The Arrival is an incredibly interesting story, as it features no words. However, it tells the story of an immigrant, who moves to a strange new land in search of work to help his family. The new country is incredibly odd, and features animals, items, and buildings which are unlike any in human existence, marking the journey as universal and applicable to any traveler. For these reasons, the story resonates with the students, and they can study the elements of craft and style in a narrative while working on their burgeoning English skills with fun activities.
Next week will be the RAPS team's first week bringing in some fun crafts and creative projects for the students, and we can't wait to be back!
