EC Stanton's School for Witchcraft and Wizardry
Upper Elementary through Middle School Level
*All ages are welcome! Younger students just need to be capable of reading the books on their own, older students (high school level) who are interested must be comfortable in a mixed-age group.
Tuesday/Thursday from 1:30-2:30
We will be using J.K. Rowling's Wizarding World as a lens through which to view multiple content areas. As we (re)read our way through the classic series and supplemental texts, we will study science, literature, philosophy, math, mythology, sports, cooking, and more in monthly mini-units. Students will need to have access to the books in the Wizarding World Universe. These could be electronic, borrowed from the library, or their own copies. We will NOT make it through the entire series the first semester. Parents will have advance notice when new texts are needed. We will start with The Sorcerer’s Stone.
Introduction to the World’s Ocean
High School Level
Tuesday/Thursday from 9:00-10:0
In this course, students will be introduced to the basic physical characteristics of the world’s ocean and the life living within them. Each in-school lesson will focus on hands-on, experiential labs to teach content and specific science skills. Outside readings and activities will be offered for students who want to delve further. Supplies and materials will be provided for in-school labs and activities, including dissections.
Music Lessons (piano or flute)
Time TBD based on availability
These are designed as piano and flute lessons for beginners. Topics include basic note reading, musical notation, basic music theory, and introduction to how to play the instrument. It is a good setting for current EC Stanton students who want to assess their interest in either of these instruments. Instructor does not have formal music education training but years of playing both from elementary school into adulthood. Separate books based on skill level will need to be purchased.
Nature and Sensory Play
Tuesday from 10:30-11:30
Explore nature with hands-on activities that bring many subjects together for a holistic experience. Respecting nature, and being part of our Earth, shows children the importance of love for our planet. Engaging in new experiences and connecting with Mother Nature and natural phenomena is an important part of child development. Students will be expected to get wet, dirty, sometimes sweaty, and be prepared have fun!
Late Elementary/Middle School Level
Tuesday/Thursday from 12:00-1:00
The goal of this class is to teach students to think like a scientist. Students will focus on large science concepts such as how scientists understand the world, the scientific method, and the foundations needed for biology, physics, and chemistry. All sessions will include hands-on activities and discussions.
Thursday from 10:30-11:30
Each class will start with the reading of a children’s story. Students will then be given the opportunity to display their own creativity through a related craft or activity that goes along with the reading. This hour gives students exposure to new stories, time with friends, and projects to expand their creativity.
