Ecotopia Learning Center/Thrive Homeschool Learning Program
Coming in January 2019
In this class we'll engage kids in age-appropriate and fun activities that focus on stretching our curiosity, thinking, and problem solving skills. We'll piece together and create jigsaws and other kinds of puzzles; solve and create riddles, tongue twisters, and brain stretchers; read about mysteries of the world such as Stonehenge and the pyramids; and read and write short mystery stories and other puzzlers. Our culminating activity for our parent show 'n tell at the end of the course will be creating and acting a mystery drama, including interaction with the parents. If you have questions about this class, please contact Steve or Susan at email@example.com. Or use the contact form on our home page. [P.S. What can you hold in your right hand but not your left hand? Answer clue: Don't be left out!]
Our Current Course: October-December, 2018
Timed to coincide with the holiday season, this class will focus on one of our longstanding beliefs: that writing is a “gift” for people to develop and that writers can “gift” their writing to others: families, friends, relatives, pals, what we call “the joys of writing and giving.” Among the projects we'll include are making and taking home: stationery, postcards, a family tree, greeting cards, collages, fortune cookies, scrolls, and different kinds of books featuring kids' creative writing and art. All projects are adjusted the the children's reading, writing, and artistic skills, with lots of adult support. as our students create GIFTS OF WRITING.
