Are your kids moping around the house because it’s too hot to go outside? Or spending more time in front of the TV or video games than you would like? Summer is a great time to experience fun and adventure at Adams Traditional Summer Camp! Days at summer camp are filled with fun, adventure, learning, and friendship for 3 year old preschool students up to eighth-graders.
Story time and reading are part of the fun adventure. Did you know that reading is one of the most vital components of children’s development? A recent study reveals that preschool children who read at least five books a day enter kindergarten having heard about 1.4 million more words than kids who did not read daily. Adams Traditional Beginnings understands the significance of reading to help children in other aspects of their learning, so we include a reading focus to encourage a love of reading for every student.
At Adams Traditional Summer Camp, we get our students excited about reading, but it is just one of the fun, educational components of camp. Our preschool and kindergarten students enjoy games, centers, music and movement, arts and crafts, circle time and stories, and phonogram and math review. We can’t wait to get your child excited about learning! We hope to see them at Adams Traditional Summer Camp.
More About Reading – Did You Know There is a Million Word Gap?
Jessica Logan, a member of Ohio State’s Crane Center for Early Childhood Research and Policy, shares her conclusions from recent studies testing the importance of reading every day with children. The “million word gap” is key in explaining differences in vocabulary and reading development for children who read daily and children who do not. Kids who hear more vocabulary words by reading every day will be more prepared when seeing these words in print once starting school. Children who have listened to over 1 million words from reading approximately 5 books a day are more likely to pick up on reading skills more quickly and easily. Logan says, “The word gap of more than 1 million words between children raised in a literacy-rich environment and those who were never read to is striking.” She encourages parents to close this gap and make reading a top priority in the home. Even reading one book a day allows a child to hear almost 300,000 more words than children who do not read books every day.
