Summer Literacy Camp 2014
We are holding a Summer Literacy Camp for Beginning/Early Readers the summer of 2014.The week is yet to be decided and the time will be from 9:30 – 12:30. Cost is $20/day. We will explore a different theme each day. Some possible themes may include: fairy tales, water play, cooking, toys, bubbles and more bubbles! Feel free to ask your child what themes she might enjoy studying and let me know.Students will engage in individualized reading and writing work at their cutting edge of learning, under the supervision of a certified reading teacher with over ten years of teaching experience. This camp is designed for students reading between a kindergarten and second grade reading level. We will work in small and whole groups to practice reading, writing and word building together. We will also play games, make and eat snacks, and do some group building to balance social learning with academics.
Please email me if you are interested in registering and/or have a preference about when this will be scheduled.
Fall 2014 Registration Now Open!
We are accepting registrations for fall classes. There will be a Tuesday/Thursday class for ages 3-6 from 9:30 – 12:30. We may also offer a class for 6-9 year olds on Wednesdays, so please email me if you are interested in either (or both) options. I will need a minimum of 6 that are able to commit for the full year in order to run each program, so don’t be shy if you have questions or would like to schedule time to talk.
OUR MONTESSORI-STYLE PRESCHOOL AND LITERACY ACTIVITIES
Our daily activities during the school year begin with Circle Time, where we read a story together, sing a song or clap to the beat of our favorite nursery rhymes. We practice letter formation and then learn about a new activity or two from the Montessori room. Children who are ready for independent reading and writing have a small group lesson with a certified reading teacher.
All students are free to self-select activities from the areas of: literacy, math, sensorial awareness, practical life, cooking, nature, and free play. Children also have the choice of working alone, with a partner, or in a group. The teacher leads mini-lessons for smaller groups of children who demonstrate readiness for a new math or literacy concept. If time and weather permit, we go outside for playtime or a nature walk.
Lessons are planned in advance, but they are easily adapted as student interest dictates. Welcome to the fun and excitement of a not-so-typical class day at the Sibley Learning Center! If you are interested in learning more about our two-day per week program for children ages 2.5 – 5 years of age, please use the Contact Us page to schedule a phone interview and/or visit.
