The Grade 1 & 2 summer school program is designed to provide students with a balanced Literacy Framework that will help build reading, writing, listening and oral language skills. Children will develop a lifelong love of learning, improving their ability to express individual thoughts through independent reading workshops and individual writing workshops.
Essential skills that will be covered include:
• The continual development of the overall literacy skills of listening, speaking, reading and writing.
• Building a rich and descriptive vocabulary to retell, analyze, identify, discuss and reflect on their studies.
• A study of the main elements of storytelling that include an understanding of plot, setting, character and solutions.
All Grade 1 & 2 activities will include singing, painting, and choral reading, Reader’s Theater, Reader’s Workshop and Writer’s Workshop on their (theme) studies.
