The two week reading foundation session will build solid groundwork for their phonemic awareness, fluency and comprehension.
Your child can begin learning a new language or continue to strengthen their foreign language skills. Campers will learn about some fun and interesting topics with lessons that will include songs and games. Our teachers are native speakers and are part of the Beauvoir Language Programs during the school year.
The two week math session is designed to help your summer student not only retain what they have learned when it comes to math but progress with their mathematical thinking, understanding and problem-solving with a carefully crafted curriculum.
Art with Ms. Gittleman
Working with items primarily found around the house, we will spend four weeks exploring art and the different places we can find it. Though the program will build on the previous week’s work, it is also designed to allow artists to jump in at any point. Artists will begin to develop their eye for perspective, complimentary colors, and design. Artists will also have an opportunity to continue projects at home with extended activities if they so choose. I can’t wait to see what we create together!
