At the Craig School Summer Academy, the academic needs of the students are determined, and then an educational program is prescribed for each child. The focal point of a student’s instruction can range from learning more decoding skills, reinforcing skills learned during the school year, or preparing students for High School.
Monday May 4, Governor Phil Murphy announced that schools in New Jersey would be closed until at least June 30th, therefore our academic summer program will be online. The dates of the program remain the same Monday July 6th through Thursday July 30th. The times will run from 8:50 to 12:10. There will be four classes, 45 minutes in length with 5-minute breaks in between to prepare for the next log in. The classes are below.
The Reading programs are rooted in the multisensory principles of instruction. The teaching is diagnostic, prescriptive, explicit and cumulative. The students are taught concepts in a structured, sequential manner that appeals to their logic. Orton-Gillingham Project Read and Lindamood Bell Programs are some of the multisensory reading programs that will be utilized in summer school.
The program will be using a combination of multimedia lessons and multisensory math activities that are designed to build a solid math foundation. Students will reinforce previously learned concepts to ensure they don’t forget the critical skills that they have already learned during the school year. Reference sheets will be provided.
The writing program will incorporate Project Read Written Expression for sentence structure and paragraph writing. This strategy-based instruction will infuse assistive technology into the writing process. Students will learn to use Mindomo as a graphic organizer to thoughtfully arrange their thoughts and ideas. Google Chrome extensions such as Read and Write and Grammarly will also be utilized.
The technology/computer class offers a collection of technology projects and activities which will also reinforce the assistive technology programs used in the Language Arts classes. Lessons are geared toward the grade level of the student.
*Individual progress reports will be provided the last day of summer program for Reading, LA and Math.
