LINKSTM Summer 2014 Literacy Program

A GREAT WAY TO IMPROVE READING AND WRITING SKILLS OVER THE SUMMER

The Learning Disabilities Association of New Brunswick (LDANB) – Moncton Chapter, in partnership with Anglophone East School District, are thrilled to be able to offer a LINKSTM (Linking Language to Learning) literacy program again this summer. We have received grants from the New Brunswick Student Employment Experience Development (SEED) program and the Canada Summer Jobs program to hire university students. With this support, and financial assistance from our generous community sponsors, we are able to provide the LINKSTM Program free of charge in two locations: Frank L. Bowser School and Beaverbrook School.


LINKSTM is a research-based literacy program for children who are experiencing difficulty in reading and writing. The program helps children become more independent learners through the use of good books and opportunities for writing. Our LINKSTM Summer 2014 Literacy Program is for students who would benefit from extra reading instruction and will be entering grades 1, 2, 3 or 4 in September 2014 in any school in Anglophone East School District.


  • All students applying for the program will be tested by a qualified examiner.

  • A trained tutor will provide students with 60 minutes daily of individualized instruction for 4 weeks.

  • Sessions are at the same time each day, unless otherwise arranged.

  • Testing will be repeated at the end of the program.


NOTE: Attendance is mandatory. Missed sessions will have to be made up.
There will be two blocks with five session options per day as outlined below:
