Summer is an ideal time to nurture the joys of reading and writing in your child. Through books, readers enter new worlds, explore their interests, and fuel their imaginations. Through writing, young authors create their own worlds and discover their own voices. Strengthening literacy skills over the summer months builds learners’ confidence and interest in reading and writing and prepares learners for the challenges of the upcoming school year. New York state-certified literacy specialists carefully craft unique learning experiences based on the interests of the learners, ensuring that reading and writing remain fun and meaningful. Taking campus field trips to inspire writing, utilizing the computer labs, or visiting the Hofstra University Museum are just some of the ways that your child will tap into the rich resources of the University during this specialty program. Puppet shows, reader’s theater, and published poems or short stories are just a few examples of final writing projects children will produce. Whether you are looking to inspire and motivate your reluctant reader or writer or you are seeking enrichment for your bookworm or budding author, the summer literacy program at the Reading/Writing Learning Clinic offers something special for every child.
