5th-6th Grade

Star Child is excited to now be offering a 5th and 6th grade half day program on Tuesday and Thursday afternoon.  Mr. Bobby and Ms. Hope had the honor of working together in the past at a fully outdoor program with 7th and 8th grade students.  They are grateful to be able to share in another similar experience with the 5th and 6th grade students.  They plan to bring an environmental component to the class as they intertwine art and internal reflection.  Knowing that the 5th and 6th grade years can be full of external pressure and complex emotions and thoughts and in this time of technological revolution, they believe it is extremely important to bring children back to nature.  There are lessons that only the icicles, trees and wind can teach us.  As the class develops a greater understanding and appreciation for nature, the children will learn to dive deeper inward and will learn to use nature as a healing space.  The classroom will be student centered and activities will be based around the children's interests.  Together they will foster an educational experience amongst the forest, building with real tools, creating art with natural materials, identifying trees and fungus and reflecting upon nature's lessons.  Hope and Bobby look forward to meeting your children and providing for them a positive outdoor experience that they can take with them throughout their educational and personal lives
