Every summer, we provide students with academic support in order to help them avoid the Summer Slide. This summer, students will also be facing a potential “COVID Slide,” due to the amount of time they have been away from traditional school. The impact of COVID Slide and Summer Slide together could be a recipe for failure for many students.
Fortunately, it doesn’t have to be. While we all need time outside to exercise our bodies and rest our minds, staying on top of skills over the summer months can be accomplished.
Staying Engaged this Summer
RITES has devised bite-sized options to keep students learning and engaged over the summer. Our teachers are having great success, combining tool kits mailed home to our students with interactive online work. The kits include hands-on activities teachers use with their students while working with them online in real time. Together, they are making learning tangible and helping students retain information.
This summer, students of all ages can opt to continue their education in any subject through individual online tutoring. This allows goals to be personalized to each student’s learning style and needs.
Starting July 13th
Be part of small book clubs of four students, grouped by age and reading level, that meet twice a week to read books together, improving reading and vocabulary skills.
Small group writing workshops of four students, grouped by age that meet twice a week, are focused on creativity, fun, and, most importantly, building and sharpening writing skills.
For High School students, the summer is the perfect time to prepare for the SAT or ACT, write their college essay, and improve their essay writing skills that are necessary for school success. We offer direct teaching for all of these important high school skills.
Reading and Math Skills for Younger Students
For those searching for something a little more intensive, we are offering Rocking Reading and Megahit Math classes for students entering grades 1-4 this fall. This group of no more than four students meets every morning with their teacher for 60- to 90-minute sessions. The class meets four days a week for four weeks to strengthen key reading and math skills.
The learning doesn’t need to stop. We change it up and break it down to combat the Summer Slide, COVID Slide, and online fatigue, while fostering better, deeper learning. Jump on this opportunity today to reserve your child’s spot in our multisensory, interactive, online summer learning options.
