The Virtual ExCEL Tending the Garden is for students with vison loss and are pre-symbolic learners. It includes a live hour at 3:00 ET, June 13-17, Monday through Friday, and is free to all registrants. We will continue to record these sessions so all have the opportunity to learn. Also included are five at-home extension activities for the camp theme and with the camp supplies that will be sent to the student. Parents, please register your student for the camp that matches their needs. As parents, you know if they would be more appropriately placed with the age level identified. If you are unsure, we suggest reaching out to your teacher of students with visual impairments. And remember, each student must be registered separately and must meet the definition of blindness in your state.
Students will tend a virtual garden while learning about area, perimeter, and pictographs. This exploration will include building mathematical vocabulary, understanding how food is grown, and creating a virtual salad. If your camper needs assistance, please have someone attend the camp with them so they may participate fully in the activities.
Grants are providing students from the United States of America an APH product that will be used during camp so we need registrations completed early! For students to receive items in time for camp, they must have registered for this week by June 2, 2022. Those that register after that date are still welcome to attend; we would suggest working with your teacher of students with visual impairments to procure the product for use during camp as all items are available through Federal Quota.
To make sure we have the correct information for your student, you may be contacted via email to confirm information. We are excited to have your student join our Virtual ExCEL Tending the Garden!
