SUMMER CAMP - Grades 1 to 2

Language Arts + Visual Arts + Dramatic Arts

Where books come to life!

Students will be immersed in a variety of books. The selection celebrates Canadian books, publishers, authors and illustrators. Through meaningful learning they will strengthen their Language Arts skills in the most creative way! 

Curriculum developed and taught by an Ontario Certified Teacher.

In the morning students will be guided through one book. They will develop skills in understanding the authors message, point of view, making connections, inferring, visualizing and much more.

In the afternoon students will experience creative hands-on learning projects that complement the book in the form of Visual Arts and Dramatic Arts.

At Apostrophe Kids Summer Camp, students will learn to:

• Develop a deeper understanding of the content of a selected book

• Express understanding of texts in various forms ex. short responses, pictures, mind maps, etc.

• Organize their thinking for written and oral work

• Build public speaking confidence through Dramatic Arts performances

• Express themselves through a variety of Visual Arts projects

Each day will be structured, but all experiences will be open-ended to allow for individual exploration and discovery!

Students will need to bring their own lunch, snacks, water bottle and CREATIVITY.

"The test of a good teacher is not how many questions he can ask his pupils that they will answer readily, but how many questions he inspires them to ask him which he finds it hard to answer."
