What is Early Childhood Literacy Camp All About?
 
At Foundations, we believe in laying a strong foundation for literacy and social-emotional success, while also growing a love of learning.  Learning in early childhood should be an adventure! Children learn through rich experiences, discovery and play.  This educational camp will address all developmental domains through fun literature-based themes and hands-on learning experiences, with an emphasis on reading readiness skills and social-emotional awareness.  
Explicit, systematic, research-based instruction is unique to this program, and will be provided in the areas of alphabet knowledge, phonological and phonemic awareness, handwriting and sound/symbol relationships.  The use of emergent readers will facilitate the development of print awareness and provide early exposure to high frequency words.  Children who are ready to move beyond basic letter-sound relationships, will receive further decoding instruction based on his/her level of readiness. 
 
Learners will further be exposed to a variety of rich children's literature and modeled writing and dictation experiences, as instructors lead discussion and activities that target oral and written language development, as well as critical thinking skills.  Children will further be exposed to STEM concepts/activities in creative and meaningful ways. 
 
This camp is targeting children entering kindergarten, taking into consideration developmental readiness.  
Prior to camp, parents of registered students will be asked to complete an informal reading readiness inventory.  This information will facilitate the development of individualized literacy instruction for your child.
