Class Descriptions for Friday Enrichment Spring 2020

Mixed Media ART

Students will create their own masterpieces while experimenting with art principles and elements alongside learning the history and culture of many famous artists. Various mediums will be used to create works of art such as, but not limited to, clay, paint, plaster, stencils, papier-mâché, watercolors, and oil pastels. 

Writing & Reading Fun
Students at all levels will greatly enjoy reading high-interest, age appropriate materials as they create their own unique stories, poetry, fiction and non-fiction writings. They will learn the writing process, story elements, and improve their reading and writing skills at all levels. Students will play a variety of creative games and activities to enhance their reading and writing understandings. For K-2nd grade students, hands-on activities will be based on fun with phonic skills, poetry, creative writing, and nonfictional writings. Students in grades 3rd-6th students’ activities will include word analysis, literary devices, poems, short stories, and creative and nonfiction writing.
Fitness Fun and Unplugged Gaming
Students will have super active fun- moving, stretching, mastering self-made obstacle courses and circuit routines, playing organized (non-electronic) games, and even learning some yoga and dance moves.  This class helps build cooperation, teamwork, and sportsmanship.
Fun French

Using songs, crafts, games, reading, writing, listening, speaking, and other fun activities French students will explore the 5 C’s of foreign language education: Communication, Culture, Connections, Comparisons, and Community. Students will learn basic phrases, vocabulary, and conversational French.

Learning History with American Girl Dolls-

Encouraged by a love for American girl dolls, students will learn American history and culture. They will do fun activities, games, crafts, and even some cooking all related to their learning about lives and times of the American Girl dolls. Families are encouraged to read along the American Girl books at home (not provided.) Second semester we will learn about the lives and historical context of Josefina (1824), Marie-Grace, Celine Ray, Kirsten Larson (1850’s), Addy (1864), and Samantha (1904). 

Lego Challenge Builds and Robotics-

Brick lovers will use Legos, Lego Software, and Lego Movie Making to design and build their own creations and make them come life with sound and motion. Some of our projects include a remote-controlled rover, boats with a motion sensory operated drawbridge, and racecars with an automated finish line. Students will be challenged to build catapults that shoot marshmallows, ziplines for their minifigures, marble mazes, bridges, towers, 

and more!

STEAM

Students will learn new skills and principles while engaging in age appropriate, hands-on activities to implement Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, and Mathematic fundamentals. While having fun, students will be enhancing their creative thinking, problem solving, and team building skills. Some examples of activities are learning about buoyancy by building boats, making greenhouses to learn about photosynthesis and observe seed growth, and creating solar ovens to learn about alternative forms of energy. Most activities are from the AIMS Center for Math and Science Education. See Aimsedu.org.

Project Based Learning-

Students will learn new skills as they engage in active exploration, critical thinking, collaboration, communication, research, and problem solving while completing real world tasks such as designing board games, helping with charity drives, creating brochures and posters, producing videos or plays, and conducting interviews. Topics will be determined by the interest of the students.
