Nearly 30 students took part in Cluster Tutoring’s first-ever summer program and came away with new skills in reading, writing, and comprehension. It turned out to be a perfect way for students to avoid the “summer slump” that can occur from being away from school all summer.
Students in grades K-6, four teachers, a program coordinator, and four program aides met two evenings a week. They worked on phonics and language fluency, they picked up tips on how to organize and develop writing skills, and they learned about story structure. And through it all, they read. Students always had silent reading time each evening.
These students will be ready when school starts in a month and when Cluster Tutoring starts up again at the end of September.
