Summer 2020 Academic Review [Online]

This summer, Bennett Day Camp and Nurturing Wisdom have teamed up to create an online, academic year-end review to prepare your student for next school year. Each morning, highly qualified Nurturing Wisdom tutors will work online with small groups of 4-6 students to review benchmark concepts in math, reading, and writing from the previous school year. These dedicated small review groups will help students cement their understanding, highlight any areas that need additional review, and set them up for success in the next academic year. View Nurturing Wisdom's 4-week class descriptions.
Bennett Day Camp and Nurturing WisdomEach afternoon, the Bennett Day Camp team will help students reinforce the math and literacy concepts from the morning's session in an online, project-based learning setting. A morning review of fractions will see an afternoon of baking, work with vowels may lead to a poetry slam -- no two projects will be alike and students will love applying all that they have learned.

The Nurturing Wisdom Tutoring portion of the program will be offered in four, one week sessions highlighting the most fundamental concepts from each grade level. Students can register for all four weeks or the ones that most target their needs. Any student who registers for all four weeks will have access to the Nurturing Wisdom grade level diagnostic test for free.

Below is a sample overview of the fifth grade and high school blocks.

Sample 4-Week Overview: Fifth Grade

Week 1 

  • Math: Students will practice operations like multiplication and division with whole numbers.
  • Reading: Using fiction texts, students will learn about plot and theme.
  • Writing: Students will improve their paragraph writing skills by focusing on introduction and conclusion sentences.

Week 2

  • Math: This week’s focus will be on operations with fractions and decimals.
  • Reading: Students will switch to non-fiction texts to identify main ideas and details
  • Writing: The group will learn how to thoroughly and clearly answer open-ended questions.

Week 3

  • Math: Time for geometry! Students will focus on geometric concepts such as area and perimeter with a variety of polygons and circles. 
  • Reading: Students will turn their attention to character and setting while reading fiction texts.
  • Writing: We’ll return to paragraph structure, with an emphasis on providing strong evidence.

Week 4

  • Math: During the final week, students will work on math reasoning skills using patterns, charts, and graphs.
  • Reading: The class will read non-fiction text to make inferences and draw conclusions.
  • Writing: More work with open-ended questions!

Sample 4-Week Overview: High School Math

Week 1

  • Students will learn how to manipulate rational expressions and polynomials. Related concepts such as factoring and FOIL will also be covered.

Week 2 

  • The focus will be on linear equations, absolute value equations, inequalities, and systems of equations.

Week 3 

  • Students will dive into linear functions by learning how to understand and interpret functions. Graphing functions, function notation, and concepts such as domain and range will also be studied.

Week 4 

  • Kicking it up a notch, students will learn more advanced function concepts involving  linear, absolute value, and quadratic functions. Students will also be introduced to parent functions and function transformations.
