Under the Sea: Demme Learning Day

Summer Camp is for parents and kids to work together, exploring the world around you with activities.

Summer Camp is for parents and kids to work together, exploring the world around you with activities that will take you outside, inside, and as far as your imagination will go! Learn more by reading the Welcome to KinderTown Summer Camp! blog post.

 

Spelling You See® is a curriculum produced by Demme Learning and designed to guide students through the developmental stages of spelling. In the phonetic stage, students learn to associate letters and sounds by writing words. In later stages, students learn to spell commonly-used words by copying interesting passages and “chunking” (color-coding) letter combinations. These activities help students commit the correct spellings of words to memory.

 

Today, have your elementary-aged campers choose one of these two passages to read: Seahorses or The Vikings (great sea explorers).

 

Read the "Seahorses" and "The Vikings" passages from Spelling You See.

 

After your camper has read the chosen passage, help him think of a creative way to present the information to the rest of the family, such as:

  • Writing, directing, and presenting a play
  • Performing a dramatic reading of the passage, with props, if desired
  • Creating a slide show for the passage

 

If you have a younger camper, print out a copy of this activity page [link to preschool page]. Then read the passage to the camper and point out the following words:

  • Seahorses: fish, but, not, neck, grass
  • The Vikings: ships, long, hull, land, had

 

Dictate the words for your camper to write in the letter boxes at the bottom of the activity page. (Note how the shaded boxes help with vowel placement.)

 

Print out a copy of this activity page for your younger camper.

 

Then have your camper draw a picture in the box at the top of the page to illustrate the passage.
