Kempenfelt Bay School will offer a two-week academic consolidation program in both Mathematics and Language during the final two weeks in July, and a two-week academic primer program in both Mathematics and Language during the second and third week of August.
These offerings will be done remotely and open to:
Students are able to register for either program or both the consolidation and primer programs.
The programs will be instructed by KBS faculty members, Mr. Doyle and Ms. Whittle.
One hour per day on each of the listed days, plus additional work on the off days.
The consolidation program will instruct and provide critical thinking methods supporting the problem-solving process. This will begin with an understanding of operations language and move to problem-solving methods appropriate for the grade. Attention will be paid to Number Sense Routine, Problem-Solving questions aligned with a topic and includes solving strategies taught and applied, and time allowing extra algebra or coding practice.
The primer program will be structured as the consolidation program and instruct and provide critical thinking methods supporting the problem-solving process at the next successive grade level for the student.
One hour per day plus additional work on the off days.
The consolidation program will instruct and provide critical thinking methods supporting the writing process. Through this 5 day program spread over two weeks, students will identify various writing styles and then choose a genre they would like to further develop. Throughout the program, students will take the knowledge that they already have and from lessons taught to write, edit & revise, and then publish a finished piece of writing.
The primer program will look at a snapshot of what your child’s year to come will be like. Throughout the five-day program spread over two weeks, the students will learn what the expectations are in their next year, as well as take those new expectations and show their understanding through writing exercises, which will produce a final piece of writing demonstrating their learning through the program. By the end of this primer program, the students will have a base of knowledge to be successful in the year to come.
With respect to timing, we have three one-hour slots that will run in the mornings of the designated days. We will fill the earliest slots first to a maximum of five participants and then move to the next time slot once the first is full. The first will run from 9 am - 10 am with the next two following in sequence.
