Please lock in our early bird special pricing! Looking for a fun, high-interest, and engaging learning group for your 5th grader? This course is individualized so each and every student is working on their own plan while still being able to learn with their peers. For over 10 years we have worked with homeschoolers in a microschool co-op Ms. Iman started. Our Kind Curriculum©️ is engaging, project-based, and sparks the wonder in our students. Our curriculum covers the following: 🗣️Language Arts Skills ➗ Math Skills 😁Social Emotional Skills 🎓 Leadership Skills 💸 Entrepreneurship 🔬STEM Skills ✍️Writing Skills 🧪Science Skills 📖Reading Comprehension Skills 🎨 Art Skills During this class, students will be able to build connections and friendships with peers while having fun learning all the skills they need to know before 6th Grade. Our courses are short and done with very small groups of learners so students can really have the chance to have the attention of the teacher and connect with other students. Each class covers the following Day 1: Math: 30 minutes of group fluency, minilessons, and Word Problems, 20 minutes of independent lessons where students work through fluency, concept development, and independent practice at their own pace with precise and supportive digital and teacher feedback.
