8:00 a.m. – 10:00 a.m. Adventures in Reading- Class 1101 (Debrell Miggins)

Join us as we set off on a new adventure each day to explore the fabulous, joyful magic of books. We’ll search for treasure with Edward and the Pirates, become friends with a crocodilian when we meet Carlos and the Librarian, and we'll be on the look-out for a Tyrannosaurus rex as we explore with Miss Smith Reads Again. Take part in engaging activities that will strengthen language and reading skills as we embark on learning adventures galore.

10:15 a.m. – 12:15 p.m. Sketch It! Design It! Draw It! - Class 1102 (Debrell Miggins)

Join the fun as we sketch, draw, and design our way through a week of STEM activities. We will explore the science of sound, and drum up STEM challenges. We’ll experiment with popsicle sticks to construct geometric shapes to find out which designs work best. Plus we will use pattern block logic puzzles to stimulate our mathematical thought processes. This class will allow students to develop critical thinking skills and have a STEMtastic time as they do it!

1:30 p.m. – 3:30 p.m. Bugs, Bugs, Bugs - Class 1103 (Christy Gardner)

Looking for all Entomologists! Do you like creepy, crawly insects? We will study how these creatures move, eat, live, and survive. Each day we will take a closer look at different species. We will learn about ants, bees, roly polies, caterpillars, and grasshoppers, and create art projects, go on bug hunts, and act like bugs. Let’s “bug out” together on our journey to study insects that can be found all around us.
