Families who enroll at Our Redeemer can provide their child with these additional opportunities to grow and develop their knowledge and skill in creative arts beyond our weekly in school art program. He/she can choose from the following areas:
This club meets for a 10 week session in the fall and in the spring. Students work with the teacher to explore art concepts and create fun and interesting projects as they learn (3rd through 6th grade students).
This club meets weekly in April and May. Students will learn the basics of knitting from a capable and dedicated instructor (2nd through 6th grade students).
This club meets weekly in April and May. Students will learn the basics of playing bridge from a capable and dedicated instructor (3rd through 6th grade).
This club meets weekly in April and May. Students will learn the basics of playing “42 Dominoes” from a capable and dedicated instructor (2nd through 6th grade).
In this club, students learn skills, explore their creativity, and practice strategy by playing a variety of classic and new board games. Students also have the opportunity to bring in a game and teach their classmates. They learn to work as a team and follow rules while having fun as they play board games together.
Makerspace has come to Our Redeemer library time! A Makerspace is just what is sounds like – an area where people get together to make things. Makerspace provides students with the opportunity to conceptualize, collaborate, problem solve, and create. In addition to those cognitive skills, they are advancing their fine motor skills. The first two stations that have been introduced are LEGO Blocks and puzzles. Makerspace allows our students to struggle with tasks (Can you build a house that stands on the roof? Or try putting together an all-black and white puzzle!) That is embedded with fun, which leads to perseverance, and a greater sense of accomplishment in completion. As the year progresses, we look forward to adding additional activities to our rotation, especially designing and printing on our new 3D Printer (Kindergarten through 6th grade students)!
