HEDP University Newsletter October, 2012
September has come to an end and the HEDP University clubs have been established. For the next few months, students from the HEDP programs will learn and create many things. We look forward to sharing these new topics with families via pictures, recordings and finished products.
Kindergarten students will have the option to join in the daily club offering for the remainder of the session. So far, we have learned about nature by drawing and observing living things in our environment, created objects using legos (vehicles and houses), played rhythmic games, and played team games to foster teamwork.
First and second graders have started building complex machine structures from legos, learning music through playing recorders, built structures out of interesting materials made to teacher specifications, and learned about motion.
Third through sixth graders have started work on a giant 3-foot tall ferris wheel made of K'Nex, and started to broaden their knowledge of the world through science. Those who have chosen to, will soon be learning to play different music through an instrument that they have chosen. Others have started to broaden their technological repertoire of computer software.
In each group, the next few weeks will explore great new challenges as well as chances to explore new experiences. Please ask your child(ren) all about the new things they are learning in the clubs offered at HEDP.
