Math: Number Fun
This will include calendar, sorting, patterns, money, time, addition and subtraction with lots of fun hands on games and activities....
Literacy: Adventures In Reading And Writing
Sounds, sight words, rhyming, comprehension, journaling and reading.
Experiments In Science And Sensory
Inspire curiosity, promote understanding while exploring with our 5 senses. We will learn about seasons/weather, life cycles, sounds, electricity all while encouraging hands on experimentation which may include sensory tables.
We will investigate and increase our skills of observation while studying different plants, animals, fossils, reptiles, sea life and much more.
History: Journey Around The World
We will explore and go on a journey of different times in history with books, projects, maps, art, flags, video and dress up
Stephanie Peacock will be offering these outsourced homeschool classes to Grades 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, & 6! We will explore a historical time period, focusing on the Age of Exploration through the French and Indian War during the first semester. We'll learn about history through great picture books. Additionally, there will be optional chapter books that can be read by older students, or as family read-alouds, outside of class.
Everyday, we will work on history, geography, and me...morization. For geography, we will focus mainly on North America. We'll study the same locations all four days of the week, so that no child falls behind if he/she attends only one or two days a week. For memorization, we will learn several of Shakespeare's sonnets and the Declaration of Independence.
We will rotate through other subjects each week.
Mondays, we will have a fun math challenge and do poetry study. I will probably use Michael Rosen's Classic Poetry for my poem selections, and we will read poems by William Shakespeare, William Blake, William Wordsworth, Samuel Taylor Coleridge, Lord Byron, Percy Shelley, John Clarke, John Keats, and Thomas Hood. I might throw in some William Cullen Bryant poems, too.
On Tuesdays, we will include music appreciation. The first half of the semester, we will focus on Baroque music. We'll identify the musical instruments used in the Baroque Era, and enjoy listening to the works of Pachelbel, Vivaldi, Bach, and Handel. The second half of the semester, we will focus on Classical music. We'll identify the musical instruments used in the Classical Era, and enjoy listening to the works of Mozart, Beethoven, and Schubert.
On Wednesdays, we will enjoy artist study. We will look at the works of Vermeer and Gainsborough. We will also spend time making our own art.
On Thursdays, we will enjoy either nature study or crafts. The crafts would be related to the historical time period we are studying.
Classes are structured this in a way to allow students to have a consistent experience whether they attend class one day a week or four days a week.
Students will be given a STEAM challenge to complete in class. The challenges will be different everyday, so a child who attends multiple times a week will never have a repeat.
