Elementary summer school wrapped up a good second week. After a morning of Bible, literacy, and math, students spent each afternoon enjoying enrichment activities where they had the opportunity to collaborate, communicate, and create.
What does the afternoon program look like? Students spend 30 minutes at each of 4 activities—outdoor games, computers, indoor games, and art.
What did students do in the afternoon this week? In outdoor games, students collaborated in teams. They played capture the flag, ultimate frisbee, and a version of dodgeball combined with tag. They also had a water day involving squirt guns, water balloons, and sponges, which everyone enjoyed in the hot weather.
In computer, students played games to practice math and literacy skills. Students in 4th and 5th grade could also begin learning computer programming.
In indoor games, students practiced communicating respectfully with both their words and their hands, and playing honestly so everyone had fun. In one game, teams built castles made of paper cups and defend their castle from the projectiles of an opposing team. They also played circle games and running games.
In art, students created pictures using different types of lines, patterns, and watercolor.
Thank you to everyone who contributed to a successful second week of summer school!
