Armstrong’s Summer School provides students entering Grades 2nd through 7th daily instruction in math and language arts remediation in addition to strength-based classes such as art, music, and dance. In small group language and math classes, teachers foster a supportive learning community that focuses on review and reinforcement of academic skills. Our program uses the same curricula and teaching methods that we employ during the regular school year. All classes are multi-sensory, and allow students the opportunity to gain confidence in a supportive and rigorous learning environment. Families have the opportunity to attend one parent-teacher conference at the end of the session.
Main components of the Morning Academic Program:• Community-building class meetings and assemblies
• Small group language arts remediation with particular emphasis on spelling and decoding skills
• Small group math instruction
• One strength-based class (such as Art, Dance, Music, Stop-Motion Animation, and Cognitive Development)
Academics OverviewSmall Group Language Classes:
In the Grades 2 and 3, language arts classes follow Fundations and Wilson Reading System. Both programs are phonological/phonemic awareness, phonics, and spelling programs and it serve as an intervention program to help reduce reading and spelling failure.
Language arts classes in Grades 4-6 follow the Just Words and Wilson Reading System. Just Words is a highly explicit, multisensory decoding and spelling program for students in grades 4–12. It encompasses a sophisticated study of word structure with explicit teaching of “how English works” for both decoding and spelling automaticity.
In the 7th grade, language arts classes follow the Language! Program by Voyager Sopris Learning. Language! integrates reading, writing, spelling, vocabulary, grammar, foundational skills, and spoken English.
Small Group Math Classes:
The small group math classes in the lower grades focus on review and strengthening of concepts, such as number sense, basic place value, addition and subtraction, and time and money. In the upper elementary grades, teacher focus on advanced place value, multiplication and division concepts, and fractions. Math in middle school focuses on fractions and decimals, numerical operations, and number theory. Math teachers use multisensory strategies and methodologies to support students’ deep understanding of math.
