Are you looking for summer camp fun for your child? Do you need to keep your child busy with learning during the summer time? Prestige is the place to be for summer fun! Our Academy’s host a large amount of fun activities for our enrolled students that keep their interest, keep the learning in motion, and make new friends along the way. We have a weekly theme each month that is sure to be packed full of fun and exciting adventures. For example, Fun and Fitness, Wilderness, Super Heroes, Safari Adventures are sure to be a hit with the children. Our teaching staff also have a lot of fun during the Summer Camp festivities which makes the activity even more special.

Some of our older students will also be able to leave the campus for field trips (with prior parent permission, of course) so they can experience a new environment and activity. We also have special guests that we invite and will come to our schools for those that are too little to leave the Center on a field trip excursion. The guests can range from magicians, petting zoo, bubble makers, and so much more! There is something for everyone!

Along with the daily field trips and special guests, we also have a variety of special events that we recognize. During the summer months, we will celebrate Pre-Kindergarten and Kindergarten graduations (for the Academy’s that offer Private Kindergarten), Father’s Day, Fourth of July, and our end of the summer bash, just to name a few.

Posted below is a summer camp calendar for June from our Lake Ridge Prestige as an example of what you can expect for daily activities. Each Prestige Preschool Academy creates their own events and activities.

6 Ways Cooking With Kids Can Boost Literacy Skills

By Apple Valley School News, Arcola School News, Arvada School News, Aurora School News, Brooklyn Park School News, Carlsbad School News, Chino Hills School News, Claremont School News, Cooking & Nutrition, Eastvale School News, Eden Prairie News, Elk Grove School News, Fontana School News, Irvine Oak Creek School News, Lake Ridge School News, Maple Grove School News, Meridian School News, Minnetonka School News, Natomas School News, News & Blog, Northfield School News, Reunion School News, Roseville School News, Woodbridge Caton Hill School News

My children love to help in the kitchen. And while it’s not something I have the time (or patience!) for every day, I recognize the learning value of cooking together. From toddlers to teenagers, cooking offers a practical, hands-on way for kids to:

  • Practice an important life skill.
  • Develop mathematical understanding (measuring ingredients, setting oven temperature, etc.).
  • Further their scientific knowledge (observing change).
  • Apply their reading, writing, speaking, and listening skills.

Encouraging literacy skill development as you cook together is easy when you allow it to flow naturally from what you’re doing. So, rustle up your favorite kid-friendly recipes (our Kids Cooking activity book has 30 great suggestions!) and give these simple ideas a try.

1. Make a shopping list together

Before you begin, name the items you’ll need with your child. Independent writers can jot down a list for you and you can entice pre-readers with a paper and a pen, just like the ones you are using. Sit beside your little one as you write your shopping list, saying aloud what you are writing as you add each item to the list. Your child will be sure to imitate you and will learn an important purpose of writing in the process. Younger kids also enjoy ticking off the items from the list once you’re at the store.

2. Read the recipe together

Recipes provide a wonderful introduction to instructional texts. Older children can read the ingredient list, gather the necessary ingredients, and read the recipe instructions aloud, step-by-step, as you go. Keep it simple for little ones. For example, “A recipe tells us what we need to make our cupcakes, and how to make them. It says we need flour, here’s the flour…” 

3. Taste ingredients

Sometimes when cooking together, I’ll ask my daughters if they’re brave enough for a blind taste test. To play, simply ask your child to cover her eyes and open her mouth. Then, offer a small taste of one of the ingredients you’re cooking with and invite her to guess which it is. It’s a great way to get your kids talking about different categories of foods (spices, fruit, dairy product, etc.), as well as textures (smooth, lumpy, crunchy, etc.) and flavors (sweet, spicy, sour, salty, etc.) and it provides a physical connection between the senses and the descriptive words used. 

4. Grow vocabulary

There are so many interesting words to learn when cooking! Names of ingredients — cinnamon or saffron — as well as processes, such as whisking and dicing, measurements and temperatures. Hearing and seeing these words used within a real-life application, equips your child to better understand and remember the words and their meanings.

5. Encourage younger children to notice environmental print

Environmental print is all around us. It’s the name given to print that appears on signs, labels and logos. Encouraging preschoolers and beginning readers to notice environmental print helps them to learn that reading involves not just letters and sounds but pictures and context too. Asking your three-year-old to find the cornflakes from among the cereal boxes in your pantry, or your six-year-old to find the all-purpose flour that sits next to the self-raising flour on the shelf, is inviting them to take notice of environmental print.

6. Read a story

While the jelly sets or your cake bakes, why not sit together and enjoy a story related to food or the dish you are cooking?

Inviting your child to spend time cooking with you is a delicious way to encourage literacy learning through all of the sounds, sights, and tastes in the kitchen. Hopefully, the end-product of your cooking time will be delicious too!
