Reading Adventures to review and enhance reading skills while enjoying books and activities about dinosaurs, cowboys, astronauts, pirates, and royalty. We will read a number of books during the week and reinforce skills learned during the year. Each day will be a new and interesting adventure; panning for gold or digging for dinosaurs!

Creative Computer Adventures for dynamic and interesting ways to develop original writings. Students will work on original compositions and employ computer applications to publish their work. During these sessions, students will spend 1/2 of their time on either entry level keyboarding or, if an accomplished keyboarder, will learn different computer applications such as excel, word processing, etc. This is for students in grades 4-8.
