NYS certified teacher where children practice reading aloud, work on cadence, pace, vocabulary-building and comprehension. Children discuss the reading each week, practice journal writing and reflective questions. In this current session we are running in the schools, the last class will end with a very special author Skype in which children can engage directly with the author to learn about what inspired them to write their book and question the author directly.
- Art Safari – children spend a full week reading about a new artist each day and then working on an art project inspired by that particular artisan’s work.
- Cupcake Diaries – a full week camp in which children formed reading circles each day to complete reading, creating cupcake journals and writing entries that tied in with their reading and discussions and ended each day with a cupcake decorations lesson by a pastry artist. The children learned a new cupcake recipe each day, worked on frosting/decorating skills and then enjoyed their work!
- Let’s Go To Spain – a full day camp reading about Spanish culture, learning new vocabulary, enjoying Spanish treat and engaging in a role-playing skit.
