Gain Success in Reading at Camp Rockin’ READ!

The Learning Resource Center has added a new elementary program to its summer lineup.


Camp Rockin’ READ! is designed to help students who have completed grades 1, 2 or 3 enhance their reading, writing and spelling skills using the Orton-Gillingham multi-sensory approach as well as the Barton Reading & Spelling System.
 

The Orton-Gillingham Approach:

 
The Orton-Gillingham Approach is multisensory, language-based, structured, sequential, cumulative, cognitive, flexible and individualized instruction.
 
Multisensory focuses on visual, auditory and kinesthetic learning, engaging sight, sound, touch and motion within the same lesson.
 

 
The Barton Reading & Spelling System uses the Orton-Gillingham Approach and also focuses on multisensory learning, aiding students in making connections between sounds and words.
 
Students who attend Camp Rockin’ READ! will:
 

  • Enjoy hands-on activities to improve reading, writing and spelling skills
  • Engage all the senses in the learning process– visual, auditory, and kinesthetic
  • Experience increased independence, success, self-esteem, and confidence in the classroom
  • Effectively learn to decode words independently using the Barton Reading & Spelling System
  • Start the school year with increased skills

 
Camp will begin Monday, June 25, 2018 at the Learning Resource Center in Lakeland (1628 S. Florida Ave.) and continue for three weeks, ending on Friday, July 13, 2018. The program will take place Monday through Friday from 8:30-11:30 a.m. during that period. There will be no class on Wednesday, July 4, 2018.
 
The cost of camp is $420. LRC does offer a sliding fee scale based on the family’s gross annual income, so the fee may vary.
 
The camp size is small, so be sure to enroll your child today. You may register students online by clicking Camp Rockin’ READ!, in person at LRC or by phone at 863-688-9477.

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.

Camp READY! Staff is Prepped and Ready to Teach!

Seventy enthusiastic participants who will serve Camp READY! campers congregated at two different sites on Saturday, May 21. Come June and July, these folks will be in positions of camp site director, instructor, counselor or support staff. Camp READY! is LRC’s signature program for beginning or struggling kindergartners geared towards preparing them for success in the classroom.
 
During the two and a half hour training, attendees met with their camp colleagues to get acquainted and to assign roles for the upcoming four-week sessions at ten different sites across Polk County. Breakout workshops provided time and attention for practice with the curriculum for each site’s learning centers—Readiness, Cooking, Movement, and Art. This year will be the inaugural year for incorporation of Nemours’ Bright Start Program, an acclaimed pre-kindergarten language development initiative from the Nemours’ Pediatric Hospitals.
