The summer vacation has just officially started and students are all very excited to stay up late and wake up late. Many are primed to hit the beach or go out of town. After spending ten months inside the classroom, finishing projects, doing homework at nights and weekends, and studying for examinations, students are definitely looking forward to taking a break during the summer time.

For teachers, the break means an uphill battle with the “summer slide.” Studies show that students could lose up to 2 months of literacy and math skills throughout the summer season, especially that the preschool and grade school years are the crucial stage to develop foundational skills needed in the long run. To solve this problem, enrolling kids in a Summer Program that runs for an hour or two per day answers the learning gap.

The proponents of Galileo acknowledges the different learning pace and style of each child, taking into account one’s need for an encouraging and positive learning environment. Their organization aims to improve students’ academic aptitude by cultivating mastery of Math and English skills in a fun and meaningful way, thereby making them lifelong learners.

This summer 2017, Galileo will be offering programs that will help prevent summer learning loss in many exciting ways. These innovative programs tap into the interests of the students while at the same time teach them the essential and practical learning skills.

The Wikang Filipino is a Filipino Reading Program where students will be reading Filipino texts to develop their fluency in speaking, reading comprehension and vocabulary in Filipino. They will explore the world of wonder and discover what it means to be a child in a Filipino culture. The two-module program offers local titles from Adarna Publishing House that not only teach students to comprehend Filipino texts, but also increase their appreciation for the Filipino culture.

The Summer Math Club ​is a program integrating Math concepts to real-life situations. It aims to enhance the student’s mathematical ability, creativity, and critical thinking skills. The main goals of the Summer Math Club are financial literacy and entrepreneurship. The two-module program also aims to teach money management and entrepreneurship along with the Math concepts essential to each lesson such as basic operations, percentage, decimals, measurement, and graphs.

The Digital Summer Camp: Coding and Technology is a techie summer treat that allows children to have fun while learning digital skills. This programming course aims to break classroom walls and create a learning space that will boost child’s creativity using technology. It also encourages learning through collaboration and cooperation. With Power Mac trainers as their mentors, children will be able to enhance their use of digital tools and bring life to their imagination. This is in collaboration with Power Mac Center, one of the recognized leading Apple Premium Reseller, Authorized Education Reseller, Authorized Training Center and Authorized Service Provider in the Philippines.

Meanwhile, the Galileo Enhancement Bacolod Center will continued to offer their regular courses, namely Math, English, and Singapore Math for summer.
