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.
