Easy Grammar Level 2 or Level 1
Students learn grammar faster and easier when they're actually writing and editing texts; this hands-on approach to grammar is just one of the reasons why Easy Grammar is so successful. Utilizing the prepositional approach, students memorize prepositions to then eliminate from sentences, making finding the noun and verb much easier. Concepts are reviewed and introduced throughout the school year; this, accompanied with reviews helps to ensure engaged, mastery learning for all elementary aged children.
This is an optional class that will take place from 2:00-3:00.
The children will alternate between Fine Arts in a classroom and PE in the gym. Fine Arts will focus on exploring Art, Music and Chorus. PE will explore engaging, fun, organized games, sports, and activities.
