A Quiz for you…

Neither of the girls in this video clip has been to kindergarten yet.  One of the girls, however, has been in the GIRLStart program at Girls Inc. for a full school year.  Her language development over the course of the past year is amazing.  She has also developed great skills in alphabet recognition and writing.  She is beginning to sound out words – decoding!  Can you tell by listening to their oral speaking skills which girl has been with us for one year and which girl just started?  Click here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jWl8LIbG5bU

The good news is that ALL of our pre-k girls will be able to great progress in GIRLStart.  Next year, (spolier alert:  the newest Girls Inc. pre-k member is Jamila!) Jamila will be talking a mile a minute, too.  Watching her progress day by day and month by month is an exciting process.

Just in case you aren’t convinced, here is some more of Fatuma (nicknamed “Famo”) dominating the conversation.  And we mean that in a good way:  http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JdPEtMDq6nA
