What's Included

This SJND Language Arts Enrichment Center is designed to meet the needs of all K-8 students. Studies show that some students fall behind during the summer. In this class young learners (K-2) will work on beginning phonics and reading-readiness skills, learn basic site words, build reading comprehension skills and develop a love for books and reading. Older students (3-5) will learn to read independently, study age appropriate sight words, build comprehension skills, and work directly with interactive graphic organizers to gain the writing skills. Advanced elementary students (6-8) will work on developing Common Core ELA skills including summarizing primary texts, citing textual evidence, incorporating narrative elements effectively into arguments and informative/explanatory texts, and other language acquisition skills such as understanding Greek and Latin roots that shape English. This clinic will meet weekly on Monday and Wednesday nights from 4pm-6pm during a six-week period (10 classes). Students are encouraged to attend all the sessions but we understand that not all students can make each session. Snack is provided. Each class is limited to 20 students, with a 5:1 student-teacher ratio.
