Camps for the Week of August 1st - 4th
Gr K - 3
History • Reading • Science
Dinosaurs: clearly the coolest life forms in the history of earth. How come they existed in so many different sizes and shapes? What was their environment like, and how did they evolve and adapt so well to the climate? Is it true that birds evolved from dinosaurs (keep it a secret—they did.) After all that successful adaptation, why did dinosaurs suddenly die out? Just what exactly do archaeologists do anyway, and how do they do it? Is all that digging really any fun? The answers to all of these questions and more will be covered in this fun class. Don’t forget to bring your shovels and pith helmets!
Making Words Fun: Poetry
Gr 4 - 11
Academics • Creative Writing • Reading
Have you ever read limericks by Ogden Nash, or stories by Shel Silverstein and Doctor Seuss? Do Madlibs and puns make you laugh? Who doesn't like that stuff! How do they make words so interesting? Don’t you wish you could write out some of the cool ideas running through your head that you just can’t seem to get out the way you want? Well, this class is for you! Poetry comes in many forms and is the perfect way to help you express your thoughts in ways you never dreamed possible. You will discover just how much fun it is to find a particular word or rhyme to complete your thoughts; kind of like a scavenger hunt in the library. Maybe you already enjoy reading and coming up with stories and songs about things you like. In this class, you will gain the tools to take your writing skills to higher levels! Let the fun begin!
Here are some facts:
- Most students lose about two months of what they learned in math over the summer months.
- Low-income students lose more than two months in reading achievement.
- Parents consistently say that summer is the most difficult time to ensure that their children have productive things to do.
- Our children’s’ need to learn does not end in May when the school doors close. They need to stay active and engaged, which also helps them stay on track academically when they return to school in August.
