20% discount for KOA readers: Summerreaders reading game in Fairport, now in its 34th year!


Does your child need help in reading? Summer is the best time!

Due to some last-minute switching of students, Summereaders has 2 openings for rising 3rd and 4th grade students in the Summereaders individualized remedial reading game program, now in its 34th season!

They are offering Kids Out and About readers a 20% discount: That is, $90 off the $450 program fee. The program would be $360 for 15 hours plus testing and report, which is less expensive than tutoring!

Summereaders began in 1971 and helped its 1000th student to read three summers ago.

How does the Summerreaders program work?

Each session is an hour a day for 3 weeks, and each "team" is typically 6 students of similar ages working with 3 teachers. Students work on the specific phonic elements they need to work on by practicing them in fun game formats, including relay races, board games, and other hands-on, active games. Each team works daily, one hour per weekday, for 3 weeks. Students are also encouraged to read at home for points. The points earn them a "black belt" in reading.

Who teaches Summerreaders?

The Summereaders Director is Dean Kindig, a Rochester Teacher of the Year, who is currently a resource teacher K-4 at The Harley School. Kindig has experienced 30-plus years of continued success using his hands-on approaches. Dean has conducted statewide teacher workshops on learning games, wrote and consulted for Instructor magazine and the Silver Burdett-Ginn English Program, and wrote Winning Learners, a book for teachers on how to make reading instruction fun.
