REGISTRATION NOW OPEN!
Our 2023-2024 program will once again include 8 monthly, online, parent sessions and two in-person Curriculum Days.
Parent sessions are 90-minute workshops, which include a teaching portion and time for questions. The teaching component of all online sessions will be recorded to allow for asynchronous learning. Workshops cover academic topics and instructional strategies, resources and activities to help you work with your child. They build upon each other in succession so it is best if you are able to attend all sessions, either in person or virtually. Families select an academic level (Level 1/2 and Level 3/4), appropriate for where their child is developmentally. We encourage you to primarily attend the level you are registered for however you have the option to attend any leveled workshop.
Parent-student sessions will meet eight times this year, with two in person parent-student Curriculum Days. Curriculum Day is designed to provide hands-on coaching with academic activities. Parents come with their children anytime during this drop-in session and rotate through different learning centers led by our teaching team who will model the instructional approaches taught during the parent workshops. You are encouraged to connect with other parents during these events, however the responsibility of supervising your child is an essential component to the program.
The Learning Program Schedule 2023-2024
Level 1/2: (Pre-K- 2nd Grade)*
Level 3/4: (3rd Grade-6th Grade)*
*Levels are not limited to age/grade, they are a general range for the skills being worked on. Families with learners working on similar skills may enroll in whichever parent session is most appropriate for their child.
|DESCRIPTION OF LEVELS|
|Level 1 is for families new to LPB with a student in pre-school to 1st grade or between the ages of 3-7, beginning to show an interest in letters and numbers and able to attend to an activity for 5-10 minutes. Families registering for this level should have students able to understand at least 50 words.|
|Level 2 is for returning Level 1 families or families new to LPB with a student in 1st to 3rd grade or between the ages of 6-9. Level 2 builds on skills acquired in Level 1 and families registering for this level should have students with Level 1 foundational skills. We will be working with predictable text such as carrier phrases and sentences with familiar pattern and repetition. Students will be developing beginning text-based comprehension skills such as understanding new vocabulary and recalling what they have just read. On the numeracy front, students should already have a familiarity with numbers as we’ll be introducing arithmetic operations.|
|Level 3 is for returning Level 2 families or families new to LPB with a student in 2nd to 4th grade or between the ages of 8-11. Level 3 builds on skills acquired in Level 2 and families registering for this level should have students with Level 2 foundational skills. They should be comfortable working with predictable text as we will be introducing sentences that have less repetition and reliance on pattern. Students will be developing within-the text comprehension skills using strategies to understand and sequence the main idea and details of what they have read. On the numeracy front, we will continue to build on arithmetic operations and applying these to time and money concepts.|
|Level 4 is for returning Level 3 families or families new to LPB with a student in 3rd to 6th grade or between the ages of 10-12. Level 4 builds on skills acquired in Level 3 and families registering for this level should have students with Level 3 foundational skills. They should be comfortable working with sentences of increasing length and complexity as we will be using text in short paragraphs that sequence logically. Students will be working on higher-level comprehension skills beyond-the-text, such as predicting, making text-to-self connections, and drawing conclusions and inferences. On the numeracy front, we will continue to build on arithmetic operations, time and money, and will also work on more advanced math topics such as place value and fractions.|
|Please note: for 2023-24 programming, Levels 1-2 will meet together and 3-4 will meet together. Skills within each individual level (1, 2, 3 or 4) will be addressed in each session. When registering, please select the individual level (1, 2, 3 or 4) that most appropriately fits the current skill level of your child.
Levels are not limited to age/grade, they are a general age/grade range for the skills being worked on. Families with learners working on similar skills may enroll in parent session that is most appropriate for that learner.
