Acting Up! Musical Theatre Class (1st-3rd)

Instuctor: Annie Venable

Email: annieven@earthlink.net

Phone: 321-917-0733

Tuition: $20 per month ($100 per semester)

Material Fee: $20 per semester; used to pay for music, props, sets, classroom and craft supplies, and possibly publisher/royalty fees.

Required Text/Supplies: Costume components and stage props may be requested

Pre-Requisites: None

Description:    These young students will have fun learning a wide variety of musical concepts as well as basic theatrical components. The fundamentals of music (melody, rhythm, dynamics, steady beat) will be taught and reinforced through games, musical crafts, and hands-on-activities which will frequently utilize rhythm instruments, ribbon sticks, bean bags, parachute, and hand bells.  Fun songs will be incorporated periodically to teach Bible verses and other facts.  We will learn about famous composers and sing a wide variety of Christian and secular music.   (Contemporary Christian songs for a church service and 50’s songs for a nursing home are examples of past performances.)   In addition to music, drama activities and games will also be an integral part of this course. These exercises are designed to reinforce acting skills such as stage presence, vocal projection, improvisation, and choreography.  While this is a performance-based class, there will not be a lot of outside time involved.  My plan is do a simple musical drama (with costumes, set, and props) one semester and put on a short program for a nursing home and/or church service the other semester.  Parents will be provided with either a CD or links to the music that we are learning so that students can enjoy the songs at home.  I am looking forward to a great year making music together!

Five In A Row Class (1st-3rd)

Instructor: Dr. Jennifer Choate

Email:  jenjen712@msn.com

Tuition: $20/month ($100 per semester)

Material Fee: $20 per semester

Required Text/Supplies: There are no required supplies for this class, however you may find it enjoyable to obtain each book (either from the library or by purchasing) and re-read it to your child each day.

Periodically, parents will be asked to bring in items from home to help with the class activity.   For example: student photo, milk/egg carton, bottles, etc.

Pre-Requisites:  none

Description: The idea behind the Five in a Row homeschool curriculum is to engage children in learning a variety of topics in a natural way through great books.  Subjects covered include social studies, art, language arts, science, and math.  The curriculum gets its name because, if taught at home, each of the five topics may be investigated one at a time for five days in a row.  This curriculum lends itself beautifully to a co-op setting.  The stories are truly some of the best children’s literature ever written and each week the students will enjoy having a new classic read to them.  The small group environment provides a great opportunity for them to interact with the story in a fun way through crafts, games, songs, and other hands-on activities.   It’s truly amazing how much information children retain when it’s presented in a contextual setting through literature.  For example, the Yangtze isn’t just a random far off place to memorize when they get older; instead, it’s that familiar river in China where Ping the duck lives!  In addition to learning more about their world, my hope is that children will enjoy the engaging way the books are read along with the fun activities, and it the class will help them develop a strong foundation that will ultimately encourage a lifelong love of reading.

* We will spend a few weeks with each book, rather than doing a new book each week, so that we can really get into the topics and form a relationship and associations with the book

Gymnastics: Beginning Class (1st-6th)

Email: mkfredericks88@gmail.com

Tuition: $20/month or $100 per semester

Material Fee: $15 per year

Required Text/Supplies: Not Applicable

Pre-Requisites:  None

 

Description: This course is designed to allow children of all skill levels to participate in a classroom environment without excessive restrictions on movement and vocalizing. Each class period begins with a musical cardio warm up, followed by stretching exercises or group activities. Students then move to a station rotation course which includes four main events—bar, beam, trampoline and tumbling, as well as side stations to help develop gross motor skill, balance, strength and flexibility. Students may choose which stations to participate in, and are encouraged to participate at each station.  Each student’s individual skill level and learning style is embraced and success at all levels of progression is celebrated. Our goal is the development of gross motor skills, strength, flexibility, and to help build self-confidence, coordination, self-discipline, and body awareness.

During the class period, we play listening games, which help to develop listening skills and the ability to follow oral instruction. We also work with students to promote good classroom behavior, such as taking turns, class participation, showing self-restraint and respecting the personal space of other students. Students are also encouraged to use words rather than actions to communicate with classmates.  Each class closes with a cool down exercise and ”line up,” which allows students the opportunity to share with the class the skill they are most proud of.
