Super Why! Reading Camps
Super Why characters in action

WFSU SUPER WHY! Summer Reading Camps
The Super WHY! Summer Camp is a breakthrough three-week long program that invites beginning readers to practice key reading skills and transform into “Super Readers”. The camp was created to teach pre-reading skills to rising kindergarteners and first graders by viewing a clip of the Super WHY! television series each morning and completing corresponding games, crafts and activities throughout the day.  This recipe for learning has been a huge success!
