Learning Adventures (8-10 yrs)
Learning Adventures as always will be an adventure in hands-on learning! This year I will be offering one, two, three, or four day options. Each day covering a specific subject area through project based learning and daily work challenges. It is always my goal to teach the “whole child” providing multiple modalities of learning to open the minds of young humans. We will be addressing many third and forth grade state standards while igniting curiosity for learning in a safe and nurturing environment.
Classes are planned for a year of learning and will have the same daily structure with different subject matter.
Mondays: Language Arts Focus.
I will be teaching Excellence in Writing (https://iew.com), cursive, spelling and syllabication rules, the structure of a sentence, the structure a paragraph,and learning the “recipe” for the 5-paragraph essay. This class will include the making and playing of games as students become literate in the above subject matter. A book will be required and homework given
Tuesdays: Science Focus. enrollment closed (waitlist)
