This year at PRISM Learning Community we introduced Club Days!
On Tuesdays PRISM presents our learners with an array of learning opportunities that everyone is free to peruse and participate in at their will. Several clubs, or stations, are set up all day long. They include the following:
- Art Alcove (All day) - Mixed media supplies set out for children to create masterpieces of their own design
- FOR Kids, BY Kids (All day) - at this station we will be guiding PRISM students who would like to plan and offer their own stations, clubs, and/or classes during future PRISM quarters.
- Book Nook ALL AGES (All day) - Quiet space with books and beanbags
- Board Games and Puzzle Arena (All day) - Games and puzzles available for all ages, including a 1000 piece puzzle for adults and kids to work on together
- Snap Circuits station (All day) - Explore circuit building, electricity, lights, batteries, and more through the use of Snap Circuits.
In addition, we offer clubs/stations during particular time blocks of the day. For example:
- Little Animal Crafts for Toddlers - PRISM Student Shannon will assist toddlers in creating small animal crafts during First Block.
- Harry Potter - Sarah Mays will lead students in exploring the magical world of the Harry Potter books during First Block.
- Miniature Dungeons & Dragons making - D&D expert Dan Parcells will lead a two block long station helping students create and paint their own mini D&D figures during First Block.
- Rubber Band Bracelet Making - PRISM Student Garrett will assist students in l;earning how to weave various styles of rubber band bracelets on looms
- Pokemon Club - PRISM Student Daniel will lead students in exploring the world of Pokemon cards - collecting and playing
- Miniature Dungeons & Dragons making - D&D expert Dan Parcells will lead a two block long station helping students create and paint their own mini D&D figures
- Drama Club - Marilyn Ayala will direct students looking to act and perform
- Scrapbooking - PRISM Student Patricia will share her love of scrapbooking with fellow students
- Hula Hoop Making - Facilitator Linda Tabor will help students make hula hoops by measuring (by body size, not with the measuring tape) out the hoops and connecting them together by dipping each hoop end into boiling water to slide over connector. Discuss the history of the hula hoop. Decorate the hoops with various colors of electrical tape. Discuss why I chose electrical tape and talk about the other options. This requires patience and attention, which is a struggle for many, self included. We'll discuss health benefits of hula hooping such as how it can be a full body workout, helps with core strength, spine strength and flexibility, balance, and overall happiness. Celebrate our creations by listening to some music and trying a few hula hoop dance moves that incorporate arm movements while just having fun. Students will be encouraged to share their new creations with others to spread the joy!
PRISM prides itself on offering community homeschool students a variety of learning opportunities. Including the freedom to explore potential new passions and interests!
