Elementary 2019-2020

Elementary students (Nursery through 6th grade) meet on Mondays from 8:50 am-2:30 pm. Students enroll in the entire day of classes, as classes for the elementary program are not offered a la carte.

Each week, elementary students meet in combined classes of approximately 12-14 students (age groups detailed below) for Science, History, Book Club, Art/PE and Choir.

Use these classes as Enrichment Courses OR as part of your at-home lessons. At the elementary level, Monday classes are a wonderful and hands-on enrichment class. Students are not required to purchase the accompanying text book or follow the curriculum at home (**with the exception of IEW for 4th/5th graders-see below for more info). 

At Home for 2nd-6th: Weekly assignment sheets with daily lesson plans will be provided for Science and History as a resource should you wish to use the curriculum at home. Add these to your Language Arts and Math at home, and you have a full year’s worth of learning!

History  Last year we covered American history from Columbus to the Civil War. This year we will continue the story of America using America’s Story Volume 2, which is full of colorful illustrations and engaging stories. It includes the story of the world from the Civil War to the Industrial Revolution. Students will discover key moments and interesting traditions of America’s history. This will be paired with biographies of people of the time and projects related to what is being learned.

Book Club  Students will read a short story and discuss the plot, characters, setting. They will summarize the story in their own words, learn how to write a book report as well as re-write the story or put on a play.

Choir Choir will be a balanced course of singing melody and harmony with expression.  It will include reading music, rhythm, form, vocal skills, innovation, historical and cultural context, terminology, analyzing and describing music. There will be two performance opportunities- a Christmas program and End of year program.

PE/Art (Alternating Weeks) On Art week, students will study different techniques and will explore using different medias to create their own art.
