While our focus on joyful literacy experiences stays the same, we’re adding a few new components to the mix this summer.
1) HANDWRITING! Our upper graders will have a daily cursive practice session, and our youngers will practice their printing skills using tactile methods, such as playdo and sand trays.
2) We’ve added several non-fiction themed weeks to increase the exposure to expository texts. We want to grow readers who are comfortable in multiple genres, and also better engage kiddos whose preference leans towards the factual. There will still be plenty of time for stories and creativity!
Because reading camp comes across a lot like broccoli camp! At CFB, our primary focus is reading because we believe that a solid foundation in reading gives kids a leg up in anything they want to accomplish, enjoy, or become in life. We approach reading in a way that feels a lot like creative play. By weaving literacy into STEAM based activities, campers grow as readers through authentic engagement with text. (And we continue to dream of a world where reading camp comes across like Disney World!) More FAQ's
