Super Why! Reading Camps

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!

WFSU Super Why! 2015

WFSU was delighted to host two Super Why! Summer Reading Camps in the summer of 2015. The first was offered at Jefferson Elementary School and was sponsored by WFSU's Ready to Learn Grant.
