Adventures in Editing

This class will combine acting, directing, videography, editing, costuming, etc, in a class called “Adventures in Editing” — we are borrowing the class name from the YouTube videos that inspired it …. and from our favorite radio drama, Adventures in Odyssey.  Students will work together in small groups to create and publish short 5 minute videos.  Access to a laptop with video editing software will be required for each small group.  Not all students will need laptops or video capturing devices, but they are necessary for each group to function.  Small groups will be largely independent after each video challenge is assigned.  Some groups will choose to work outside of class time.  This could be part of a fine arts credit for a high school transcript, or it could just be a fun supplement.  This link gives and example of one one the video projects we will do: https://youtu.be/hZCwjT74A0o

Developing Character
Age: 3-K
Each 50 minute session we will read a fun story that introduces/ reinforces a positive character trait. Example: kindness, caring, giving, manners. Stories each week will be followed by crafts/games/ and a Bible memory verse.
If we could get 2 or 3 helpers I could take 12-15 littles.

 

Artwork Calendar 1st six weeks

6 week class offered both 6 weeks – 50 minutes

Artwork Calendar is back! Join us again if you enjoyed your handmade calendar! Each week the group will receive calendar pages to design your own masterpiece for each month of the year. I will provide examples of images to draw and include step by step guided drawings to help spark some creativity. Some of the older students may wish to create their own design. At the end of the course, we will bind the calendar pages and each student will have a completed 2023 calendar to take home just in time for the new year.

Etiquette serving others

We will be discussing how to communicate with those around them such as proper introductions, behaviors around others, phone manners, hosting/ attending gatherings , table manners,  table settings, ect.. There will be role play activity to practice with each other. At the end of semester we will have a formal meal that students can show how much they have learned and dress fancy if they would like.  

shared class with Ashley Womble and Nicole Hanger

Whodunnit

 Each week, students will take turns reading a mini mystery short story and complete follow up comprehension questions. Students will also have the opportunity to create their own short stories and drawings. 

All reading levels are welcome.  I do ask that they are able to write and spell, at minimum, phonetically. The stories we will read are short and we will take turns reading round robin style. Creativity will be the primary focus in their own short story writing. My goal is to help kids feel comfortable reading aloud and to encourage them to develop a love for reading and writing. 

The cost of the class covers all the printed material needed for each week.  Students will need to come prepared with their own pencils, crayons or colored pencils to complete their worksheets and stories.
