Our camp curriculum is designed to be hands-on, interactive, play-based and fun! You can expect your child to be engaged in early literacy activities involving songs, sensory exploration, creative arts, STEM, children’s books, storytelling, dramatic play, and fine and gross motor skills.
Each day begins with the students ‘signing in’ to practice writing their name. This is followed by table activities aimed at developing the small muscles necessary for writing. At morning circle, we practice sounds and letters through interactive songs, games, stories, and rhymes. At snack time our program exposes campers to our favorite children’s books as they learn about concepts of print. During recess, children are free to run around the playground, strengthening the large muscle groups that support the smaller ones involved in writing! We end the day with small group learning and a creative book-based art project that gets children excited about books, reading, and learning!
Our early literacy camp program values YOU and your role in your child’s literacy development. Parents will receive a brief daily report of the activities and skills learned, as well as ways to strengthen these same skills at home.
**The Pre-K literacy camp curriculum, philosophy, and programming were originally designed by Dr. Marissa Kiepert Truong of “A First Foundation.” Beginning in 2019, Dr. Truong will no longer direct the PreK classes and is not affiliated Little Ones for Literacy.
