Rastamouse

Things were a bit disturbing at the drop in center today, more so than usual. Lot of shouting at children by matron, for what I’m not sure. Filthy, also as usual, made worse by the rain. Not as many children coming to reading, which makes me sad. Got a new girl last Tues tho, which was good. She’s a tall 13, with a reading ability far below where she should be for her age. She’s a quick learner tho, and good natured. Got a new boy today as well- 10yrs old, and an excellent reader. We did some maths at the end, to exercise a different part of the brain. I was by myself, which wasn’t a problem, since there weren’t many kids. I was able to do one-on-one, as well as group reading with them. They asked about the sirs, and the nice lady, wanting to know when they’re going to come back. And then the usual wrapping of themselves all over me when it’s time for me to leave, begging me not to go, to stay a little longer…

kids enjoying Rastamouse. One little boy read it over and over, loudly shouting out "IRIE!" at the end each time. lol
