Summer Learning Curriculum for Current K-4 Students

We are very excited to be using a fun and inventive program again this year for summer learning. Students will focus on STEM learning using the Camp Invention curriculum. Students will gain confidence and perseverance, build their STEM skills and improve their reading skills through collaborative, creative, problem-solving activities.. 

Alongside the Camp Invention STEM learning curriculum, students will have daily time to grow as readers and mathematicians throughout the summer. Students will learn math concepts throughout the summer with a focus on rich math discussions and representing their thinking and reasoning. Students will engage in fluency routines, problem-solving, and daily lessons in the Zearn Math Missions. The targeted Zearn Missions will cover key math concepts that will set students up for success in accelerating their learning over the summer. English Language support will be provided within the ACPS summer learning program.

To support literacy growth, teachers will immerse students in interactive read-alouds and hands-on phonics skills instruction with Really Great Reading’s summer curriculum. Summer libraries will engage students in reading and discussing high-interest texts with their friends. Students will have rich opportunities to read, think, and talk about books all summer long!
