Reference Letter: Kids’ Great Minds
It is my pleasure to provide positive feedback regarding the Kids’ Great Minds program that was conducted at Baythorn P.S.
Under the guidance of Sonia Karabin and Alex Buk, our grade 2/3 class prepared animated video clips of different science concepts. The students were excited to learn how to use a new computer program that could make movies. As they played with the computer program they were immersed in science content for many hours and they can now demonstrate a deeper understanding of the science principles compared to the way the concepts have been traditionally taught.
Sonia and Alex interacted with the students in a very supportive and professional manner. The students had a wide range of skills and needed differing levels of support to be successful. With the expert session planning and classroom management of Sonia and Alex, all students were engaged in the work and successfully produced an animated clip of the science content related to their grade level.
It is extremely important for Sonia and Alex to provide high quality instruction for all students. They have two children in elementary school and realize the impact that solid partnerships with parents, teachers and experts can have on students’ learning. They wanted to share their knowledge and support the work that teachers do in the classroom. They understand that presentations in schools must be affordable so that all students can benefit from enriching learning opportunities.
I have no hesitation recommending ‘Kids’ Great Minds’ as a special service provider for any school.
