Storytelling Through Movement: Down by the Seashore

Entering Pre-4, K, 1, 2
Course fee: $300

Roll like the waves, scurry like a crab, and feel the sand beneath your feet! In this course, we will make stories about the beach come alive with movement, music and props. Each day, we will focus on a different storybook and explore the individual elements of the stories with our bodies. Children will develop collaborative, self-expressive, and problem-solving skills through a variety of movement activities.

Taught by Maggie Lipton, Pine Point teacher

Detective Agency

Do you love to read mysteries? Are you convinced that your sibling has stolen your favorite toy, but are in need of proof? Do you want to be as cool and sleuth-like as Sherlock Holmes? If you answered yes to any of these questions, join the Pine Point Detective Agency. We will be solving mysteries and puzzles of all kinds and in the process develop our critical thinking, logic, and powers of deduction! We will also learn about some of the cool tricks and tools detectives use to do their work, like dusting for fingerprints and the art of disguise!

Not Getting Lost Hiking in the Woods

This is the third in a series of outdoor hiking and trail programs. Participation in Part 1 and Part 2 is not necessary, but might lend a greater appreciation to our work with local conservation organizations and trail maintenance. The goal of our week is to contribute to the efforts of local conservation organizations through our volunteer work. After learning about the organization and the unique areas we will work in, we will dedicate ourselves to whatever project best suits their needs. This will likely include trail maintenance, invasive species removal, and other outdoor physical labor. Over the previous two weeks we enjoyed several trails in different state, national, and private areas. At each one, someone cleared the trail for us and this is a week to begin to return the favor so others (and us!) can continue to enjoy the trails as we have.

This 3-part series is taught by Jon Mitchell, science teacher and Director of Social and Environmental Responsibility at Pine Point School. Mr. Mitchell has been backpacking and spending as much time outdoors as he can for several decades. His years canoeing, backpacking, and camping began with his family as a kid and continued as he earned his Eagle Scout Award. Since then, he has completed the Long Trail in Vermont and the John Muir Trail in California as well as many other shorter overnight trips throughout the Northeast. Joining Mr. Mitchell for Part 2, Five Days In the Woods, is Sheila Reagan, science and math teacher at Pine Point School and former environmental educator.
