The Community Classroom Summer Reading Group

When: This group runs for 6 weeks, July 13-August 19th. Tuesdays and Thursdays from 1-2 pm EST.

Who: Rising 4th-8th graders

Where: In-person in our Florence, MA classroom or online. Students who are in-person will be asked to wear masks and the classroom will adhere to other safety guidelines

Cost: $200 for 6 weeks of guided instruction (less than $16 per session)

How: Register here

For parents and caregivers: Are you looking for a way to keep your child reading during the summer that doesn’t feel like school but still offers guided support with a certified teacher? Look no further! This is the perfect alternative for “tutoring light,” where your child can socialize safely with peers, receive instruction from an expert educator, and stay engaged with reading (preventing summer slide!).

For kids: Tired of book clubs that read books you don’t like? Want to join a super fun community of readers? Unlike most book clubs where everyone reads the same thing, you pick the titles you want to read. YOU choose a title to read and discuss. Members bring in at least one book each and discuss it with the rest of the club (1-2 minutes). After all the reviews are done, members are free to pick a partner to chat with. Everyone will be able to participate in book-related activities. Discussion questions, themes, activities, and recommendations will be provided.

Led by: This Reading Group will be taught by Karrisa Fabin, a tutor of The Community Classroom who holds certifications in Library K-12, Special Education PK-12, and Instructional Technology. She is also certified through the Virtual High School Collaborative. Karrisa holds a Masters in Library Science and Technology from Simmons University and a Bachelor of Arts in Elementary and Special Education from Bay Path University. She has over 20 years of teaching and tutoring experience in grades PreK-12 with a focus on special education needs.

Please note: This opportunity is limited to 15 readers and open to rising 4th-8th grade students in Florence, MA, and nationally.

I immediately felt we contacted the right place when Megan truly listened to all of my daughter’s needs and conveyed genuine concern for her overall well-being. She understood that remote tutoring would not be effective for my daughter and that it would be best in-person. She thought it may take a f... Read More
  • My ninth grader worked with a Biology instructor (Carly) via zoom. Initially I was hoping for “in-person” tutoring and hesitant to agree to online sessions as he definitely had “zoom fatigue”. After learning about my child, the tutor that Megan suggested would be a good match was several states away so if we were to work with her, there was no option besides remote learning. I felt an immediate trust in Megan’s expertise, as she patiently listened to me about my child’s needs and le... Read More
