Are you looking for a Brooklyn half-day special summer learning experience for your child, a rising 3rd-5th grader,  that combines both learning and fun?

Join Themba Tutors LLC for a literacy experience that will foster children’s eagerness to learn as well as prepare them for the upcoming school year!

 

Students will engage in theme-based multisensory reading and writing hands-on activities. Each theme will use multimedia with new topics offered every two weeks. Summer themes include Smash Movies, Game Show Champions, Time Machine Travelers, Video Games, and Sports Fanatics!

Daily hands-on activities will address improving reading comprehension, writing, executive functioning,  reading fluency and phonics skills. Days will be enhanced with movement, crafts, visual arts, and mindfulness activities, and math games. Teachers will engineer lessons geared toward student interests and abilities.

Students will:

  • investigate and create space rockets
  • write and host original game shows
  • explore and examine video games
  • research and write stories about sports figures and events
  • watch and discuss movie clips and compare and contrast characters and scenes
  • travel back in time and create their ideal futuristic world
  • and much more!

Your child will have an almost 3:1 ratio teacher/student ratio. Each classroom will have two experienced and certified NYC Department of Education teachers (at least one will be an Orton Gillingham teacher licensed in Special Education) and the third professional will be a teacher assistant. They will work with students to provide instruction individually and in small groups.
