So, MMPT is offering all kinds of summer camps, and when I read about this one, I knew this would be a good opportunity for me to find out if she was ready for all that pre K and K would entail.
Not only the numbers, letters, colors, shapes, etc, but also sitting at a table, taking turns, listening to the teacher, etc.
Accordingt to the leaders, Ellie did great. For that matter, they said Miss GG did pretty well too.
I know that Miss Donna has them do some workbooks at daycare too, so she'll be providing a little to them this year, so we'll see where Gabbi is at the end of this school year before we decide on her plan next year. She may actually need to go to pre K, but again... it's a little too soon to tell.
We had a couple of students who are doing their internships with MMPT who ran the camps. It was good to have "almost" professionals manning the camp ship all summer. It was great experience for them to create the activities for each camp... "Friend Builders", "Kindergarten Readiness", "Super Sounds", "Sensory Camp", "Fine Motor Camp", among others.
Gabbi spent a day or two crying her way through, when she heard me in the hall. I am telling you... she is CONNECTED to her mama!!
In situations when I am not around, I have been told Ellie really takes care of her sister. I think that is awesome!
I sent my camera to camp each day, and the students would snap a few pics for me.
They used a multi-sensory approach to learning letters, shapes, and all.
Look at all those activities in the background. That's a lot of crafty stuff!! Makes me smile!!
After camp, Ellie brought me all her treasures.
It was fun having them at the office all week, and knowing that at lunch, when my patients were finished for the morning, I could go to the OT room and there would be my babies. I liked it!! I wish camp could be year round!
