Summer Camp ’17

Math, ELA, & STEM

Grades 3-8

07/03 – 08/03

Mon – Thurs: 10:30am – 4:30pm

Prevent Summer Brain Drain!

Schedule

5-week summer camp

This summer camp will take place Mondays through Thursdays for a total of 114 hours.

Small class sizes

Small class size

Camp classes will be capped at 5 students per instructor in order to maximize the delivery of educational material.

Schedule

Math & ELA

Because so much learning is lost over the summer, Mondays through Wednesdays will be dedicated to strengthening a student’s ELA & Math skills to prepare for the new school year. Students will focus on improving their writing and reading comprehension abilities, as well as mastering mathematical concepts. Test-taking tips and strategies are integrated along the way!

Microscope

Computer Science Workshops

In addition to Math & ELA, Thursdays will be devoted entirely to STEM workshops! Through computer building, coding, 3D printing, and biographical texts, students will dive deeper into the computer science world and into the life of a computer programmer and engineer, as well as become knowledgeable about leading innovators.

The most effective way to prepare for Back to School!

Math, Reading & Writing

Students entering grades 3-8 in September of 2017 will have the opportunity to close any educational gaps that may exist from the previous school year as well as begin coursework that lays ahead in the new academic year, three days a week, in our summer camp. Plus, students will learn to apply their ELA skills in our STEM workshops while they read and write about famous innovators in computer science! No other center integrates academic skill sets like we do!

Diagnostic Assessment

Diagnostic Assessment

Each student takes a comprehensive, research-based diagnostic assessment, which has been statistically validated for reliability and is aligned with Common Core and State Standards. With this assessment, we are able to pinpoint strengths and weaknesses down to the sub-skill level in both ELA and Math. Based on the results, we create their individualized learning plan.

ELA Sub-Skills

We can let you know how your child is doing in each of the following ELA sub-skills:

  1. Phonological Awareness/Phonics
  2. High-Frequency Words/Vocabulary
  3. Comprehension: Literature
  4. Comprehension: Informational Text
Math Sub-Skills

We can let you know how your child is doing in each of the following Math sub-skills:

  1. Number and Operations
  2. Algebra and Algebraic Thinking
  3. Measurement and Data
  4. Geometry
Inividualized Learning Plan

Individualized Learning plan

We create an individualized learning plan for teaching the concepts that are necessary for your child for the start of the new school year. This allows students who are in need of remediation, enhancement, or both to get to where they need to be and feel confident when going back to school in September! Summer is the perfect time to get ahead, not fall behind!

Reading & Writing

We understand that the Common Core demands that students learn to analyze fictional and non-fictional passages in ways beyond their years. Our Reading program provides students with insight on how to strategically read passages and answer multiple-choice questions.

Our writing program teaches students how to write coherent short- and extended-responses. Students learn to use an easily adaptable writing structure that can be used by writers of all levels.

We understand the high demands that have been imposed upon our students, and thus are motivated to help them overcome their obstacles when coming across such passages and writing assignments.

Mathematics

Our Math programs provide students with insight on how to strategically solve mathematical problems that they may find challenging when facing them alone.

Furthermore, we understand that the Common Core demands that students solve mathematical problems using different methods such as the “box method,” “window method,” “array,” etc.

This new way of learning poses a challenge to many students and parents alike. We understand the frustration, and thus are motivated to help students overcome their obstacles when coming across such problems.

STEM Thursdays

Coding...

Students apply learned skills in a fun & engaging way, through adventurous games and applications

Beginners begin to learn how to code character direction and make their own stories/games (e.g. walk, jump, kick, turn, repeat loops, spatial reasoning)

Intermediates build on foundational skills and learn to code more complex character movements and actions (e.g. repeat loops, determine strength of actions, build/mod obstacle courses, etc.)

Advanced students work on advanced coding activities, including Python and JavaScript activities (e.g. projectiles, text-based coding, run their own programs, program sounds, add animations, etc.)

Students will code their own adventure games, using visual programming blocks that teach the basics of programming in a fun, welcoming way. A future in coding starts here.

Students let their imaginations run wild during coding/game design & learning! Coding will be done on the computer as well as on paper. Quizzes will be administered to monitor progress.

Our students not only learn coding/game design, but also learn about basic terminology, the computer science field itself, and what career possibilities are out there! No other center offers this teaching component.

Our students are guided by instructors with extensive computer knowledge and/or specialized in computer sciences.

Kid-friendly environment, where each student has their own laptop! Students can collaborate and help each other out, but are ultimately strategically working out problems on their own!

Not only will students increase their Math and Reading & Writing skills to prepare for the new school year, but will also learn about what it takes to build a fully-functioning computer from the ground up. During Tip-Top Brain’s summer camp, students will work together in small groups and learn to put together a life-size computer, piece by piece. Guided by instructors who are computer experts, there is no doubt that your child will have an enriching summer!

Build while you learn!

Components your child will learn more about

COMPUTER CASE

The computer case contains the most important components of the computer: the motherboard, the processor, random access memory modules, the hard drive etc.

MOTHERBOARD

The motherboard is the part of the computer where such things as the processor, memory modules, expansion cards and external devices are attached. This means that the motherboard controls the functions of different components.

CPU

A central processing unit (CPU) is the electronic circuitry within a computer that carries out the instructions of a computer program by performing the basic arithmetic, logical, control and input/output (I/O) operations specified by the instructions.

VIDEO CARD

A central processing unit (CPU) is the electronic circuitry within a computer that carries out the instructions of a computer program by performing the basic arithmetic, logical, control and input/output (I/O) operations specified by the instructions.

RAM

The RAM (Random Access Memory) is a memory storage that functions during computer use and is especially utilized by the processor.

HARD DRIVE

The hard drive is the permanent memory of the computer where saved files remain even when the computer is turned off. This is why the hard drive is used for saving files.

3-D Printing

3D-printing leads the way for young inventors to learn the principles of design, as well as help students think through how to enhance the way that humans interface with the world. Here at Tip-Top Brain, we always strive to bring the latest technology into our classrooms and give our students the academic advantage!

Diagnostic Assessment

Revolutionizing Learning

Students will be transformed from passive consumers of goods to actively-engaged inventors who are in control of their own learning! And when this happens, it is a wonderful learning experience that keeps them yearning for more.

Diagnostic Assessment

Visualization in the Making

Since ideas can be created within a short period of time, students can see their work as real products. When students have access to 3D-printing, abstract concepts in science and math have the potential to be transformed into concrete (plastic) visuals.

Diagnostic Assessment

Limitless possibilities

Because students can apply the use of 3D-printing to everything one can imagine, the possibilities are endless! During our summer camp, students will have the opportunity to dive deep into a world of imagination and have their idea come to life!

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