Writer’s Workshop (K-2 & 3-6)
Are you interested in becoming a better writer? Do you enjoy making your own books? Do you enjoy telling great stories and putting them on paper? Then writer’s workshop is for you! During our summer session, students will learn how to write using the writing process of brainstorming, prewriting, drafting, revising, editing, sharing and publishing their writing. Students will write from their own experiences or using literature that will spark great ideas! Students will be a part of a community of writers where students not only share ideas but help one another. Teachers will use rich literature that follows the same experiences and genres that the student will be writing. Students will collect their work in a writer’s notebook that they will get to design and make individual and unique to inspire ideas. Each week students will publish and share their writing through celebrations. Students will choose and plan their writer celebrations. Come celebrate a writerly community during writer’s workshop!
As we perform Science experiments related to water pressure, air, weather, and gravity, we will also work Math problems into each lesson and study how things change when we add more of something or adjust something. Students will apply many principles with “hands- on” projects that also encourage recycling. Many of the experiments will use daily things that are found around the house to keep the cost down.
Math Explorers (1-2)
Put on your safari hat and come explore math with us! We will use literature, manipulatives, music, and student created art work to explore math concepts. Addition, subtraction, geometry, patterning, multiplication, division, problem solving, telling time, money, and fractions are all concepts we will explore in interesting new ways.
