most people treat homeless people as if they are useless. Most people look down on them and think there too lazy and just want to ask for money. A lot of people don't really realize that homeless people are just people that are going through hard times in their life. When I see a homeless person I don't look down on them because I know they are just like me and who am I to judge them? If I think the person is on drugs or drinking alcohol and the ask…Read more
