CFBISD is pleased to offer summer learning opportunities for your child through our Summer Exploration program! Our goal is for your child to explore a topic of interest extensively, develop some expertise around the topic, and create a way to share his/her learning. There will be six topic choices for kindergarten through second-grade students and six different topic choices for third- through fifth-grade students. To develop expertise in a topic your child should:
Click on the title of your topic of interest. Your child will find digital tools such as video clips, websites, books, articles, and webcams to learn about a topic.
- Develop Expertise
Your child will learn by watching, reading, and listening about the topic. Encourage your child to learn from a balance of sources: videos, audio, and books/articles. Intermediate grade children (2nd-5th grades) will record their learning in some way by taking notes, writing their learning in a journal, or recording their learning. This could be done digitally as well as with traditional paper/pencil. Primary (K-1 students) could draw and label their learning or write simple sentences about what they’ve learned.
- Create a way to share expertise:
As your child becomes an expert on their topic, they could be sharing their learning with others. They can click on Project Ideas, or Art and develop their product. When they are ready they can Show Off by creating videos, poems, dioramas...they choose! Your child can share his/her project using #CFBISDSummerExploration or share the experience with her/his Elementary School Principal and/or former homeroom teacher.
