Home >> Summer Courses 2021 >> ELA Summer course-Elementary level 1

COVID-19 pandemic has been hard on students who had to drastically cope with a new style of learning. As a result, children across the globe are now experiencing a COVID slide. There is now an eminent gap in their learning and it will only increase if you do not intervene.

Summer Slide + COVID Slide = Glaring Learning Gaps

It is very common for children to experience a summer slide during the summer months when school is off. According to the US Department of Education, every summer, students experience a 25% decrease in their English reading skills, on average.

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)

When should I register my child for ELA summer courses with eTutorWorld?

Summer courses are meant for the summer break when children do not have school and find it hard to maintain a schedule. These courses are designed to help the students cover lessons from the previous year (1st-grade language arts) and take a peek into the upcoming classes (2nd-grade language arts) in the next academic year. You should consider registering your child for the ELA summer course near the year-end of your current school session.

How can eTutorWorld customize the ELA course for my child?

At eTutorWorld, we customize both the curriculum and the pace of the course according to a child’s learning style and speed. You are welcome to share your concerns (topics) with us and we will modify the curriculum accordingly. We will also conduct a diagnostic test that will help you understand your child’s requirement and we may alter the curriculum after a discussion with you.

What topics does this course cover? Will it build on the previous levels?

ELA1 is the first level of this course and is meant for children in grades 1 and 2. In this course, the aim is to introduce the basics of the language and to encourage children to understand the significance of English literature. Before we get there, however, we cover the base with topics like Phonics, Vocabulary, and Reading. We follow them up with Creative Writing, Fun Activities, Reviews, and Assessments.

Does the course have a flexible timeline?

Yes, all the courses have a flexible timeline at eTutorWorld and the same applies to the ELA – Level 1 course. We do not have a set timeline for the completion of the course. You are free to discuss and set a pace for your child’s lessons. We will move ahead with the child and ensure the target of the summer course is completely achieved by the time schools reopen again.
