At Smarter Summers Elementary, our goal is not to take away from the joys of summer, but to provide balance.
We want our students to return to the classroom with confidence, feeling excited to show off all that they’ve learned, and eager to learn even more! Our carefully planned half-day program for students entering Grades 1 - 2 is designed not only to prevent learning loss, but to actually keep kids moving forward with the important skills that will help them excel in school. We target foundational reading, writing, and math skills using research-based programs within the context of a fun, game-based learning experience.
Multi-sensory phonics instruction to build sound-symbol knowledge
reading + writing
Read aloud, small group reading, and independent writing to encourage a love of stories
Math games to build fact knowledge and number sense
