Launch into Learning and Elementary Enrichment Mornings
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.
Our Launch into Learning Program for children entering 1st Grade provides young students with opportunities to learn and practice essential reading, writing and math skills for three full hours each day. Daily instruction includes 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. Campers receive three full hours of academic instruction each morning.
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 in our black box theater, children will find opportunities to discover, explore, create and perform. AIM's action-packed afternoons include science, arts, sports and games, not to mention everyone's favorite: WATER DAY FRIDAYS.
Children must be enrolled in the morning enrichment programs to participate in Adventure Afternoons.
