What to do with summer for our children is a dilemma that we all face. After working so hard nine to ten months of the year, don’t our kids deserve a break? Don’t we all deserve a break? However, the research proves that on average a student may lose about a month’s worth of learning during summer if no intentional education is pursued.
At Fortune Academy, we have worked hard to design a program to help our children retain their hard-won knowledge over the past school year, and still have plenty of time to chase their summer dreams. We are proud of the offerings in our Summer 2018 LEAP Program and invite you to register your child now!
So what is Summer LEAP?
LEAP was born from the research that showed that students can lose up to a month’s worth of learning when they are not educationally engaged. So we decided to take our proven and effective approach to learning, partnered with our qualified tutors and therapists, to provide an incredible opportunity for our students in the summer months.
How long is the program?
Student’s receive individualized education in 7, 50-minute sessions, tailored just for them. These 7 sessions take place in either June or July, whichever month you prefer. You could even sign up for both months and keep the learning going! Students will meet two days a week, either on a Monday/Wednesday or Tuesday/Thursday schedule.
how much does LEAP cost?
This includes one-on-one sessions with a qualified OG-trained tutor and your child. Each session will be taught in a structured, sequential, and cumulative multisensory approach to help your child develop their phonological awareness skills necessary for reading and spelling.
Your student will be assisted in developing their math skills utilizing manipulatives in a multisensory approach that allows them to progress from their concrete mathematical understanding to representational to the abstract.
OG WRITTEN EXPRESSION
Since sentence creation is a foundational part of the writing process, your student will benefit from direct, systematic instruction in sentence construction skills. From there, they will learn how to develop their thoughts in a structured and cumulative fashion to build a paragraph. For some, they will learn to build upon these skills to write a 5-paragraph essay.
OG STUDY SKILLS
Using a structured and step-by-step approach, your child will learn the art of note taking and test-taking skills toward specific test styles.
Students will spend time working with speech therapy staff to improve appropriate social interactions with peers in a variety of scenarios.
Students will spend time with physical therapy staff learning to move for fun using a variety of games and movement styles to assist with improved coordination and body awareness.
Students will spend time with occupational therapy staff working on handwriting skills. May include fine motor skills, sensory activities, and gross motor skills to assist effective learning of handwriting skills.
