Explore Your World - Camp 2020! (For Rising 1st-5th Graders)
AIM's highly qualified staff provides a dynamic learning experience integrating research-based teaching methods with fun and creative activities designed to increase the acquisition and development of reading and math skills and decrease summer learning loss.
This summer, each grade will explore a different corner of the globe! Students will focus their reading, writing and learning on the people, places and animals of their region. By the end of the program, each child will become an expert in their subject and will astound you with their knowledge.
Online Program Details:
We will hold live, virtual classes in all four subject areas: Reading, Language Arts, Math, and Interactive Humanities. Specific schedules and class times will be shared closer to the start of the program, but all classes will occur between 9:00 am-12:30 pm.
Online classes are taught by AIM's amazing, innovative Lower School teachers!
We are keeping our exciting Interactive Humanities theme of Explore Your World, with each grade focusing on a specific area of the globe.
Every summer student will receive an individual kit of “Camping Gear,” containing a selection of materials and supplies to be used for classes and hands-on projects during camp.
For our Rising 1st Graders: Given the young age and specific needs of our Rising 1st Grade students, we will be reaching out individually to our 1st Grade families to discuss our plans to develop an online program that meets the needs of our youngest students.

AIM's Summer Enrichment is Grounded in the Science of Reading
Our Launch into Learning Program for children entering 1st Grade includes instruction in literacy-based activities targeting skills in phonemic awareness, decoding, sight word recognition, fluency, vocabulary, comprehension, writing and math skills while learning about the world. For a better understanding of the benefits of early intervention, read Waiting Rarely Works: Late Bloomers Usually Just Wilt by American Federation of Teachers at Reading Rockets.
In our Elementary Enrichment Program for children entering Grades 2-5, small group reading and writing instruction utilizing elements of Fundations, Wilson Reading, RAVE-O, Read Naturally and other research-based programs are led by AIM staff. Multisensory math computation, fluency and word problems are covered. Our Interactive Humanities curriculum uses arts-based learning to enrich the study of history, science and world cultures.
