The University of Tennessee at Martin Office of Extended Campus and Continuing Education will host Reading Enrichment Camp June 23-27.
“Adventures With Arthur” will meet from 9-11 a.m. for children in first and second grades.
This camp provides a week of reading antics with the world’s most lovable aardvark, “Arthur,” by Mark Brown. Every day becomes an adventure, from camping out with space aliens to meeting the president. This camp is led by Sheena Rayburn, graduate teaching assistant in the UT Martin Reading Center, also a licensed teacher.
“Silly Shenanigans” is slated from 12:30-2:30 p.m. for children in third and fourth grades.
This camp includes funny stories, poems and jokes designed especially for the 8- to 9-year-old crowd. It is led by Ashley Raygon, a graduate teaching assistant in the UT Martin Reading Center who is seeking her teacher’s license.
“Movers and Shakers” will be held from 3-5 p.m. for children in fifth and sixth grades.
Unique individuals from sports heroes to business moguls are spotlighted in this reading enrichment camp for pre-teens. Participating in a mock election and creating your own business are part of the action planned. This camp is led by Will Tate, a graduate teaching assistant in the UT Martin Reading Center who is seeking his teacher’s license.
