Fruzen Before & After School Program (run by the teachers of the Fruzen Building):
SOARING FALCONS CLC PROGRAM is offering exciting new classes.
On Mondays and Wednesdays beginning October 9 all students will rotate through these offerings each night:
1. Let's Build It!" Engineering
This STEM class takes a hands-on approach, allowing students to directly engage with basic engineering concepts through a variety of fun and educational activities. Students will improve their problem solving, math, and physics skills - all while engaging in exciting building projects.
2. Wonder Novel Unit
"When given the choice between being right or kind, choose kind." The lessons taught in this novel (anti-bullying, friendship, acceptance, peer pressure, kindness) are so valuable. While our students read the novel, they will be exploring literary concepts including point of view, character development, figurative language, setting, plot, mood and tone. They will also practice analyzing literature, making predictions and supporting their thoughts with evidence from the text. At the conclusion of the unit, students who have participated in this class will be invited to see the movie Wonder.
Tuesdays and Thursdays students will rotate through the following classes:
Join us for this fun, real-world outdoor treasure hunting game using GPS-enables devices. Students learn about latitude and longitude and are given a specific set of GPS coordinates and then attempt to find the geocache hidden at that location.
2. All Things Fall
As students learn about why leaves change colors, they will engage in some hands-on science and math activities. Then we will move on to pumpkin facts, where we will explore pumpkin science and do some pumpkin math and writing. Students who participate in this class will be invited to a field trip at Skelly's Farm.
