Family Unit Study

Ages: K-6th grades

Teacher: Adonna Pryor

 This class will utilize unit studies (extensive study of one topic that integrates several subjects) to involve entire families. We will study a different topic every 4-6 weeks, and integrate social studies, science, language arts, math, Bible, music, art, etc.  The first week of each study parents are invited to join us for a kickoff and group discussion  during the first 30 minutes, so they will see the scope and direction in person.  For the rest of the first class & the succeeding classes in each study, students will break into 2 age groups, K-2 & 3-6 grades, for more focused study time, and then gather together for full group study and games, appropriate recipes or crafts, etc.  In this way, we hope to uniquely support and aid families to share learning at all their age levels.  **This class is 1 1/2 hours long each week.**
