Before Five In A Row Class (3yrs-K)

Instructor: Dr. Jennifer Choate

Email:  jenjen712@msn.com

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

Required Text/Supplies: There are no required supplies for this class. 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.

We will spend more than one week per book in order to get the most out of each new story while using a wide range of activities designed to accompany that story.  The hope is that your child will fall in love with reading books and carry that love forward into their educational journey.  Topics/ideas covered: Talking and Listening, Hand Games, Music and Dancing, Drama, Large Motor Skills, Small Motor Skills, Art, and Math.  The book list will come primarily from the Before-Five-in-a-Row curriculum but we may be supplementing with other meaningful age appropriate stories to bring variety to each year for returning students.

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: Tiny Tumblers Class (3 years-K)

Instructor: Kelly Fredericks

Email: mkfredericks88@gmail.com

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

Material Fee: $15 per year

Required Text/Supplies: Not Applicable

Pre-Requisites:  None

 

Description: This course is designed to allow younger children to learn to participate in a classroom environment through group activities, listening games and “station rotation.” Stations include exercises to develop gross motor skills, balance, strength and flexibility. During the station rotation period of class, students are encouraged to participate at all stations, but are able to move about freely to participate in activates of interest. The classroom environment is relaxed without excessive restrictions on movement and vocalizing and is a shorter class period (45 minutes) to accommodate the attention span of younger students. Parents are always welcome and are encouraged to participate in class along with their children; however this is not a requirement. 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.

Music in Motion Class (3 yrs-K)

Instuctor: Annie Venable

Email: annieven@earthlink.net

Phone: 321-917-0733

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

Material Fee: $15/semester

Required Text/Supplies: None

Pre-Requisites: If the maturity isn't quite there at three years old, the parent can stay for the first few classes to see if the class is a good fit.

Description:  Students will have fun making a “joyful noise” while being introduced to the concepts of pitch, rhythm, and dynamics.   We will consistently utilize items such as rhythm instruments, ribbon sticks, scarves, bean bags, a parachute, and hand bells.  In addition to learning traditional children’s songs, music will be used as a medium to help the little ones hide God’s word in their hearts.  I especially enjoy teaching Bible verses and other concepts (colors of the rainbow, names of the planets, etc.) through songs. Active preschoolers will be kept engaged not only through music and motion, but also by the construction of several simple musical crafts.   Students will have the opportunity to perform in casual settings and we may even participate in singing Christmas carols or other songs at a nursing home; however, this class is non-performance based so performing in public is never “required”.  Parents will be provided with a CD or links to the music that we are learning so the children can enjoy the songs at home.  The Materials fee is $15.00/semester and will be used to purchase music, classroom supplies, and craft supplies.  I look forward to a great year making music together!

 

The theme of our class is “Sing and make music in your heart to the Lord!” (Eph. 5:19)
