Winter Class Descriptions:
5 in a Row (ages 4-8) – “The goal of our instruction is to lead children to fall in love with good books and to embrace the joy of learning.” – FIAR. Following the well-loved program by Julie Claire Lambert, students will gather to hear one book each week. As a class, they will complete a hands-on activity corresponding to the story of the day. At the end of each lesson, the student will be provided a list of other enrichment activities that can be completed at home.
Art (ages 5-10) – “Every child is an artist.” – Pablo Picasso. Each child will learn to express themselves using different mediums from acrylics to clay to felt. They will also learn about a different artist each week, practicing some of the techniques that were unique to that artist. Students will create a unique art project to take home after each class.
American Sign Language (ASL) (all ages) – In this ASL class, children come home excited to showcase their new skills in translating basic conversation and fun songs. Children will be learning American Sign Language phrases, mannerisms, and conversation starters.

After sampling their creations, they will go home with recipes and leftovers.
JR. Builders (ages 4-10) – Does your child love to build? Come learn some basic engineering techniques to put that imagination to use! Students will work in teams to build with a variety of LEGOs, learning how to create the tallest tower and strongest walls. Together, the will dream, design, and build creations that will impress everyone!
LEGO Robotics Mindstorm Madness (ages 5-15) – Discover, create, build, and program! Participants will work together to build and program a robot that can move, spin, grab, and talk.

NOTE: This class is 90 minutes.
Outdoor Adventures (ages 6-12) – “Nature is a tool to get children to experience not just the wider world, but themselves.” – Stephen Moss. In this class, students will learn the basics to have their own camping adventure including multiple ways to build a campfire, pitch a tent, tie useful knots and cook a meal outdoors.
