The video below discusses the importance for children to read during the summer. It is a real eye opener. Even if you don't register for our summer reading and math program, make sure your child is READING at least 20 minutes everyday.
Research has consistently shown that children who are not reading on grade level by the end of third grade are likely to have trouble learning in all classroom subjects in higher grades.
We have developed a successful summer reading program that will help to support and minimize the "summer slide" or the summer set back that children experience during the summer months. a brain-based approach to learning. It provides students with the foundational language and cognitive skills, intensive practice, and guided reading help that they need to catch up, once and for all.
Our summer reading program will address research-based reading instruction, which includes the essential reading skills for students in grades K-3 and struggling readers in grades 4-8:
Phonemic awareness activities help students hear, identify, and manipulate individual sounds to improve their word reading and reading comprehension.
Phonics lessons teach students the relationship between the letters of written language and the sounds of spoken language to help them understand and use the alphabetic principal in reading.
Fluency Cards and lessons provide practice in reading a text accurately and quickly, freeing students to understand what they read.
Vocabulary instruction and practice teaches students the words they need to communicate effectively in speaking, listening, and reading.
Comprehension lessons teach students strategies to become purposeful and active readers who understand what they read.
Students practice these strategies in both instructional and independent reading.
It is an integrated supplemental program that builds reading skills to prepare your child for the next grade. Students will participate in an engaging social-emotional literacy learning environment with book related activities including read-alouds, group discussions, independent reading, writing activities, games, technology integration, songs and more.
We utilize a research-based reading intervention program designed for maximum academic growth. The program follows a lesson plan that addresses decoding, encoding, oral reading fluency, and comprehension to support struggling readers and writers. A center Rotation Model will also be utilized where students will be rotated between teachers to receive individualized reading instruction.
