Literacy Learning – Mindfulness

Happy summer! Since we’re focusing on you in this month’s blog, I thought it might be fun to learn a little mindfulness yoga to help bring you inner peace and relaxation. Please click on the link below to see a video with Justine Dooley, the founder of Premakarini Quantum Yoga Coaching and Meditation Studio   .  She’s developed a video just for our Oasis tutors. You may even want to share it with your students to help with their concentration and to bring a sense of calmness to their day. Namaste!

Summer Reading

How do you feel about eating vegetables? Were there vegetables you disliked as a child, and now you think they are delicious? We feature the book, “I Will Never Not Ever Eat a Tomato” by Lauren Child. In this story Charlie very creatively attempts to persuade his sister Lola to try eating various vegetables.

Recipes from the Garden

Summer means lots of veggies and fruit will be available from your own garden or the local farmers market.  Here are some great recipes you can make with your harvest this summer.

National Oasis Tutoring Survey

Tutoring Survey ButtonOasis Tutoring asks all Tutors, Teachers, Principals/Building Liaisons and District Facilitators to participate in the annual Oasis tutoring survey. It is important as it provides Oasis feedback for improvement of the program and measurable data to report to funders. Thank you in advance for taking a moment to share this year’s tutoring experiences prior to the Covid-19 break.

Helpful tips for taking the survey:

  1. Taking the survey on a laptop or desktop computer is recommended instead of a mobile device or tablet.
  2. After clicking on the link provided, click on the role you serve in the program (“Tutor”).
  3. You may receive other requests or reminders to take the survey, please only take it once.

Please complete the survey by Friday, June 19th. A heart-felt thank you if you have already completed your tutoring survey. If not, please take a minute to do so. We need to hear from all Oasis Tutoring sites and centers across the country.

Take a break and relax.
