Course Description:
Back by popular demand. Ms McLeod, Dublin Elementary teacher is offering her “sold-out” after school class this summer!

Does your student love to build?  Then this is the summer class for them.  “KEVA planks” are about 1/4 inch thick, 3/4 inch wide and 4 1/2 inches long. You build structures by simply stacking the planks. No glue, no connectors. They can be stacked upright which looks like it would be unstable as a house of cards, but even this type of structure is surprisingly stable.”  Each day, class will begin with individual building challenges, move to group challenges and then finish up with free time for building. During challenge activities, students will practice different problem solving techniques as well as learning to work cooperatively in a group. Along the way they will learn some basic engineering, architectural, math and science skills.

Students can do both session A and session B as there will be different challenges.

Keva Planks

In fact, did you know that research shows that students who play with blocks tend to do better in mathematics and science in higher grade levels?  Well, it’s true and researchers from the University of Idaho have concluded that playing with blocks helps children develop a fundamental understanding of quantities, equality & geometry. Playing, building and having fun while learning, what could be better than that?

Our goal remains steadfast: to provide a rich and engaging environment where students can learn, practice, and excel in Mandarin Chinese.

We will introduce several famous Chinese cuisines that are beloved by children.

As the theme is centered around food, our courses are designed to engage participants' five senses and six perceptions. Students will have the opportunity to see, feel, smell, hear, and taste(possibly) the food. 

The classes are designed to expand students' culinary knowledge and appreciation for Chinese cuisine. Integrate cooking sessions or tasting activities, exploring a variety of Chinese dishes and their cultural significance. (For example, northern Chinese people usually like to eat flour-made food, and southern Chinese like to eat rice-made food. These preferences are influenced by the distinct geographic and cultural environments.)

Considering the physical and food safety of students, we will not have any hot and electric cooking pots in the classroom. Only pre-made food is provided, such as to use washed fruit, to let students make sweet Chinese-style snacks.

*If there are potential food allergies among some students, we will consider the use of alternative materials such as playdough, clay, and colored paper, providing a creative and safe substitute for culinary activities.

People believe that the enlightenment of one's perception of the outside world often begins with mythological tales during early childhood. Those stories lay the foundation for our initial worldview and values. Moreover, these stories spark imagination, foster creativity, and instill important lessons about morality and empathy. Through these myths, children learn about cultural traditions and values, helping them develop a deeper understanding of the world around them.
