Don’t worry, we have the perfect antidote. Our Spring Enrichment Clubs! These programs are specifically designed to engage students in learning. We create opportunities for students to see the value in literacy and connect it to their interests. A student in our upcoming Mars Explorer Club at the Kindergarten through 5th grade levels can expect to practice their reading, writing, thinking, speaking and listening skills by designing a plan to colonize mars! They will research the geology of Mars and the planet’s atmosphere using traditional texts and IPADS. They will work with professional writers in the valley to explore how to put their thoughts down on paper and they will complete engineering and science projects to help them explore and apply the knowledge they’ve gained.
If your child cannot attend one of our enrichment clubs there are plenty of opportunities to involve your children in learning outside of school and afterschool programs. Study gravity through traditional and online texts and then take a ride on the Mountain Coaster at Snow King Mountain Resort and discuss how the theory of gravity is put into practice. For additional benefits, try to design your own gravity based ride!
If you have children under the age of five, try sensory play indoors and out. Learn about your five senses as a family using traditional texts or online apps. Check out a few “touch and feel” books from the library. Explore the inside of your home using your senses. What does it smell like? Then take a walk into your backyard or the local park and explore. Compare the two settings.
By providing our students and children opportunities to read and then apply and explore the concepts they read about, we allow them to see the value of reading and learning. When students understand the value of learning they are more apt to “push through the spring slump” and finish the school year strong!
