(Grades 6-8)

Fees:
$175 Tuition / $35 Supplies

Required Materials:
See below

Description:

In this course, students will learn how to draw the world with a creative approach that starts with geometric shapes and relates them to artistic pictures to help students remember them. For example, Cuba looks like a vacuum cleaner and the Yucatan peninsula looks like the head of a seal. Every week I will teach a new drawing in class of a country, region or continent, and for homework students will be required to make a final drawing of the new area learned. Occasionally there will be an assignment to review previously learned drawings and put them together in the proper scale and context.

Students will also learn the history of mapmaking and the history of the exploration of the world by the Europeans. Each week students will have a 2-page reading for homework and occasionally be assigned to present important facts from the reading to the class.

Often in class there will be time for a game, video or craft related to the topic as well. At the end of the course, you will see a dramatic improvement in each student’s ability to draw the entire world from memory. Homework might take about 1 hour per week.

Visit ellenjmchenry.com to see sample drawing videos and parts of the curriculum, but don’t purchase the book. I will order the parts we need at a group discount.

(Grades 7-8)

Fees:
$175 Tuition / $15 Supplies

Required Materials:
See below

Description:
The goal of this course is to provide students with the skills necessary to both enjoy and pull apart contemporary and classic literature, as well as review and build their skills for writing a strong, coherent paragraph and a solid, thoughtful essay. Students will engage in writing activities such as copywork, journaling, and writing a critical analysis, narrative, and other expository essays. Some attention will be given to grammar, elements of literary style, and poetry throughout the course of the year. Homework assignments will entail literature reading, copywork, journaling, and various writing activities centered around paragraphs and longer essays.

Although grammar will be addressed throughout the year, especially when engaging the writing process, I recommend that you implement your own grammar and spelling curriculum at home.  This will not only enrich this particular class but every subject. At this point in their education, writing touches all aspects of their schooling.

Required Materials:

  • 4-6 novels. A book list and reading schedule will be provided prior to the start of the HCA school year.

Our goal is to provide a friendly introduction to sports and fitness while building coordination and self esteem.  JumpBunch® uses a hands-on approach that integrates the physical and mental aspects of each lesson: children have a chance to see, touch and experience each sport. We gear our program for their maximum enjoyment, while learning team skills, cooperation and sportsmanship. Every child is a part of our “team”, no matter what their level of skill. We guide students through all phases of physical development: eye/hand coordination, large and fine motor skills, muscle development, body balance and cardio-respiratory enhancement.

It is important that your children dress appropriately for physical activity. Tennis shoes or sneakers are a must. Children should wear comfortable clothing with freedom of movement. Dresses or skirts are not recommended.
