|Science||Our bodies are unique, wonderfully made, gifts from God! Join us on Mondays as we explore the human body. We will focus on nine human body systems; the skeletal, muscular, respiratory, circulatory, nervous, digestive, urinary, immune, and integumentary systems. As we explore each of these in detail, we will discern its purpose, main organs, specific functions, and how it works so that the body functions as God designed. Students record details learned from class activities and experiments in a science journal to see the wisdom of Psalm 139:14. (“I will offer You my grateful heart, for I am Your unique creation, filled with wonder and awe.”)||Mrs. Steele|
Students will need a soprano or concert sized ukulele. We will learn the names of the strings, how to play basic chords and perform a holiday concert in December. Music is provided.
Smaller students would benefit from the 15cm soprano-sized ukulele, while many could handle either the 23inch concert-sized. Students maybe purchase a ukulele or rent it from Mrs. Sargent.
Here are a variety of options, ranging from $55 to $100:
Kala KA-15S Mahogany Soprano Ukulele
Cordoba Guitars 15CM Concert Ukulele
Donner Concert Ukulele Mahogany 23
Students will need a violin. They will need to attend a violin measuring and try on even on August 17th from 12-2pm at CPE. We will all learn the basics of how to play the violin. We will learn to read music and will perform a holiday show in December.
|Art||Students will continue to practice previous skills while they build skills to clarify or ILLUSTRATE something. This course will focus on the ability to interpret the spoken word into pictures and art. We will also work on drawing people and creating movement.|
Objective: To improve a student’s ability to change a thought, idea, or word into a picture.
|PE||PE in Cedar Park on Wednesdays will continue with a sports focus, including lifetime sports and activities. Regardless of your child’s preference of sport, a variety of fitness activities, games and personal challenges will help develop self-discipline, team work, cooperation skills, sportsmanship, strength and coordination. In addition, the basic fundamental gross and fine motor skills needed for physical and mental development will be emphasized to increase success in all physical activities for sports and everyday life activities. Most importantly, students will gain awareness of how God made our bodies ‘to move’ and how to better treat them “as temples”.||Coach Martz|
|Spanish||Come! Vamos hablar español! Let’s take a journey to other parts of the world where the language of Spanish is spoken. Students will learn the language through dance, music, art and reading just to name a few. We will listen to stories, learn many songs, and keep an ongoing vocabulary list. We will build our skills with bi-weekly lesson plans taken from Sonrisas Elementary Spanish Curriculum. For our returning and older students, we will continue with Sonrisas Level 2. Students will learn different cultures and customs, while focusing on conversation with each other. So come along, y vamos hablar español!||Mrs. Rodriguez|
