* Lego Masters- Stem (Mon Only)
Teacher: Nicole Crandell
Description: It's a little bit STEM, a little bit art, and a whole lot of fun! Students will get to work on a variety of projects, some that last a single week and some that will continue through multiple classes. They will develop skills such as creative problem-solving, communication of ideas, creativity, and working within a team. We will use LEGO to build, to problem-solve, and as a creative means of expression. Projects will allow the students to use the scientific method through observation, reasoning, prediction, engineering, imagination, and critical thinking. But most of all, we will get to play with LEGO together...and have a great time doing it!

* Special Help with Spelling
Teacher: Tiffani Scott
This class is a hands-on class to help with the fundamentals of spelling. We will be using a lot of things beyond writing and repetition to learn and remember spelling words. This class is adaptive, meaning I will adjust as needed as I learn their learning styles and levels. I will be using words on their level. Different kids in the same class may have different words.
This class will work well for kiddos on the spectrum, who maybe don’t 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.

* OERB Fossils 2 Fuel STEAM (Wed Only)
Tutor: Amy Shipman
This STEAM elective curriculum was created by the Oklahoma Energy Resource Board (OERB) and is wonderful enrichment for those who are interested in diving deeper into science and math topics with life application. We will complete a hands-on lesson/experiment every meeting day. Students will come home with optional extensions to complete during the week such as virtual field trips and at-home experiments that can be fun for the whole family. Many of these have the option to post your results on the OERB social media pages for the chance to win prizes.Fossils-2-Fuel is a hands-on science curriculum to help students learn about energy sources, geology, density, matter, porosity and sound waves. The lessons also teach math concepts like measurements, mass and volume, data organization, decimals and fractions. We will team up with Petro Pete, OERB’s energy mascot, and learn how to use a dichotomous key to identify Oklahoma rocks. Students will also use an animated geologic computer model to “look” below the surface of Oklahoma, use viscosity tubes to study flow rate, use ordered pairs and a coordinate grid to locate Petro Pete, and study rocks, crude oil, porosity, pulley systems, cohesion and recycling. But do not be overwhelmed by the sound of all those complicated words. This curriculum simplifies things in a way that makes these concepts easy to learn and apply, even making it FUN!This is a great option if your student struggles with the typical “lecture : solve the problem” methods as we will be doing experiments and applying each of these topics to real-life circumstance during our weekly hands-on lessons. We will also have a petroleum professional visit our classroom during the year. In addition, there will be at least one field trip during the year that is offered outside of Academy hours, but entrance to the chosen field trip location will be free for the student enrolled in this elective class. Join us for some STEAM FUN!
