  • 07/08 to 07/12  5 half days Monday-Friday 9:00am-12:00pm $250/camp Location: 16100 NW Cornell Road Suite 210 Room 7

    The camp is to make writing easy and enjoyable for children in grades K-2. The camp involves incorporating activities that are engaging, age-appropriate, and focused on building foundational writing skills. 

    Here are a few example strategies we employ at our camp to actively involve children in writing:
    • Use Fun Prompts: Provide interesting prompts that stimulate imagination and creativity. For example, "If I could go anywhere in the world, I would go to..." or "My favorite animal is..."
    • Start Small: Begin with simple writing tasks such as writing a sentence from simple to descriptive or a short paragrap. Gradually increase the complexity as they become more confident.
    • Provide Positive Feedback: Encourage children's efforts and celebrate their progress. Offer specific praise for their ideas, efforts, and improvements in writing.
    • Make it Fun: Turn writing into a game by playing writing-related activities like word bingo, storytelling games, or writing scavenger hunts.
    • Read Aloud: Read stories and books aloud to children to expose them to different writing styles, vocabulary, and sentence structures. This can inspire their own writing.
    • Offer Choices: Allow children to choose their writing topics or formats. Giving them autonomy increases motivation and engagement.

    By incorporating these strategies, we can help make writing enjoyable and easy for children in grades K-2, laying a strong foundation for their literacy development.

    MathCounts is a national middle school mathematics competition that builds problem-solving skills and fosters achievement through four levels of fun, in-person "bee" style contests. Some students love math. Other students fear math. MATHCOUNTS is the place for both. It provides engaging math programs to U.S. middle school students of all ability levels to build confidence and improve attitudes towards math and problem-solving. 

    The American Mathematics Competitions (AMC) 8 is a 25-question, 40-minute, multiple-choice examination in middle school mathematics designed to promote the development and enhancement of problem-solving skills. The contest is held in November every year and for students in grades 8 and below.

    We designed 2-week of summer camps for students to learn the common problem-solving strategies for both competitions and also working on the previous years of tests for practice.  The 2 camps will focus on different topics and use different practice materials. It's best that students can join both camps, but it's also ok to join one of them. 

    Prerequisites: Students have at least completed PreAlgebra; It's better if students have completed or learning Algebra I and Geometry.

    Java Programming Language is one of the most popular programming languages particularly for client–server web applications. Java is high-level, class-based, object-oriented programming language that is designed to have as few implementation dependencies as possible. It is a general-purpose programming language intended to let programmers write once, run anywhere, meaning that compiled Java code can run on all platforms that support Java without the need for recompilation. Java applications are typically
    compiled to bytecode that can run on any Java virtual machine regardless of the underlying computer architecture. 

    Fundamental of Java - AP Computer Science A Part 1:

    Topics to be covered:
    Unit 1: Primitive Types
    Unit 2: Using Objects
    Unit 3: Boolean Expressions and if Statements
    Unit 4: Iteration
    Unit 5: Writing Classes

     

    Note: Each class will follow a format: Computer science Concepts, Programming activity, Quiz.

    Literary reading skills are above basic reading skills (outline meaning) and key reading skills (summary scanning)  to the point where we are grasping complex texts in all their complexity during reading. It is reading between lines in order to discover levels of meaning and develop complex interpretations.

    In this class, students will:

    (1) Review Basic Reading (imagining, responding, skimming)

    (2) Learn Reflective Reading (selecting, scanning, tracking)

    (3) Learn Analytical Reading (Interpreting, analyzing)

    (4) Write a critical analysis style essay 

    (5) Build up vocabulary throughout reading

    (6) Form up their unique critical essay writing style with correct logical structure and grammar.


    In this one week camp, the instructor will lead students to read at least one book, plus shorter pieces or chapters from books in a variety of genres.  

    For essay writing, the first step of critical writing is to take notes on evidence, document quotes and paraphrases while reading. The purpose of  critical analysis is not merely to inform, but also to evaluate the worth, utility, excellence, distinction, truth, validity, beauty, or goodness of something from the books that students are reading. We will instruct students to write those notes down on a notebook.

    The second step of critical writing is to design a clear logical structure of an essay. Students need to design/plan their essay with clear logical flow before start writing critical essay.

    During the revising process, we will check the logical structure, information, interpretation, evaluation of the text, and eliminate grammar errors.

    Text Books (Free Rent from Sunshine Elite Education or student purchase)

    MathCounts is a national middle school mathematics competition that builds problem-solving skills and fosters achievement through four levels of fun, in-person "bee" style contests. Some students love math. Other students fear math. MATHCOUNTS is the place for both. It provides engaging math programs to U.S. middle school students of all ability levels to build confidence and improve attitudes towards math and problem-solving. 

    The American Mathematics Competitions (AMC) 8 is a 25-question, 40-minute, multiple-choice examination in middle school mathematics designed to promote the development and enhancement of problem-solving skills. The contest is held in November every year and for students in grades 8 and below.

    We designed 2-week of summer camps for students to learn the common problem-solving strategies for both competitions and also working on the previous years of tests for practice.  The 2 camps will focus on different topics and use different practice materials. It's best that students can join both camps, but it's also ok to join one of them. 

    Prerequisites: Students have at least completed PreAlgebra; It's better if students have completed or learning Algebra I and Geometry.
