ABOUT OUR PROGRAM
Mind of a Child, LLC. is a Saturday Reading and Math Virtual Enhancement Program designed with your youngster in mind. Our classes cover grades 2nd through 7th.
In today’s technological world, children are more exposed to information than ever before. As they try to make sense of the world, they need to be equipped with literacy and numeracy skills that will allow them to compete in our diverse, fast-paced society. Children benefit from being able to sift through and think critically about the information they’re presented with.
At Mind of a Child, we strongly believe that children are at a disadvantage when we ask them to merely memorize facts and equations. Our program is designed to shift from didactic methods and, instead, build students’ capacity to apply strategies as they work on reading and math skills.
It is our mission to build confidence in our students by providing a safe space in which to take academic risks as they grow as readers, orators, writers, and mathematicians to compete in this global society in the 2nd Century.
Vocabulary is responsible for 70% of reading comprehension problems in elementary schools." (Source: National Research Council study, 4th graders).
Our main goal is to encourage children to explore and understand the
interconnection of vocabulary knowledge and practices. We demonstrate the relationship between written vocabularies for reading comprehension and writing. In addition, oral vocabulary words for listening and speaking.
Our instructors will implement this central strategy with patience and encouragement to elevate the children to enhance their learning process as they envision their multiple worlds through vocabulary.
"Three-quarters of both 8th and 12th graders lack proficiency in writing, according to the most recent National Assessment of Educational Progress. And 40 percent of those who took the ACT writing exam in the high school class of 2016 lacked the reading and writing skills necessary to complete successfully a college-level English composition class,
according to the company’s data.”
