Fourteen literacy volunteers came to the Adult Ed Center on a beautiful summer afternoon, to participate in a session on “Creating Your Own Tutor Toolbox,” offered by Dr. Robin Lovrien.  She delivered a wealth of information on using game-based teaching methods  to practice phonological skills. Volunteers took out their scissors, their colored markers and index cards to create variations of “Go Fish,” “Concentration” and board games that provide activities for rhyming, and word, syllable and sound awareness.
