Language Arts Triathlon 5-6

Summer Language Arts

In this course, students will build advanced grammar, vocabulary, and writing skills by solving engaging puzzles and competing in daily language arts challenges with their classmates. Through these daily activities, students will level-up their mastery of essential skills for reading and writing like a pro.

Each day of class includes time dedicated to each of three "events" that students will compete in during the Language Arts Triathlon on the final day of class:

  • Grammar: Students will investigate a grammar concept and use their new understanding to solve a daily puzzle. Concepts begin with essential skills for recognizing parts of speech and culminate in a deep analysis of sentence structure.
  • Vocabulary: Each day, students will gain skills for decoding advanced vocabulary as they explore etymology and word roots through engaging vocabulary puzzles.
  • Writing: Students will build their writing skills by advancing through a series of increasingly challenging tasks, from constructing clear sentences to writing a strong paragraph for an essay.

The final day of class is the Language Arts Triathlon, an engaging, collaborative competition where students will put their skills to the test in a battle of words! Through this event, students will measure their progress, both against themselves and in friendly competition with their classmates.

This two-week course meets Monday through Friday for three hours each day.

Space is very limited for our summer programs. Please do not wait until the last minute to enroll. If there are more than two weeks before the course starts, a $200 deposit will be due when enrolling, with the balance due two weeks before the course begins.

Summer Enrollment Deadline: Summer enrollment for each class closes one week after the class starts.

My children have been students of AoPS Academy for several years now. The staff is very good at identifying and encouraging high achieving students to attain their fullest potential. The instructors engage kids to solve tough math problems, and push them to think logically and come up with unique solutions, instead of following a memorized formula. I have witnessed many classes where students are given the opportunity to suggest multiple ways of approaching the same problem. This has really helped my children develop independent learning skills and a stronger foundation in mathematics. The staff truly care for each and every student’s growth. Every child gets an abundance of individual attention. Programs such as the math competition classes, MATHCOUNTS Trainer Contest, and Short Story Contest really challenge the kids to reach up to the next level. The language arts classes like Debate & Public Speaking and College Essay Writing provide a much higher quality of education for their students. Thank you so much for being such a valuable resource for my children.
