1st - 3rd Grades
L.E.A.P. – Learning Enrichment Activities Program
Instructors: Stacey Elliott
Day/Time: Thursday 10:30-12:25
The goal of L.E.A.P. is not to teach your child how to read or how to add but rather to encourage them to love reading, to see math, to use science and to explore history. These ages are very impressionable, and we believe that you, as the parent, know the heart of your child and know what that child is ready for academically. This class will expose them to wonderful books and show how those books relate to the world around them through reading, hands-on activities, arts and crafts and, most of all, fun!
H.O.P. – Hands-On Phonics
Instructor: Stacey Elliott
Day/Time: Thursday 8:30-10:25
H.O.P. is an interactive phonics class that will help parents teach their new or struggling learners. The success of your student’s reading ability will depend on parent participation and student’s learning abilities, keeping in mind that each student has their own unique learning style and pace. The goal is to encourage students to love learning and not be discouraged with the process of phonics. Using All About Reading and All About Spelling as a core to this class, we will focus on identifying letters, consonant sounds, vowel sounds, and blends. Students will approach learning through games, word building, music, muscle memory, arts, crafts and worksheets. So, HOP on over and see what Hands On Phonics is about!
