* Guitar I
Teacher: Sheldon Clark
This class will take the younger students from basic sight reading and notes to playing a song. Starting on the 1st string on week one, string 2 on week two....continuing this pattern until week six on the 6th string. Next we will learn chords and progressions leading up to full songs. The primary goal of this class is to teach each student proper playing through proper practice and the joy of music achieved by reaching smaller goals (wins) and ultimately bigger goals (playing a full song).

* Special Help with Reading
Teacher: Tiffani Scott
This class is for the kiddo who is struggling with reading. We will use different methods as well as reading from different kinds of things. We go over mechanics as well as trying to pinpoint what the struggle is.
This class is adaptive, meaning I will adjust as we go, and I learn their learning style and levels. There is no curriculum to purchase but I do ask for a $20 supply fee.
This class will work well for kiddos on the spectrum, who maybe do not write well or do well in structured settings. I do not allow ANY sort of bullying and go over this from day one. In my classes I talk about how we all learn in different levels and ways.

Dancers will start with the fundamentals of classical ballet including, but not limited too, fun exercises at the barre, the middle of the floor, and across the floor.

IEW Level A: No previous writing experience is necessary for this introductory level
writing class! Writing doesn’t have to be boring and burdensome. This class will
introduce students to a method of writing in which they can have immediate success
while providing writing content that is interesting and fun! This introductory writing class
is geared for 3rd-5th grade students using the Institute for Excellence in Writing Teaching:
Structure and Style curriculum. Students will be introduced to a method of writing
based on modeling, imitation, and coaching. Seven structural models will be introduced
to students this year, along with several stylistic techniques that will help to improve
your student’s writing abilities. By using this method of “text reconstruction” students can focus on how to write instead of getting bogged down over what to write. We will be
using IEW’s All Things Fun & Fascinating book along with IEW’s Portable Walls:
Grammar on the Go. (Please note that while all instruction will be done in class, parent
involvement will be necessary at home.)
