Wednesdays 

9:00 – 10:00

TARGET: Grades 1-5.

COURSE DURATION: 1 year (two, 14 week semesters – classes begin Sept 18, 2019)

COST PER SEMESTER  (ALL materials provided):

$250 for private pay homeschool families.

$275 for iLead, Epic, Aveson,  Inspire, Sage Oak, Sky Mountain, Summit, Valiant Prep and Excel Academy Charter students. If you don’t see your school listed, please contact us at WeSparkLearning@yahoo.com so we can apply to become a vendor for you.

 

Students become “neighbors” in a crazy Town they help create, where they will experience many events through the year including festivals, natural disasters, community events, unbelievable mishaps and some silly celebrations!  As each town event effects the residents, it will serve as the journal prompt for a creative writing assignment for the week.

 

“For Adopt-a-pet day I chose a…”

“When I ran the charity marathon, I couldn’t believe it when…”

“A meteor crashed into the town square today, and I was so…”

 

Town residents will start by deciding what to name their town and decorating their own home and property. Each student will choose a job that will produce weekly earnings. They can use their income to save and upgrade their home, or enhance their property with decorative and fun items from the marketplace (trampoline, gazebo, bird bath, backyard mini golf, and much more!).  Town residents will talk about and compare stories about the events of the week.  Some drawing, crafts, prize games, and other creative expressions will also be incorporated throughout the year.

 

While the class will have some mini lessons on writing techniques, literary devices, figurative language, and poetry, our focus is not on the formal fundamentals of writing.  The main goal of this class is to motivate kids to put pen to paper to write with enthusiasm and express their ideas in written form.  Journal writing is done during class time, and journal expectations can be varied to adapt to different learning levels and abilities.

 ARMCHAIR ADVENTURES

by Brenda Vanderloo

ARMCHAIR ADVENTURES Literature Classes 

Exploring the world through great authors!

ARMCHAIR ADVENTURES are Literature Classes dedicated to reading and discussing literature. We read 2 books a month spending two weeks on each book. The kids read half of the book for the first class and then they complete the book for the second week. Each class we will have an informal yet informative discussion about the book and play fun literary games like Literature Jeopardy.  The main objectives are to create a desire for your child/teen to enjoy great literature, learn how to deepen their understanding of what they are reading, and get comfortable discussing their ideas and opinions in a group setting. They will be learning how to analyze literature in a supportive and fun environment. We will be discussing characters, protagonist/antagonist, plots, setting, themes, genre, point of view narration, conflicts, literary devices like simile, personification, alliteration, metaphor, etc., and vocabulary.
ARMCHAIR ADVENTURES is predominantly a literature discussion class, but your child/teen will also be doing worksheets on literary devices, character development, vocabulary and literature analysis.

TALKING ADVENTURES

The Only Thing We Have to Fear is Fear Itself . . . . . and Public Speaking!!!

TALKING ADVENTURES

Taught by Brenda Van Derloo

Wednesdays

 3:15 – 4:15

Join us for Public Speaking in a Fun & Supportive Environment!  This will be a fun speech class.
Glossophobia, or fear of public speaking, is the most common phobia. Bring on the heights, spiders, small spaces, and death — just keep the speeches away. As Jerry Seinfeld so aptly put it, “If you go to a funeral, you’re better off in the casket than doing the eulogy.”
Public speaking is an important life skill, useful in everything from a job interview to delivering a punch line. The style, setting, and size of the audience may change, but it still comes down to a single speaker commanding attention. Speaking in front of a class can be just as intimidating for kids as it is for adults! So many children grow up with this fear of public speaking. They don’t want to get up in front of a crowd because they are scared of speaking in public. If we get them up practicing (and enjoying) public speaking and build up their confidence as a public speaker, then as they grow, they will be confident in public speaking.  It is an important life skill to develop.
We want to make it fun for our children and if we take the emphasis away from public speaking and move it more towards to having fun then kids are less likely to be afraid of it. So, instead of calling this class Public Speaking or Speech, I am calling it TALKING ADVENTURES. They will play games and do activities that will not be graded to eliminate the fear of failing at something. The purpose of this class is to help children become more confident and help them grow in their skills as public speakers and presenters. My goal is to help your child become more comfortable talking in front of people.  To do this, we will do fun exercises in class. The kids will work in pairs, in small groups and finally in front of the whole class. These public speaking activities will help them become better communicators while having fun at the same time.
Cost for TALKING ADVENTURES: 
1) By Semester: $154 – Class fees are due the 1st class of the semester. No refunds will be given for missed classes.

IEW WRITING CLASSES

Mondays

9:00 – 10:00

Class begins September 9, 2019

In this Ancient History-Based Writing Lessons Themed course, students will survey the civilizations of Sumer, Egypt, Israel, Babylon, Greece, Rome, Asia Minor, and Asia—the people’s ideas, traditions, systems of government, feats, and skills. IEW’s structural units and elements of style are introduced gradually.

 During the course, students will take notes, summarize narrative stories, write from pictures, compose creative essays, and more. Additionally, with the activities, games, and parties, there will be enough silliness and fun to keep the atmosphere light while students learn.

 The goal of the course is NOT to receive a good grade or compare one student to another. The goal is to develop a love for and interest in writing. We are looking for progress. With realistic expectations, progress is determined by comparing a child’s writing in September to his/her own writing in January and in June.

COST: $200.00 per semester ($225 if a charter student) plus books, etc.  Plus, a one-time non-refundable registration fee of $25, which is waived for students whose paid tuition and registration are postmarked before August 1.
