Handwriting Without Tears - Handwriting Fluency & Readiness Program

Handwriting fluency is fundamental to learning, because children think and write at the same time. Good handwriting habits foster student success. The readiness and writing lessons of Handwriting Without Tears teach body awareness, cooperation, taking turns, listening, crayon grip, drawing, building, letter and number recognition, and capital letter and number formation.

Journal Creative Writing

In Journal, students practice creative writing and progress at their own pace. Without such a program, students often lose story ideas because they are unable to write words. At this age, many thoughts and stories stem from pictures. During Journal, students draw pictures of their story on the top of the page and use temporary spelling to write the story at the bottom of the page. Students listen to the words and write the words or the letters that correspond to the sounds. Additional concepts are taught as students make progress.

Kindermusic - Language and Literacy Program through Music

Created for the child enrolled in a pre-K program, ABC Music & Me is a research-based language and early literacy program built around music. This class helps children develop pre-literacy and language skills through a child’s favorite rituals: music and story time.

Students will experience the following in class:

-> Songs and rhymes that develop phonetic awareness and early reading skills
-> Tapping, clacking, and ringing rhythm instruments in time with music to improve hand-eye coordination
-> Focused listening with music to improve skills in following directions
-> Instrument play to strengthen fine motor skills
-> Developmentally-appropriate songs to develop vocal chords and expressive speech
-> Learning that emphasizes storytelling, imaginative play, and taking turns.

Lego Education - Early Simple Machines Program

With Lego Education solutions, science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) are brought to life and students learn, create, and innovate in truly hands-on projects. Using the Lego Early Simple Machines Set, young students build fun and simple models such as a seesaw, rolling vehicle, spinning top, raft, and many more. By playing with and manipulating the models, students learn about pulleys, levers, gears, and wheels and axles while exploring energy, buoyancy, and balance. These projects allow students to think creatively and learn real problem-solving skills.

Music Program

The FAA music program is designed to help students appreciate music through performance. Learned techniques in the K-2nd vocal choir include: melody, rhythm, tempo, steady and syncopated beats, call and response, diction, pitch and direction, and members of the orchestra families. In addition, students in the grades 3rd-10th vocal choir also learn harmony, expression and dynamics, descants, cords, counter melody, and hymnology. Optional instruction is available in guitar and English handbells.

Physical Education

Physical activity is not only important to brain development but also for physical well-being and a healthy lifestyle. Daily opportunities are provided for students to improve their large motor skills and coordination in both organized fitness activities and free play.

Soccer

Soccer is played outside. In the event of inclement weather, soccer will be cancelled, and you will be notified via Ren-Web and the One Call Phone Notification system. Players need to wear shorts, t-shirt, soccer cleats, and shin guards. Ideally, each player should have their own size 3 soccer ball, the proper size for children under age 8.

Practice Times: Tuesdays, 3:45-4:30pm
