Children's Literacy Initiative - Blueprint for Early LiteracyBlueprint for Early Literacy is based on National Reading Panel and Early Reading First recommendations, and is designed to meet state and national standards for reading, writing, and oral language development. These skills are taught in the context of 10 related, sequential themes. At the heart of each theme are award-winning children's books, carefully chosen to introduce children to the delight of reading. Lesson plans help teachers make each book a launching pad for teaching vocabulary, building comprehension, and developing phonemic awareness, phonics, and oral language skills. Blueprint themes - along with Blueprint author studies, center applications, and skill cards - build children's content knowledge and develop literacy skills through engaging, rich, and meaningful learning.PhiladelphiaChildren's Literacy Initiative - Philadelphia; Center CityChildren's Literacy Initiative
Children's Literacy Initiative - Professional Development ProgramAt Children's Literacy Initiative institutes and seminars, we use an interactive style of instruction and a practical, hands-on approach to help teachers explore the most current research in exemplary practices. Participants follow an intensive schedule of discussions, presentations, and small-group activities that emphasize both theory and practice, building on prior knowledge and moving toward clear outcomes. Teachers focus on improving students' phonemic awareness, phonics, vocabulary, fluency, and comprehension through five key components of effective literacy instruction: Reading aloud to support instruction -Teachers study our Intentional Read Aloud model of how to read purposefully to teach vocabulary, engage critical thinking skills, develop imagination and problem-solving skills, and encourage interest in a wide variety of stories and genres. The criteria for choosing the best books to support early reading skills and develop vocabulary are stressed. Developing student writing -Teachers learn to incorporate writing in classroom centers and to provide ample writing opportunities for their students throughout the day, including modeled, interactive, and independent writing. Creating a literacy-rich classroom environment -Establishing a classroom that promotes literacy through engaged, meaningful activity is an essential base for student achievement. The physical environment and learning climate are both integral to improving classroom management while meeting the needs of all children and promoting a love of learning. Teachers learn about the importance of the library corner and having high-quality children's books in centers. (Our website, CLIontheweb.org, has a virtual tour of Model Classroom environments.) Instructing in small groups -Clearly planned and effectively managed small-group activities in learning centers support children's independence and cooperation, reinforce connections across the curriculum, and keep students engaged. Teachers learn how to set up and manage centers for subjects such as science, math, writing, building blocks, and dramatic play, all with a focus on literacy as part of the activities. Using Message Time Plus® -Developed by Children's Literacy Initiative, this powerful instructional tool is one of the most effective and valued processes that we bring to a classroom. Teachers learn to plan messages that address standards and goals while reinforcing subjects and skills being studied in the classroom. The message is written while children watch, and they then participate by reading aloud. Children take turns at the board, identifying what they know - such as letters, words, or punctuation - and their learning is furthered by the teacher through a mini-lesson targeted to each child's needs.PhiladelphiaChildren's Literacy Initiative - Philadelphia; Center CityChildren's Literacy Initiative

Speaking of food, don’t forget about all the tasty treats offered in the Snack Shop! Here at Streamside, we firmly believe that one of the ways that God shows Himself to us is through the world around us - our families, our friends, and through His creation. Streamside’s Nature Center provides a controlled environment that allows campers a safe and hands-on experience with critters of all kinds. From exotic frogs, turtles, and snakes, to raccoons, ‘possum, and perhaps even an alligator, each camper will be able to experience God’s creation up close and personal. Step outside and hike the unique Bog Trail or wander through the woods, our trained guides will help you to see, touch, and even taste the beauty of nature. Come be amazed by God’s incredible design for this world! God has revealed Himself to us not only through the world around us, but also through His Word, the Bible. In our morning Bible classes and evening Vespers, we employ puppets, drama, songs, and guest teachers to help each camper learn more about God and how much He cares for them. To lead the way, a diverse staff of mature believers come from all over the world representing many backgrounds and cultures. Our common desire is for campers to begin an authentic relationship with Jesus Christ and to commit to living transformed lives. We believe it is essential to have a well-trained staff who are attentive to the needs and safety of each camper. Our staff and volunteers must complete an extensive application process along with background screening before serving at Streamside. Certified medical personnel and lifeguards are always on duty and secondary accident insurance is carried for all campers. With several camp dates to choose from, there is no need for anyone to miss out on a great time this summer. Between free time at the pool, boating pond, or snack shop, morning activities, evening Vespers, and a camp wide secret mission, there is never a dull moment! Whether climbing the mountain or making new friends on the basketball court, Kids Camp is the place to be! Streamside has four one-week encampment dates available for kids 8 to 12-years-old. Each encampment begins on a Monday afternoon and ends the following Saturday morning.Monroe*Main Site (Streamside Camp & Conference Center)Streamside Camp and Conference Center

Pals For Life - Education ProgramsPals For Life brings appropriate therapy animals to schools and educational centers to teach proper pet care and interaction. This education program provides the following benefits: --Teaches children how to care for their animals – how to train them, how to take care of them, and what their pet is trying to tell them. Teachers will also tie in the lessons they learned with their own lives as well. For example, when discussing how an animal communicates non-verbally, the children are able to think about how they also communicate with their own body language and how to read another person’s body language, an important life skill. --Stress the importance of having a calm body and calm voice around animals. Pals For Life will work with children on the autism spectrum and other special needs who often have challenges with self control, both verbally and physically. Using the animals as incentive and reward for maintaining a calm body and calm voice, the children are able to practice their self-control, and are rewarded with a cuddle from a snuggly dog.

Professional Development ProgramAt Children's Literacy Initiative institutes and seminars, we use an interactive style of instruction and a practical, hands-on approach to help teachers explore the most current research in exemplary practices. Participants follow an intensive schedule of discussions, presentations, and small-group activities that emphasize both theory and practice, building on prior knowledge and moving toward clear outcomes. Teachers focus on improving students' phonemic awareness, phonics, vocabulary, fluency, and comprehension through five key components of effective literacy instruction: Reading aloud to support instruction -Teachers study our Intentional Read Aloud model of how to read purposefully to teach vocabulary, engage critical thinking skills, develop imagination and problem-solving skills, and encourage interest in a wide variety of stories and genres. The criteria for choosing the best books to support early reading skills and develop vocabulary are stressed. Developing student writing -Teachers learn to incorporate writing in classroom centers and to provide ample writing opportunities for their students throughout the day, including modeled, interactive, and independent writing. Creating a literacy-rich classroom environment -Establishing a classroom that promotes literacy through engaged, meaningful activity is an essential base for student achievement. The physical environment and learning climate are both integral to improving classroom management while meeting the needs of all children and promoting a love of learning. Teachers learn about the importance of the library corner and having high-quality children's books in centers. (Our website, CLIontheweb.org, has a virtual tour of Model Classroom environments.) Instructing in small groups -Clearly planned and effectively managed small-group activities in learning centers support children's independence and cooperation, reinforce connections across the curriculum, and keep students engaged. Teachers learn how to set up and manage centers for subjects such as science, math, writing, building blocks, and dramatic play, all with a focus on literacy as part of the activities. Using Message Time Plus® -Developed by Children's Literacy Initiative, this powerful instructional tool is one of the most effective and valued processes that we bring to a classroom. Teachers learn to plan messages that address standards and goals while reinforcing subjects and skills being studied in the classroom. The message is written while children watch, and they then participate by reading aloud. Children take turns at the board, identifying what they know - such as letters, words, or punctuation - and their learning is furthered by the teacher through a mini-lesson targeted to each child's needs.Newark, NJ (Children's Literacy Initiative)Children's Literacy Initiative

Theatre Horizon - EducationEducation: One-third of Theatre Horizon’s mission is dedicated to arts education because we believe that through arts education, children are given tools to grow as individuals, creatively, and as a member of a team. Theatre Horizon focuses its education program on the idea that theatre is not just a discipline, it is a way of harboring creativity, ingenuity, and lessons for both inside and outside the theatre. We offer education programs for a variety of age groups with the goal of both having fun and encouraging children to grow. Summer Camps: Theatre Horizon offers summer drama camps to children aged 7 to 12 in Montgomery County. Using their bodies, voices and imaginations, students create characters and work with others to write and perform their own show. Students engage in a variety of theatrical exercises including character development, storytelling techniques, movement, vocalization, and games that encourage creativity and teamwork. A final performance for parents and friends on the last day gives young actors a chance to showcase their imaginative creations in full costume! After School Drama Program: Theatre Horizon is excited to bring after-school drama classes to area elementary schools! Classes run weekly throughout the 2010-2011 school year for roughly 18 sessions and are specially designed for elementary school students of all levels, from beginner to budding stars. The Program: Theatre Horizon will coordinate a weekly after school drama class in your elementary school. Students will learn acting techniques, participate in creative activities that encourage personal growth and teamwork, and work towards presenting a full-scale production of a play by the end of the semester! Building on the success of the Ithan Elementary School Drama Program, Theatre Horizon is expanding to include other area elementary schools. Classes are held in the school auditorium and taught by Theatre Horizon's staff of trained and certified drama teachers. Why A major element of Theatre Horizon's mission is arts education. We believe that through the arts, children are given tools to grow creatively, both as individuals and as a member of a team. Theatre Horizon focuses its education program on the idea that active participation in dramatic activities is a way of nurturing imagination, ingenuity, and a love of the arts. How can my school participate? If you are interested in having your school participate in Theatre Horizon's After-School Drama Program, please contact Michael McElroy at Michael@theatrehorizon.org or call (202) 299-6648 Autism Drama Outreach Program: Using a variety of dramatic techniques, Theatre Horizon has developed a drama program that strives to inspire imaginary play and encourage interest in human relationships, which are some of the key challenges in children with autism. Our Goals: - To inspire imagination and flexible thinking - To help children find their own voice - To teach social skills in a fun and positive way Our Approach: Our program is influenced by many different types of therapies and programs for children on the autism spectrum. Using core principles of the Son-Rise approach, floor-time therapy as well as modified and un-modified acting lessons and activities for children, we provide a program that supports and loves each individual child for who he or she is. We discover each child's unique and individual motivations and build off of them, encouraging relationships and creative play. We often create custom-made games that cross the child's motivations with our goals for them. Along with teaching the basics of drama, we incorporate principles of the three E's (energy, enthusiasm and excitement!), non-judgment, acceptance and tons of encouragement. We are mindful that the kids we work with are kids! Therefore we try to be silly, fun and interesting to watch. We are the child's very active, energetic and imaginative play partner. Our underlying goal is to help the students feel good about themselves while engaging in dramatic play with an accepting and encouraging friend. Links to other Resources: The Autism Treatment Center of America, is the worldwide teaching center for The Son-Rise Program(R), a powerful and effective treatment for children and adults challenged by Autism, Autism Spectrum Disorders, Pervasive Developmental Disorder (PDD), Asperger's Syndrome, and other developmental difficulties. The Son-Rise Program was originated in 1974 by parents, Barry Neil Kaufman (best-selling author, Son-Rise: The Miracle Continues) and Samahria Lyte Kaufman for their son. The treatment and educational model has changed the way children with Autism are helped worldwide. All Son-Rise Programs are designed especially for parents to teach parents how to effectively help and work with their children. MontgomeryTheatre Horizon - Montgomery; NorristownTheatre Horizon

Youth Preparedness - American Red Cross - North Central Pennsylvania ChapterThe American Red Cross has developed youth preparedness programs that increase awareness and understanding of natural hazards in order to help them prepare for, respond to, and recover from disaster and emergency situations. · Prepare With Pedro – This program is designed to teach children in kindergarten through grade two and their families how to stay safe during disaster situations and emergencies. Disasters can be scary for young kids, but children are much better at adapting to situations when they know what to expect. Children in this program learn about basic home hazards and emergency situations by working side-by-side with adults to complete an activity book. · The Pillowcase Project – The Pillowcase Project is a preparedness education program for students in grades three through five that teaches children about safety skills, local hazards, and basic coping skills. Red Cross volunteers lead students through a “learn, practice, share” framework to engage them in disaster preparedness and survival skills. Each child receives a pillowcase to start a preparedness kit.UnionAmerican Red Cross - North Central Pennsylvania ChapterAmerican Red Cross - Pennsylvania
