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.
Recreation and STEAM Adventure AFTERNOONS
The spirit of adventure and exploration moves from the classroom to the field with AIM's summer afternoon program for children entering Grades 1-5. Whether playing a game on AIM's turf field, creating a Lego boat in the Maker Space and seeing if it floats, shooting hoops in the full-size ACC gymnasium, painting a giant mural, or playing improv games, children will find opportunities to discover, explore, create and perform. AIM's action-packed afternoons include science, arts, sports and games, and special events on Fridays!
Students must be enrolled in the morning enrichment program to participate in Adventure Afternoons.
