Adventures is a blend of exciting hands-on learning, strong academic instruction, engaged discussion, and individual creative pursuits that guide students to feel empowered over their educational journey. Blended learning means that sometimes students are learning in person and sometimes they are learning at home. Adventures at Home is a blend of hands-on learning, core instruction, engaged discussion, and individual creative pursuits. Each student’s academic path is customized to inspire deeper learning through student-directed, parent-supported passion projects using the vast variety of materials available for checkout in our Resource Library. In addition, we use activities that inspire curiosity and discovery to learn the essential science, history, language arts, and math state standards for the year.
Adventures language arts is based upon Reading Horizons, an explicit phonics curriculum that helps every student build a solid foundation in reading and spelling through direct instruction. In addition, the class will have valuable literature discussions and class read aloud novels that correspond with the weekly Epic topics and focus on essentials such as strong writing abilities, keyboarding, and analytical skills.
