Please send two snacks, plenty of water and lunch with your child!
HANDICRAFTS- Handicrafts are any projects made with the hands and/or simple tools. In this class, children use a variety of materials and supplies in many ways to create their own unique creations. Examples include sewing, duct tape creations, calligraphy, chalk drawing, wool felting, rubber stamping, weaving, bead work, decoupage, woodwork, jewelry, handknitting, home décor and seasonal artistry.
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.
STORY ART- After listening to a treasured read-aloud, children will be inspired to create a masterpiece of their own! Various media and techniques will be used in class. Examples include creating chalk art after listening to Stopping by the Woods on a Snowy Evening by Robert Frost and creating a turtle from airdry clay after listening to I'll Follow the Moon by Stephanie Lisa Tara.
SPORTS - Students will be up and moving while learning the techniques of various sports. Among many others, they will have opportunities to practice their dribbling and shooting skills, their set and spike finesse, their wiffleball and kickball might and mini-golf talents as well.
CERAMICS - In this class, your child will learn how to make a pot on the pottery wheel as well as hand build with clay. The clay used on the pottery wheel is earthenware clay that can be fired in a kiln and the clay used during hand-building is air-dry children's clay. The earthenware will be a forever keepsake that is functional as dinnerware and can even be put into the dishwasher. Viable pots can be taken home that same day and will include instructions on where to take them to be fired in a kiln. We recommend local studios in PSL and Stuart. (These studios have their own fees for completing your project.)
