for rising 4th, 5th and 6th graders
Comprehension Capers & Think Tank are small group learning camps for rising 4th, 5th and 6th graders. The first week of Comprehension Capers is designed to develop and strengthen strategies to improve comprehension with an emphasis on mysteries. Activities will include a mystery novel study, mini-mysteries, clue hunts and reading games. As students review comprehension skills, they will become super-sleuths as they solve mysteries and focus on the importance of answering the who, what, when, where, why, and how of comprehension. Daily mini-mysteries and hunts will aide students in following directions and applying comprehension strategies.
The second week of Think Tank is designed to develop and enhance problem-solving skills, basic math concepts, and logical thinking through fun-filled activities and cooperative games. Students will learn strategies and mental processing while also developing communication and language skills. In using a variety of games as the basic curriculum, the students will be able to have fun while working on critical thinking skills and learning problem-solving strategies. Camper/staff ratio is 8:1.
