Summer Charge will be a virtual course where students use an online platform and a novel to maintain skills learned during the school year, throughout the summer. There will be communication from your child’s teacher notifying you of Summer Charge registration. Your child will be tasked with online discussions using the provided novel, while also strengthening literacy skills and vocabulary development through practice on the online platform, Amplify. Amplify gamifies your child’s reading skill development to make it fun and engaging. It allows your student to complete missions to save the ‘Last Readers’ that include interactive challenges based on key literacy skills. Students have the option to use either a district Chromebook (that they will check out and bring home for the summer) or their own device.
During the Summer Charge, students have the opportunity to earn two trips for completing their work, as well as an end of program celebration. There are no program costs to families.
