In our local homeschool group, we have a great Enrichment Class Program two times a year. It’s a 10 week semester, with classes held on Fridays from 9-2:30. There are classes for kids from age 3 to 12th grade.
By the way, our EC program is celebrating 10 years this month! We are so excited!
So this semester, here’s what we’ll be taking:
Nicholas (age 4):
- Preschool Hour
- Fun With Music
- Let’s Go to Work
- Dinosaurs (taught by Me)
- Wiggle Time
Chloe (age 9):
- Little House Sewing (taught by Me)
- Irish Pennywhistle
- Creative Art Class
- Paddle to the Sea
- Little House on the Prairie
Claudia (age 13)
- Colonials and Indians
- Advanced Flags & Rifles (Color Guard)
- Water Color II (2-hour class)
Little Nathan will be in the nursery, and I will be with him part of that time.
I will be teaching (as mentioned above) Little House Sewing for grades 4-6 and grades 7-8. What’s funny is that the 4th-6th grade group is all girls (which I expected) but the 7th-8th grade group is ALL BOYS! So my carefully crafted plans for sewing sunbonnets and aprons probably won’t go over well there! I’m still working on some pioneer, hand-sewing, boy crafts, so if you’ve got a suggestion, I’m all ears!
What’s not funny is that the Little House Sewing book is out of print! And I don’t own my own copy. (If you’re a loyal reader of my Little House blog, please ignore that last comment.) So if you see one in a used bookstore somewhere, grab it!
I decided to teach Dinosaurs for preschoolers based on my new wealth of dinosaur knowledge, thanks to my 4 year old, Nicholas. He lives and breathes dinosaurs. He can identify waaaaaay more dinosaurs than I ever could. We read about them almost daily. So, what better topic to use in a fun preschool class for about 10 little 3 and 4 year olds? I’ve got some fun ideas in store, so I’ll share them later when I have photos.
