Our Camps Will Be Underway Soon!
Summer Art Click
Do you enjoy taking pictures or even just being on technology all the time? This camp may be for you. Boost your creativity and tech skills with this fun art camp. You will learn photography tricks, tips, digital photo editing techniques, and digital art programs. What you learn in this camp could lead to taking family portraits, senior or prom pictures, creating logo designs or digital illustrations, all of which could turn into an art career one day.
Students in the Summer Art Click will be added to an Art Click Haiku Page. Each week, you will be given a different Photography or Digital Art challenge via easy to follow, step by step demonstration videos. Students who sign up for Art Click will need to have access to the internet as well as to some form of digital camera (a cell phone or tablet camera will work). You will upload your artwork files to Haiku where you will receive peer and teacher feedback.

Whose Camp Is It Anyway? (Drama Camp)
Building Number Sense in the Primary Grades: Can We Build It? Yes We Can!
Number sense is important because it encourages students to think flexibly and promotes confidence with numbers. Students who lack a strong number sense have trouble developing the foundation needed for simple arithmetic, let alone complex mathematics. Number sense develops gradually , over time, as a result of exploration of numbers, visualizing numbers in a variety of settings and relating to numbers in different ways. In order to help fill the gap, I will use strategies such as modeling different methods of combining and decomposing numbers, having students calculate metally, discuss the different ways to compute numbers and sharing their thinking, math talks which will give students the opportunity to show there is more than one way to find the answer.
When: June 9th - July 2nd, Google Meet on - Tuesday , Wednesday, Thursday 10:30AM - 11:30AM
Ages: Rising K - 1st Grade
Facilitator: Mrs. Renee Bowman
Fun Building Reading Fluency
Fluency is important to gain strong comprehension skills. When a child becomes more fluent, they can then focus more on the story. Fluency helps a child build a bridge between automatically recognizing the words they read and understand the meaning of the text they read.
Facilitator: Mrs. April Payne
When: Google Meet on - Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday
Dates: June 8th - July 3rd - 10AM or 6PM
Ages: Rising 1st - 2nd Grade
Fun with Math: Standard Algorithm
In second grade we teach addition and subtraction to students mostly using different strategies such as base ten blocks, number lines, and place value. Students do not work with the standard algorithm until the fourth quarter of school. Due to COVID-19 this was not taught sufficiently enough for our 2nd graders going into 3rd grade. I feel that this gap will affect our students starting 3rd grade. Also, any 3rd grader that still needs this concept would benefit from this Opt-In opportunity.
Facilitator: Mrs. Paula Sigmon
When: Google Meet on - Monday, Wednesday, Friday
Dates: June 8th - July 3rd - 1:00PM

Fun with Multiplication/Division, Fraction Work, Force and Motion, and Ecosystems
In fifth grade we are required to teach multiplication and division. Students struggle with these basic computations. I want to help them understand the process and become more successful with solving these basic problems. Fractions is also a difficult concept for students to understand. I want to work on all computations with fractions so that students will have a better grasp on it for sixth grade. Force and motion was a standard that we did not get to do an efficient job at teaching, so I would like to review that standard. Finally, I would like to end with a fun week working on ecosystems. Students are required to retain an abundance of vocabulary, hopefully I can help them better grasp it.
Facilitator: Mrs. Amy Clement

Building Reading Skills with HillRap
The HillRAP program practices phonological awareness, phonics, fluency, vocabulary, and comprehension skills. HillRAP starts with basic skills (letter names and sounds, rhyming words, decoding, etc.) and progresses. The program is designed for four students at a time. However, while four students are working at the same time, the skills are individualized for each student. Therefore, students progress at their own pace. This allows for students of different levels to be in the same group. Ideally, HillRAP should be used for 45 minutes daily.
