  Academics

Me Too Kids functions on the "School to Work" concept - exposing children at an early age to career choices and the preparation  required for a professional life; therefore building career information is integrated into and used to enforce academic experiences.

Learning to write a letter - letter writing is an integral part of the program. It also helps the student to review what was learned on the trip.

In the process of letter writing students learn vocabulary, spelling and how to write a letter - which many have perhaps never done. 

Adults in the classroom; whether teachers, parents or volunteers assist in spelling and letter ideas.
