  • Enrichment, grade 5

    Our theme is "Living in a Fantasy World: Extraordinary Thinking, Creative Design." 

    Do you often think of imaginary lands full of magical, mythical creatures? Do you like to read fantasy books? Then this course is for you!   

    The first book we read aloud together is The Guardians of Ga’Hoole. While we read, we focus on the characters in this story. In addition to reviewing reading strategies such as visualizing and summarizing, we learn the different elements in a fantasy story that prepares us to write our own story. So prevalent in many fantasy novels today are the ideas of an unlikely hero, a sidekick, and an antagonist. We explore these and try to emulate them in our writing. 
     
     
    While exploring our next book Fablehaven, we examine the book and expand our fantasy literacy. We pay attention to setting and the magical elements in the story. We learn how the setting influences the characters. For our own stories, we’ll discuss ways to transport our readers to the unreal world that we create.  As an option, you can create a clay character from or construct a diorama of the main setting in your story. 

    Using The Extraordinaires ® Design Studio, we become familiar with the design thinking process: empathize, ideate, define, prototype and test. You'll be given fictional character cards and then invited to design wildly imaginative solutions all while building empathy for your Extraordinaire characters. With the goal of generating as many ideas as you can without designing something that already exists, you'll begin ideating and coming up with your uniquely creative idea. You'll be asked to choose and settle on a final idea which best meets your Extraordinaires need and fulfills your specific design project criteria. You'll have a blast using your imagination, creativity, and hard work! 

    In logical places throughout this course we interweave curricular areas such as math, reading, writing and the use of technology.

  • Musical Theater Company, grades 2-5 [NEW]

    This year our show is the beloved classic, The Wizard of Oz (RSC).
     
    Our newly designed full-day five-week Musical Theater Company exposes children to the many elements that go into live performances of musical theater productions. We seek to teach the value of team work and practice ensemble building. We encourage students to participate in both behind the scenes duties and live performances. Students not only collaborate with others but are also recognized for their individuality, while working within the structure of preparing for our performances. Our goal for them is to work hard while having fun and emerge with a sense of great pride and accomplishment.
     
    Ensemble Building Older students connect with younger students and practice mentoring skills. Students learn how to be a member of our theater ensemble.
     
    Art for Theater Students learn about stage make up and experiment with character make up. They design and create specific parts of their costumes for the show in addition to participating in designing and making props, sets, and scenery. They contribute individual artwork to enhance their performance space.
     
    Young Storytellers Rising 2nd & 3rd graders create stories and use their imagination to bring them to life. Parents are invited to a special young storyteller presentation during our camp day.
     
    Scene Work Students work as an ensemble. When appropriate, roles in the production will be shared. Each student is given the opportunity to speak during the performance. Younger students learn how to navigate listening to each other and being on stage. Students with more experience undertake more responsibility learning blocking and scenes.
     
    Vocals Students move through rotation blocks to experience multiple aspects of musical theater productions. Music and vocal coaching - students learn music from the show after warm ups and vocal exercises. Each rotation we work on musical numbers. Soloists and choral singers work with the music director to perfect their songs.
     
    Community Time Allows students to connect with the larger camp population. Lunch and playtime are opportunities to socialize outside of production-based rotations. Forming friendships is supportive of the ensemble experiences. Additionally, MTC members are invited to participate in some of the Afternoon Camp Theme Day activities.
     
    Dance Class Students are given the opportunity to stretch and learn technique along with learning about musical theater style. Students learn about what it means to tell a story with their bodies. Choreography from the show is also taught during this class.
     
    Stage Movement This is an MTC Community Class. Students have older/younger buddies and work in a mentoring capacity as we engage in improvisational and exploratory movement. Exercises include both independent and group work, as students go through the paces of learning stage combat, animal movement, creative entrances and exits and learning about how gravity and emotions can be expressed through their bodies.
     
    A Word about Casting Roles are cast in our production after careful consideration of many factors. Ensemble singing and dancing and conversations with each cast member with the teachers are components of what is a student-driven process. In casting the production's roles, we have your student's best opportunity for growth and success in mind. We appreciate your support of the casting process of our production.
