COMMUNICATION
SKILLS

Our programs give students many opportunities to develop their oral communication skills in their targeted language. Students engage in a variety of developmentally appropriate games in order to learn new vocabulary, create and elaborate upon sentence structure in order to improve communication skills. Our educators support children’s communication skills through correcting errors and modeling appropriate ways to express their ideas.

CLOSE
READING

Close reading is a method of textual analysis which focuses on the specific details of a passage in order to discern deeper meaning. Children are introduced to fiction, non-fiction & poetry genres and are given “thinking jobs” that will allow them to discern the main idea of a text. This method of textual analysis will carry students from kindergarten through 6th grade and beyond, as it instills habits of deep text interpretation, author’s craft moves & real-world connections.
