Conquer the Summer Slide with a Reading & Writing Readiness Program With ESF Camps at Norwood-Fontbonne Academy This Summer!

Find out if this new program, taught by Abigail Montler, a teacher at Norwood-Fontbonne Academy, is right for your child.

Summer is the perfect time to help children become inspired, confident, and strong readers and writers. ESF Camps at Norwood-Fontbonne Academy in Chestnut Hill will present Reading & Writing Adventures: A Readiness Program from August 6-10, 2018 for rising 1st through 3rd graders.


This course will help students maintain their learning from the previous year and transition successfully into the new school year. Through creative reading and writing workshops and rich literacy experiences with picture and chapter books, campers will strengthen their reading and writing skills while having fun.


An interactive, multi-sensory approach will be particularly helpful to campers who benefit from tactile and kinesthetic teaching and learning approaches, as well as the more traditional auditory and visual pathways. Campers will participate in 90 minutes of Reading Readiness and 90 minutes of Writing Readiness each morning. Afternoons are filled with camp crafts and recreational activities.


This course will be taught by Abigail Montler, a second grade teacher at Norwood-Fontbonne Academy. Abby graduated from Shippensburg University with a major in Elementary Education and a minor in Spanish.


She taught first grade for three years in Virginia, then moved to Philadelphia where she teaches second grade at Norwood Fontbonne Academy. She has just completed her sixth year teaching, and is working on completing her Master’s degree in Reading Education with a certification as a Reading Specialist through Chestnut Hill College. She is passionate about early literacy and strives to have students become lifelong readers and learners!
