In each two-hour session, students in grades 3–6 will improve and enrich their language arts abilities. During the five-week summer sessions, students will read a chapter book or novel to work on oral fluency, vocabulary, story structure, and the elements of literature. These skills will be reinforced with projects, games, and activities that are fun as well as skill building. In addition, students will improve and enrich their writing abilities through free and structured writing. This class caps at eight students. Class meets in Thompson 106.
Students in grades 3–4 (section 1) will focus on improvement in sentence completion, capitalization, punctuation, and the writing of a complete paragraph.
Students in grades 5–6 (section 2) will focus on the styles of writing useful in self expression, persuasion, narration, direction and description will be some of the styles practiced.
Both programs will work on writing in order to prepare and reinforce skills needed for success on standardized tests. Projects, games, and activities directed toward writing skill building will reinforce learning and bring excitement to the class.
