HAMLIN ROBINSON SCHOOL WILL BE OFFERING A HALF-DAY 3.5 WEEK SLINGERLAND CAMP THIS SUMMER FOR STUDENTS ENTERING GRADES 1-8.
We believe all students are happiest when they feel successful. Students enjoy the Slingerland® program because they understand the instruction and gain confidence in their ability to learn. We regularly see the pride in their successes.
Our Summer Slingerland Program will run from Wednesday, July 7 - Friday, July 30. The $950 registration fee includes the entire 18 days.
Morning Slingerland camps are offered for all grades entering 1-8 from 9am - noon, and there are limited afternoon Slingerland camps for select grades from 1pm - 4pm.
During this 3.5 week class, students will learn and practice oral language skills, penmanship, sound-symbol correspondence, spelling, written expression, decoding, and reading comprehension strategies. The class is structured to include a recess. The time before recess is spent on writing, and later morning is spent on reading strategies. Class sizes are 12-13 students. Students will be placed in a class with peers who will all be entering the same grade in the fall. Classes are offered for students entering Grades 1-8. Due to the nature of our safety protocols, we will only be offering half-day options this year. Full day camps will not be available.
WHO WOULD BENEFIT FROM THE SUMMER SLINGERLAND® PROGRAM?
- Students possessing average to superior intelligence, but are not achieving in the language skills such as reading, spelling, penmanship, oral and/or written expression.
- Students with language-based learning differences
- Students who have a pattern of language difficulties in their family
- Students showing weakness in the auditory and/or visual modalities, which interfere with understanding and using language
- Students with kinesthetic motor modality weakness that interferes with recall of the sequence of movement involved in spoken language or in letter formation for penmanship
Our program is designed to support students in reading and writing within a classroom-based model. We do not have the resources or specifically tailored program to support students who require 1:1 support, have difficulty managing within a classroom setting of students, or who would otherwise be impacted in their ability to exhibit appropriate behaviors in a structured situation.
