We are so excited to for Session 5! Here are the highlights with details posted below.
Life Skills Class
Choice between: Rhythmic Dance or Service Projects
Pinewood Derby: All students will make a pinewood derby car to race during the final week in our Discovery Day pinewood derby. Students will choose between a couple of options of pre-cut pinewood derby wood bases and then will customize cars from there. VOLUNTEERS NEEDED. We need volunteers with power tools to cut out base shapes before the session begins. We will also need volunteers to help with extra hands in creating these cars.
Life Skills: In this class students will be learning about and practicing life skills such as laundry, cleaning, organizing, repairing clothes, etc.
Attendees on Monday-Wednesday must choose one of the following. On Thursday we will only offer Rhythmic Dance.
Rhythmic Dance: This class will introduce students to three different but related types of dance, tap, step and stomp. All three styles are about creating unity through rhythms. They originate from an effort to communicate with community without using words and have been integrated into pop culture over time.
Tap- traditionally performed with tap shoes (wood or metal plates on the bottom) dancers move their feet to create sounds and rhythms. (No tap shoes required for this class)
Stepping- no special shoes required. Incorporates clapping and drill team like moves.
Stomp- creating rhythms, sounds and music with the body and ordinary objects (from pens to garbage cans).
Service Projects: In this class we will have the students create items to donate. Projects will be age appropriate. The majority of students will be involved in our main project which is loom knitting hats. If your students already know how to loom knit, wonderful, we will put them to work. For those that don’t know how to loom knit, no problem, we will teach you. Students may also be involved in creating Valentine’s for senior citizens, decorating placemats for Meals on Wheels, making fleece blankets, etc. VOLUNTEERS NEEDED. We will need volunteers to be extra hands in helping students with the projects. If you are available please indicate on the sign up.
Donations of fleece and yarn will be accepted for this session. If you would like to donate please contact firstname.lastname@example.org ASAP.
