What Happens NextBaltimore

February 14, 2015 - April 24, 2015

WLOY Loyola Radio's award-winning, FREE program, What Happens Next is an exciting way to promote literacy skills, self-confidence, and public speaking proficiency in children. This program encourages young students, ranging in age from 6-12, to write for pleasure, expanding their imagination and communication skills in the process. Children are read the beginning of an original, suspenseful story. It is then up to each child to create his or her own unique conclusion to the story. After each child writes their ending to the story, with help from our team provided if needed, they are encouraged to practice reading their story aloud. The story is then recorded in our production studio, where its young author is encouraged to read with enthusiasm. These stories are compiled into the show, What Happens Next, which is broadcast on WLOY 1620 AM and streamed online at www.wloy.org every weekend. This is a great option for an extra activity for home-schooled children to partake in and document for home-schooling purposes.
