STEAM - Science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) subjects are the focal point of popular integrated learning systems. However, many are calling out for the “A” in “arts” to turn STEM into STEAM. At My Village Learning Center, we believe Art is an integral component of STEM as it requires creativity during such processes as design engineering, science experimentation or creating prototypes in technology. This STEAM class will include a variety of hands-on activities that involve cooperative group project-based learning with a variety of materials.
PHYSICAL EDUCATION (PE) - Students will use a variety of equipment to promote physical wellness and psychomotor skills. There will be an emphasis on group collaboration. Students will learn to function as a team through group games and challenges.
MUSIC - This class introduces students to the rudiments of music through oral, aural and written practice utilizing rhythm, melody, intervals, scales, chords and musical notation. This class is designed for beginners or for students who need extra practice and repetition at a beginner's level. Students will learn the history and theory of music and apply those theories and practice on piano, ukulele, xylophone, Boomwhackers procession instruments, tambourines, maracas, hand bells and drums.
SCULPTURE - Students will learn about, explore and use the elements of art - line, shape, form, tone, texture, pattern, color and composition - to create three-dimensional artwork in this class.
TEAM BUILDING - During team building, students will work on many important skills like teamwork, communication, strategy, brainstorming, attitude and self-sacrifice, just to name a few. They will play games and be given challenges like The Perfect Square, The Barter Puzzle, Blind Drawing, This is Better Than That, The Hula Hoop Relay, Hello My Name Is and various other activities that are sure to bring laughter!
SCIENCE EXPERIMENTS - Each week students are challenged to work through the scientific method to explore concepts that explain the world around them. They will find out if color effects taste and what materials can capture bubbles. Students will explore solar power and why a sailboat stays afloat, among many other activities!
