Get “Kindergarten-Ready” with LRC

Camp READY! dates are set for Summer 2018, and camps are kicking off soon.
 

 
If you have a rising or repeating kindergartner, ensure they’re prepared for school and academic success by enrolling them in the Learning Resource Center’s annual kindergarten-readiness program. On average, Camp READY! students have shown growth of four to seven months from pre- to post-assessment in just four weeks. Through hands-on, experiential learning centers lead by qualified teachers, students will experience learning that is fun!
 
With art, music and movement, cooking, and reading-readiness centers, Camp READY! builds pre-reading skills while also providing a safety net to allow children more time to continue motor, social and cognitive development. Teachers will engage students in themed, rich language-laden lessons, while also providing learning opportunities for parent involvement at camp and at home.
 
The program is designed for students entering or repeating kindergarten in August 2018.
 
This year, Camp READY! is scheduled to take place at nine campsites throughout Polk County. Each camp will last a total of four weeks. Dates and times vary by location. (Please see below)
 
The cost of camp is $25 for the entire month and includes a shirt.
 
Camp will wrap up with a parent program on the final day, where parents will be invited to watch their child in a performance showcasing what they learned at camp.

LRC Offers a Summer Kaleidoscope of Learning

A look at LRC’s 2015 Summer

 
Every June brings an incredible array of educational adventures to the always-open doors of LRC. Some are long-time traditional classes, and others are brand-new opportunities to meet the academic needs of the community. Summer 2015, too, is appropriately unique in its offerings.
 
Here is an overview:
 

Nine Camp READY!’s

Campers aged 5-6 years old participate in LRC’s award-winning month-long activity-based program designed to increase their success in Kindergarten. Sites for 2015 are Frostproof, Lake Wales, Winter Haven, Haines City, Poinciana, Bartow, Ft. Meade, North Lakeland, and South Lakeland.
 

Super Summer Success  

Elementary school students perfected their reading and math skills in engaging projects and participatory activities. The classes were hosted at Highland City Elementary School for four weeks.  Parents were invited to celebrate completed projects and learning gains.
 

Study Habits for Highly Successful Students

Middle School and High School students identified and practiced strategies to improve organization and time management skills, test-taking techniques, critical thinking, listening and focusing tips, and effective communication in a week-long class at LRC Offices.
 

ACT, SAT, GRE, and TOEFL Test Prep

LRC is offering test preparation to students with myriad needs this summer. Students hoping to secure a Bright Futures Scholarships or college acceptance are enrolled in classes at the LRC Center. Students studying with the Galindo Tennis Academy are working with English vocabulary and grammar in classes held on Florida Southern College campus.
 

Community-based Education

Two new initiatives through Heartland for Children take LRC teachers to Auburndale and Sebring. IRACE, an initiative to involve underserved youth, has partnered with LRC to offer intensive math tutoring, study skills, and Florida Virtual School coaching.  Hansen House, a residential program in Highlands County, is the scene for one-to-one tutoring.
