Summer STEAM Camp

Grades K – 2

Academically and scientifically enriching

Tip-Top Brain’s Summer STEAM Camp 2018 will focus on the human body and the major organs.

Students will practice Math and ELA (reading and writing) skills on a daily basis, all while being immersed in hands-on projects and activities pertaining to the key organs that make up their very own bodies.

The most effective way to prepare for Back to School!

Starts: July 2nd
Ends: August 3rd

Fun in the sun!

Each day, students will eat lunch with their fellow campers and then head over to the nearby park (weather-permitting) for some fun in the sun! Otherwise, students will participate in various indoor activities of their choice. Students must bring own bagged lunch; water is provided.

Why make it a Tip-Top Brain Summer?

Tip-Top Brain offers the perfect balance between academics and fun!

Summer learning slide...

The long vacation doesn’t simply hit the “pause” button on reading, math and writing skills. In fact, it’s like hitting the “rewind” button! A non-academic summer can cause students at every grade level to digress 2-3 months in their academic skills, putting students behind before they even start the new school year!

Don't slide, climb!

Summer time is ideal for students of all ages to strengthen their academic skills. Tip-Top Brain’s summer camp provides the perfect balance between reinforcing academic skills and having lots of summer fun!

“Summers off are one of the most important, yet least acknowledged, causes of underachievement in our schools.”

(New York Times)

Discovering our bodies one organ at a time…

How will they learn?

Each week, students will explore a different organ system and be exposed to various texts (literature & informational) and mathematical concepts, building off of lessons prior and deepening their understanding of the real world.

Concepts taught throughout each week are student-centered and differentiated, and will be revisited to ensure learning as well as denote overall importance, and is aligned with the Common Core State Standards.

All learning will take place through various learning methods, including arts & crafts, play, pair-share, songs, books, free-write, technology, and guided instruction.

Balanced Literacy

Through songs, conversation, instruction of phonics, read aloud, and scaffolded independent reading, we foster an authentic sense of language, teaching syntax semantics through exposure.

Some topics that will be covered:

  • Phonics
  • Sight Words
  • Vocabulary
  • Setting
  • Character Conflicts
  • Problem-Solution
  • Sequencing
  • Main Idea
  • Theme/Lesson

Balanced Numeracy

Through manipulatives, play, technology, real world scenarios, open-ended problems, and guided instruction, where the focus is on the process and not on the answer, we nurture conceptual understanding, computational proficiency, and a genuine love for mathematics.

Some topics that will be covered:

  • Counting & Number Sense
  • Addition
  • Subtraction
  • Measurement (time, length, height, etc.)
  • Geometry
  • Mental math

Don’t let the Summer go to waste, get your child ahead NOW!

Crucial skill development

guided instruction

Guided instruction is small group instruction facilitated by the teacher for a short period of time meant to develop meaningful understanding of concepts.

Due to our small teacher to student ratio, your child’s entire camp experience will be learning through such instruction, ultimately maximizing enrichment.

play-based learning

Students in K-2 learn best through play, as it is in their nature to “play.” So why would you take this away? You don’t!

Learning through play is a term used in education and psychology to describe how a child can learn to make sense of the world around them. Through play children can develop social and cognitive skills, mature emotionally, and gain the self-confidence required to engage in new experiences and environments.

So let your child have fun this summer with their peers, while they learn and gain meaningful skills!

socioemotional skill development

Social-emotional development includes the child’s experience, expression, and management of emotions and the ability to establish positive and rewarding relationships with others (Cohen and others 2005).

Unfortunately, there is not enough time in a given school day for teachers to tackle socioemotional skill learning, and is often left out. However, it is critical that children learn to understand their emotions and feelings at a young age, as well as learn how to express themselves to others. Such skills get carried into adolescence as well as adulthood. Our campers will work on their socioemotional skill building from the very first to the very last day of camp!

fine motor skills

Fine motor skill activities are a great help when it comes to developing your child’s writing. Activities that focus on motor skill development, improve the muscles in the fingers and hands, strengthen handgrip, and develop wrist movement. By doing all of those things, your child will be better prepared to hold a pencil for long periods of time, and learn to write with strong and controlled muscles. These fine motor skills activities include art projects, science projects, and even games! Your kids are sure to have a blast with our arts & crafts and science experiments this summer, and will be developing important skills without even knowing it!

Student-peer relationship

Classroom relationships can help children develop the social skills necessary for school adjustment and long-term academic success, as they provide much-needed social and emotional support. Students who have good student-peer relationships at school are more, rather than less, likely to achieve at high levels.

student-teacher relationship

Fostering students’ relationships with teachers has important, positive and long-lasting implications for both a students’ academic and social development. Studies suggest they help kids adapt, learn, and achieve.

This summer, your child will learn how to make and keep meaningful relationships with teachers as well as peers, giving them the social confidence to move through the future school years that lay ahead. Our nurturing teachers are here to guide your child every step of the way!
