ALOHA Mind Math unveiled new 2014 initiatives at their third quarter franchise meeting. One new student program being instituted is a language arts competition for elementary school children, a national vocabulary bee.
“We wanted to introduce something that would offer a fun competitive environment where both kids and their families would be able to enjoy. We tested the program this year and received excellent feedback from many parents and kids alike. We are very excited to roll out Vocab Bee, a vocabulary-based competition,” said Mani Manickavelu, ALOHA CEO and President.
The national vocabulary bee will be held mid-year 2014 at all of ALOHA Mind Math’s learning centers.
“Americans need spelling bees and vocabulary tests," according to John McWhorter, Columbia University associate professor of English and comparative literature and author of What Language Is. “It’s (spelling and vocabulary tests) getting back in touch with loving our native language, something ordinary in most cultures on earth.”
The national vocabulary competition coordinates with ALOHA Mind Math's Mission to teach and advance children’s crucial reading and language skills, which they will employ throughout their education and later into their careers.
Parents who want to give their children a good foundational base or a broader skill set, or give their high-achieving children an opportunity to excel will find ALOHA Mind Math’s after school enrichment reading programs and math programs valuable.
