In July, a Kumon Reading Program was started at the Miguel Hidalgo School in the community of San Luis Temalacayuca, for 38 children who received training to enhance their reading and comprehension skills under the Kumon method. This Program aims at developing each student’s ability to read and understand a variety of texts, and to nurture a life-long habit of reading for education and enjoyment.
Furthermore, a Kumon Math program has been established to develop numerical sense, mental calculation and reasoning in the students, as well as to develop all the arithmetic and algebraic processes that a student requires in his or her educational process: this method consists in solving a series of carefully levelled exercises according to school grade, accompanied by weekly problem-solving.
During the course of this project, significant progress was made by students, who achieved outstanding results in local competitions.
