What is Lorem Ipsum?

Lorem Ipsum is simply dummy text of the printing and typesetting industry. Lorem Ipsum has been the industry’s standard dummy text ever since the 1500s, when an unknown printer took a galley of type and scrambled it to make a type specimen book. It has survived not only five centuries, but also the leap into electronic typesetting, remaining essentially unchanged. It was popularised in the 1960s with the release of Letraset sheets containing Lorem Ipsum passages, and more recently with desktop publishing software like Aldus PageMaker including versions of Lorem Ipsum.

Why do we use it?

It is a long established fact that a reader will be distracted by the readable content of a page when looking at its layout. The point of using Lorem Ipsum is that it has a more-or-less normal distribution of letters, as opposed to using ‘Content here, content here’, making it look like readable English. Many desktop publishing packages and web page editors now use Lorem Ipsum as their default model text, and a search for ‘lorem ipsum’ will uncover many web sites still in their infancy. Various versions have evolved over the years, sometimes by accident, sometimes on purpose (injected humour and the like).

Where does it come from?

Contrary to popular belief, Lorem Ipsum is not simply random text. It has roots in a piece of classical Latin literature from 45 BC, making it over 2000 years old. Richard McClintock, a Latin professor at Hampden-Sydney College in Virginia, looked up one of the more obscure Latin words, consectetur, from a Lorem Ipsum passage, and going through the cites of the word in classical literature, discovered the undoubtable source. Lorem Ipsum comes from sections 1.10.32 and 1.10.33 of “de Finibus Bonorum et Malorum” (The Extremes of Good and Evil) by Cicero, written in 45 BC. This book is a treatise on the theory of ethics, very popular during the Renaissance. The first line of Lorem Ipsum, “Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet..”, comes from a line in section 1.10.32.

The standard chunk of Lorem Ipsum used since the 1500s is reproduced below for those interested. Sections 1.10.32 and 1.10.33 from “de Finibus Bonorum et Malorum” by Cicero are also reproduced in their exact original form, accompanied by English versions from the 1914 translation by H. Rackham.

Where can I get some?

There are many variations of passages of Lorem Ipsum available, but the majority have suffered alteration in some form, by injected humour, or randomised words which don’t look even slightly believable. If you are going to use a passage of Lorem Ipsum, you need to be sure there isn’t anything embarrassing hidden in the middle of text. All the Lorem Ipsum generators on the Internet tend to repeat predefined chunks as necessary, making this the first true generator on the Internet. It uses a dictionary of over 200 Latin words, combined with a handful of model sentence structures, to generate Lorem Ipsum which looks reasonable. The generated Lorem Ipsum is therefore always free from repetition, injected humour, or non-characteristic words etc.

...& fresh memories!

We are thrilled to celebrate one full month of fun

Career Day Captivates Campers

On June 28th, our campers participated in a special Career Day! They were treated to interactive presentations by the Kendall Police Department as well as the Miami Dade Fire Rescue. Police officers gave our campers a look inside their cars and even had our students dawn bulletproof vests. One special officer had our campers revved up as he did tricks on his motorcycle. The presentation given by the fire department was just as exciting. Our students loved climbing onto a brand new firetruck and pretending they were headed to fight a fire. The firefighters were so inspired by our students enthusiasm that they allowed out students to handle and use one of their firehoses. Naturally, this was a hit with our campers and we hope to see some future firefighters and policemen come out of our camp.

Dive Into Oceanography

Our PK & Kindergarten class became budding marine biologists in this session’s oceanography course. Through the use of crafts, songs, and games they learned all about underwater creatures. Students created an octopus out of froot loops cereal and sang songs about whales. They built their own turtles and gave jellyfish a colorful new look. By introducing young campers to basic marine life, we hope to foster a love and respect for all animals. Our campers were so proud to share their newfound knowledge with the other campers. It’s safe to say they had oceans of fun!

Fashion Design Course Inspires Young Entrepreneurs

We are ready for the runway! Girls from 1st through 8th grade participated in our fashion design course. Using a hands-on approach, campers learned what it really takes to put together a successful magazine spread. These ladies learned how to style hair and match the correct hairstyle to the overall theme of their shoot. They also created some fabulous accessories to couple with their newfound skills and even made their very own lip gloss from scratch. Our fashionistas took what they learned and applied it to their very own photoshoot at the end of the session.

Creative Writing Merges Educational Values With Fun

Parents looking for a fun way to reinforce writing skills have met their match! Our creative writing course gives campers a chance to discover their inner voice while reinforcing principles learned throughout the school year. Campers learned about Onomatopoeia while creating their own comic books. A favorite amongst first and second graders was the lesson on personification. Through the use of crafts and storytelling our students brought a pet rock to life. They gave each rock a personality, likes and dislikes, and completed their lesson with a pet rock makeover that reflected their uniqueness. We are happy to say that all pet rocks and creative writing lessons have found a great home.

and we are so happy to?welcome back our ACC campers!!!

Summer is here...

Summer of Science

In our science experiment course, 1st and 2nd graders got the chance to learn about science hands-on. They made rice dance, played with mini volcanos, and even made their own rainbow! A favorite among the campers was an experiment called Elephant Toothpaste. Who knew only 4 ingredients could lead to this much fun? Each camper created their own colorful concoction using hydrogen peroxide, yeast, dish soap, and warm water. Camper Christopher Malialis says the coolest part was, “watching it bubble up and getting to play with it after.”

Inaugural Survival Skills Course Connects
Campers With Nature

As part of our initiative to influence fun, ACC summer camp has introduced its first ever survival course! Inspired by the tv show Survivor, campers in grades 3 and up are learning crucial skills to help them get by in the wilderness. Our brave campers learned to filter water, build a shelter out of natural resources and distinguish venomous animals from non-venomous. Our middle school campers even created a detailed shelter in our own courtyard using only leaves, sticks, and some rope! After Session 1, these campers are ready to explore the great outdoors.

Pixar Day of Play

To celebrate our first week together, our campers were treated to a Pixar Day. Campers stepped into role of the main characters from movies Coco, Inside Out, Finding Nemo, and Up. Each class was adorned with decor to make them feel like they had been transported to a new world. Using Inside Out, campers identified different emotions by playing fun games and creating their own memory orbs. Coco transported us to Mexico to learn about the culture and make our own sugar skulls. Our campers learned about Oceanography using Finding Nemo! They identified fish, understood how blubber keeps animals warm, and added their own unique fish to our ACC fish tank. To wrap the day up, each camper became a Wilderness Explorer as they looked for animals around the school and celebrated with some indoor s’mores.

Red Cross Visit Provides Lots of Fun

On June 12, our camp received a special visit from the American Red Cross. Campers in PK through 2nd grade got to be a part of the first ever preparedness course with Pedro the Penguin. They discussed fire safety, learned to stop, drop, and roll, and received certificates for their excellent work. Our older campers participated in the Pillowcase Project, a course designed to prepare them for what to do in the case of an emergency. As they discussed the importance of creating a home escape plan, each camper received and decorated a pillowcase. These pillowcases are intended to hold the emergency supplies they learned about throughout their visit. Our campers are now prepared for any and all emergencies!

The Project

The 4th graders of the Archimedean Academy in Miami, Florida and the 3rd graders of the 105th Primary School in Thessaloniki being inspired by the relevant unit from the English book which is taught at the 3rd grade in the Greek schools, worked on Aesop’s fable “The ant and the cricket”.

The target was to involve the students both physically and emotionally, to help them discover the moral behind the story and by using their imagination to give different endings to the story.

This gave them a motive to practice and to improve the language more. During the project the students also developed art and drama skills as well as their ability to co-operate with their classmates enhancing, thus, their team spirit. They had role-playing activities and turned their stories into movies.

The students had a Skype meeting at school with the Greek school on Wednesday morning (6/5) at 8 am (3pm in Greece).

This project was approved by the e-twinning committee?and displayed on the e-twinning platform.

E-Twinning is a European learning and teaching community that promotes school cooperation in Europe through the use of Information and Communication Technologies (ICT). It provides tips, ideas and tools for teachers to enrich and facilitate their teaching while students learn collaboratively, share their knowledge and exchange views with friends from other countries.

In the implementation of this program, the contribution of the parents and especially the contribution of the teacher and mother Drymona Nikoleta was very important.
