Activity Club

Activity Club

The WEM after school ACTIVITY CLUB is an integral part of all WEM academic programs, and picks up where class ends as another available Montessori work cycle for all children.  In addition to the importance and choice of outdoor play, activity club for the continued processing of the students’ work day thoughts and classroom discoveries.  While there is a greater freedom to choose activities i.e. less structure than class time, there is more structure than just “free play” for students who elect to engage.

S.T.E.M.  +  ART  =  S.T.E.A.M

The WEM after school Activity Club is filled with S.T.E.M. activities for the children to choose from.  Some of these materials include:

WOOD:  shapes and blocks, both engineered and environmental

MAGNETS:  shapes, tape, drawing, design, blocks

LEGOS:  all age levels from basic to technic

METAL:  cranes, connector sets, building blocks

MATH:  counting games, construction games

TECH: intro to programming games, snap circuits, LED lights, play dough voltage work

ART plays an integral part of the Montessori curriculum both in the classroom and during Activity Club.  ART activities available to all children include:

Spirographs, marbling and graph paper, diagramming and drafting, drawing, tiling, scratch art papers, markers, crayons, oil pastels, water color paints and papers, colored pencils, how-to drawing books, tracing paper, iron beads, chalk boards, painting easels, graph paper patterning, paper airplane building, easy origami books and a more!

Another wonderful aspect of the after school activity club focus on the SENSORIAL needs of developing young children.  A continuation on much of what takes place in the Montessori classroom, SENSORY activities help develop balance, concentration and attention span and hand-eye coordination.

Here's to the crazy ones, the misfits, the rebels, the troublemakers, the round pegs in the square holes... the ones who see things differently ... they push the human race forward, and while some may see them as the crazy ones, we see genius, because the ones who are crazy enough to think that they can change the world, are the ones who do.

Imagination is more important than knowledge. For knowledge is limited to all we now know and understand, while imagination embraces the entire world, and all there ever will be to know and understand.

There really is no such thing as race. We are one species — each of us much, much more alike than different. We all come from Africa. We all are of the same stardust. We are all going to live and die on the same planet, a Pale Blue Dot in the vastness of space. We have to work together.
