Elementary students who are not enrolled in an ASV+ activity participate in an alternative program that combines Literacy and Technology and is supported by a team of teachers and ASV specialists. The sessions take place twice a week from 15:20 to 16:20 while classmates are at ASV+. The program has a common goal of providing enriched learning opportunities through reading and technology-related activities for participants. The various lessons and activities are meant to maximize student engagement and provide grade-level appropriate learning for the child.
The Fun Technology Program covers learning areas such as digital art, multimedia creation, and foundations of coding. The preferred device is the iPad. It is partially based on Apple’s Everyone Can Create program and on Code.org’s coding curriculum. Students enjoy these activities one hour per week.
The Fun Literacy sessions take place in classrooms and in the Elementary Library. Students enjoy guided reading, independent reading time and exploring additional reading options. Students in upper elementary also are challenged with various vocabulary and other literacy skill games.
