Depending on interest and how many kids come we may have some organized games.

There is no commitment and no fees, just come as you can. This is not a drop-off, all kids must be accompanies and supervised by their parent/guardian. The more kids we have the more fun it seems to be so come on out!

Homeschool Literature Class

  

Homeschool Literature Class
Suggested for Grades 9-12
Fall 2016

  Enjoying literature is easier and more fun to do in a group than in individual study. This class will learn how to dig deeper into an array of different genres including, but not limited to – fiction, non-fiction, biography, fantasy/science fiction, poetry and modern literature. The goal for this class is threefold. First, we will be learning how to analyze literature. Second, we will be honing our writing and discussion skills to learn how to best express our thoughts. Third, we will work on organizational skills to help us fulfill expectations.

This class will meet weekly (probably on Mondays and Tuesdays and probably at the library – these details will be worked out later) for 24 weeks and will meet the time requirements for 1 high school credit. Class limit is 10 people.

The cost for the class is $100/semester.

Contact Sara Floerke if you have questions (sarafloerke@gmail.com or 218-340-5302)

Homeschool Writing Class

  

Homeschool Writing Class
Suggested for Grades 6-8
Fall 2016

Using the Institute for Excellence in Writing materials we will be going through the nine units to move students from finding main ideas in the beginning to research papers and critiques by the end of the 24 weeks. The goal for this course is to prepare students for organized, academic writing. Creative writing will be small piece of the agenda. This class is designed for those who have done very little structured writing.

We will be meeting once a week (probably on Mondays and Tuesdays and probably at the library – these details will be worked out later) for 24 weeks. This is a course which has seen strong academic results for students.

The cost for the class is $100/semester plus about $25 for a workbook.
