SENSORY STORYTELLING: WINTER WONDERLAND
Pre-K (Ages 3-4)
1:00 – 1:45 p.m.
Winter time is here again! In this class, students explore how to use props and their actor’s tools of body, voice, mind, and imagination to bring a story to life. Using creative movement, role play, visual arts, and simple sensory props students actively explore concepts including winter animals, hibernation, and playing in the snow through classic stories such as The Snowy Day, The Mitten, and Bear Snores On. So grab your warmest sweater and join us for some snowy adventures!
1:00 – 2:00 p.m.
Music is math! In this course, we explore a new mathematical concept each week through instrument play, rhythm games, songs, and more. While learning foundational music skills such as steady beat, tempo, and rhythm, students simultaneously build on essential math skills like patterns, sequencing, and counting. It’s never been more fun to practice math, so come join us and become a mathematician musician!
IMAGINATION INVESTIGATION: PLANTS & POLLINATION
1:00 – 2:30 p.m.
This class uses creative drama to build students’ understanding of how animals and the environment play key roles in the life cycle of a plant. Using Next Generation Science Standards, this immersive experience helps build comprehension in key science concepts such as pollination and seed dispersal through roleplay, tableaux, improvisation, visual arts, and movement. The class culminates with students creating an original story centered on topics they’ve explored in class together and staging it on Zoom for an online audience of family and friends!
FIRST AMENDMENT THEATRE
1:00 – 3:00 p.m.
Inspired by the importance of a free and fair press, this course uses the core tenets of the First Amendment and devised theatre techniques to create an original piece showcasing the voices and interests of the ensemble. Students learn to give constructive feedback, craft stories with strong structure and conflicts, and work as collaborators with their fellow classmates. Through a focus on narrative writing, students use journaling, creative writing prompts, and fun drama and roleplay activities to work towards a showcase of their work staged on Zoom and shared for families and friends on the final class day.
