Fearless Dragon Creative Writer’s Club (GRADES 3-5)
In the “Fearless Dragon Writers’ Club,” the adventure is only as limited as our imaginations! Each week we will explore a different children’s book and writing theme. After listening to a read-aloud, the Fearless Dragons write their own stories based on that session’s theme and the featured author’s style. Each session includes original writing worksheets, writing tips, and a focus on “INSPIRATION” as we ask, “WHAT INSPIRES YOU?” This playful workshop welcomes writers of all skill and interest levels, those that enjoy writing, as well as reluctant writers.
Super Hero Fitness (GRADES 1-2)
Fitness disguised as fun and adventure—physical activity, brain games and imagination combined! Students will learn the fundamentals of fitness and strength, problem-solving, and the principles of teamwork. Each class is its own mini-adventure, built around the most popular superheroes from comics, movies and television. **Please remember to have your child come to class with a water bottle, towel, comfortable clothing and sneakers. Superhero attire is welcome!**
