“You can find magic wherever you look. Sit back and relax, all you need is a book.” ― Dr. Seuss
Conyers/Covington instructor, Jessica Hembree, agrees!
With books, plus some fun arts, crafts, and activities, Mrs. Hembree is ready to welcome more students into her exciting, adventure filled classes.
Literature Adventures takes a deeper look at common children's books. As they hear the book read aloud, students learn about the science, history, or art hidden in the story. After discussing story elements like character, setting, and plot, students get hands on with a craft. From oceans and coral reefs to bats and castles, this class is great for 2nd-5th grade students.
In Countries and Cultures, students visit a new country every week. They locate it on a map and learn basics about the country like size, population, capital, and current leader. They also learn the culture of the people who call that country home — their sports, literature, art, food, and more. Adding another flag to their passport, students do two different activities. Traditional stories, music, or artwork — sampling food from the country — 2nd-5th graders enjoy the fun!
If your middle school or high school student loves learning about mythology, Mythology in Literature is the class for them. Using several books from author Rick Riordan, students learn ancient Greek, Roman, Egyptian, and Norse mythology. Students compare traditional myths with updated modern versions. Students also learn the impact traditional mythology has on our world.
