Kids are getting older, we want them to read Russian classics and love their 2nd culture and language, but it is often a struggle. In a casual, fun atmosphere we will be discussing various short stories and poems appropriate for 12+ age kids. We will begin with Pushkin!! Did you realize that your kids forgot those wonderful fairy tales you read to them when they were kids? There are many grown up themes in addition to beautiful poetry.
- Will continue on to carefully selected and age-appropriate works from Chekhov, Gogol, Zoschenko, Bulgakov and some modern worthwhile works.
- We will read poems of Lermontov, Akhmatova, Tyutchev, Yesenin, Tsvetaeva and others. We will talk about the work and life of each writer.
- Kids need to know how to read in Russian or have willing parents who will read TO them. Preferably both 😊.
