Let your children grow with laughter, wonder, and knowledge
Welcome to Art! I wanted to take this opportunity and introduce myself and my program to you and let you know about some of the exciting projects that we will be doing this semester. I am Miss Brandi, and Evergreen Kid’s Academy mother (of Xavier) and Art teacher.
In this class we will be exploring art through the creative exploration of materials (paper, paint, ink), techniques (printing, sculpture, drawing) and most importantly, ideas. In my class there is an emphasis on the creative process. I focus on the process of creating art, not the finished product, but my experience has taught me that when you let children explore through their own creativity, that is when the best masterpieces are created!
Students will learn how to create beautiful and interesting art through experimentation! I look forward to an amazing year full of creativity!
I am your child’s Chinese teacher, Ms Mary. I am very pleased to teach at Evergreen Kids Academy.
Children will be given the opportunity to be exposed to this very popular foreign language. For our Chinese Enrichment Program we will be learning basic Chinese characters, numbers, body parts such as eyes, ears and mouth, animals, greetings, family members and colors. These will be learned through singing songs, playing games, drawings and writing.
Learning Chinese at an early age will benefit the children as they grow older and gain a respect for other cultures. Knowing another language is a powerful learning tool and skill set. I am sure that they will enjoy the fun of learning Chinese language.
My name is Ms. Nadia and I have the pleasure to be a part of the Evergreen Kids Academy community both as a parent and Spanish teacher. Born and raised in Mexico, a country rich in culture, traditions, heritage, colors, flavors, and warmth help me to create a wonderful experience for the children.
Every Friday, the children and I spend time dancing, singing, playing, reading books, and working while learning Spanish. We learn new vocabulary in Spanish such as greetings, numbers, colors, days of the week, months of the year, the four seasons, and much more! I enjoy sharing my culture and language with the children!
THURSDAY : Chinese with Ms. Mary
My name is Ms. ANN. I am a professional orchestral musician in Manhattan, and my instrument is violin.
Here are some things we will do in each class:
- Sing songs of many kinds, including traditional tunes, songs that teach counting, songs about geography, hand
and finger play songs, and songs with movement.
- Learn to play many different rhythms on rhythm sticks!
- Find out about all the instruments of the orchestra – what they look like, how they sound, what they can do,
what family they are in!
- Hear and learn about the music of great composers like Bach and Mozart.
- We will listen to (and have some dramatic fun) with terrific children’s pieces like peter and the Wolf and
Carnival of the Animals.
I am looking forward to sharing my love of music with your children and having lots of fun in our class!
