THIS SUMMER

Summer is the key opportunity to develop reading, writing and study skills for the upcoming school year.

In our fun summer program, your son or daughter will double reading speed and become a stronger reader and a more skilled, confident writer.

Middle school is full of academic challenges. Students have longer, more complex reading and writing assignments and must keep track of an increased workload. Students who read too slowly or don’t have the reading and study skills they need can fall behind.

Entering 6th-8th Graders Who Sharpen Skills During The Summer Have A Real Advantage.

Students who improve reading speed, comprehension, and writing skills over the summer start the school year with tools to take control of their work. They understand and complete all of their assignments more quickly and with greater confidence.

“HOW CAN I MAKE SURE THAT MY MIDDLE SCHOOLER…”

“Reads fast enough to keep up with assignments?”

“Understands and remembers what he or she reads?”

“Studies effectively and gets better grades?”

“Reads regularly during the summer?”

“Is successful as a writer?”

“Is ready for the first day of school?”

BUILD COMPREHENSION

Your middle schooler will build comprehension skills in fiction through reading an excellent novel in class and at home.

Reading a substantial novel with good comprehension will have big payoffs in school performance.

READ & STUDY TEXTBOOKS

Students learn the most effective way to read and study textbooks and other nonfiction. Your son or daughter will learn how information is organized in middle-school textbooks, how to identify main ideas and supporting details, and how to take effective notes. Through in-class and online instruction, students build these skills and develop confidence and a greater sense of control over school assignments.

BECOME A STRONGER WRITER

Students learn how to write clear, well-crafted sentences and well-organized paragraphs through instruction in-class and at-home. They also learn to recognize and avoid common errors that often trip up middle-school writers. Your son or daughter will come away feeling more confident and prepared to succeed with writing.

ENJOY READING MORE

During this program, students read and discuss a classic novel.
