Students will learn about famous women in education, science, and sports who have made history for their amazing accomplishments. For each lesson, kids will read and analyze either a nonfiction or fiction text and then write and draw about what they learned. Young learners will have the opportunity to discover the meaning of gender stereotypes, the value of questioning social norms, and the power of reaching for their dreams.

Each week the students will learn about a famous artist, view their work and then create art inspired by that artist. Along the way we will learn about and use the elements of art, and principles of design.
Folk Tales around the World
Each week, students will focus on an element of storytelling. After performing a close reading of the featured text, students will engage in meaningful discussions and enhance comprehension through participating in a shared writing activity. Each lesson concludes with sharing and celebrating student work.
Basics of Fiction
Introduces students to writing fiction by focusing on a different key topic each day. Students will learn about description and figurative language, settings and world building, character development, plot, dialogue, and strategies for approaching key moments in a story. Each day will include collaborative activities, discussion, and writing prompts. Students will have opportunities to submit writing to the teacher for feedback. Each assignment is designed to stand alone as a short writing project, but students may choose to use them to work toward one longer story.
Explore Art History
Each week students will create a new painting, drawing or mixed media artwork inspired by art found throughout history, and across the world.
Drama and Improv
Designed to help each child develop a rich pool of skills like enhanced self-expression, self-confidence, creative thinking, interpersonal skills through varied speech and drama activities. We will focus on voice modulation, projection, characterization, dramatization, working in teams, appropriate use of facial expression, body language, and space.
Storytelling through Comics
A "Jam Comic" is a collaborative drawing exercise in which artists draw a one panel comic based on a common drawing prompt. Each class will begin with this activity. Following the warm up, the teacher will guide students to create their own comic strips using the lesson objectives. The teacher will model each step of the process through guided drawing, collaborative brainstorming, and positive peer/teacher critique.
Book Club: Magic Tree House
Students will practice nonfiction reading skills while learning about Arctic animals and their adaptations. We will make connections between fiction text and nonfiction mini lessons. Students will practice discussion skills and write short essays.
