About Oops Odelia
Odelia is a reflection of our children. Her thoughts, actions, experiences, and words will not be unfamiliar to those growing up in the Garden City. Like many children, she often finds herself in 'Oops' situations, having to manage her emotions and thoughts, and trying to make 'sound' decisions while growing up. Odelia became a part of our team in 2015.
Please feel free to download the materials from this Oops Odelia section on our website for educational purposes. We hope that the “Oops” situations that Odelia gets herself in will spark engaging conversations between the parents/educators and their children. We take the opportunity to thank our parents, friends and readers for your encouragement and candid feedback on our work from time to time.
We started out creating class materials for GRAM’S as part of our language curriculum, and incorporate character-building values within the content from time to time. To make it more lively and engaging, especially for young learners, we injected the character Odelia (and her illustration) when designing some of our class materials to make it more fun and relatable to the young readers.
