Registration is now open for Colonial Homeschool Club Days. Club Days is currently divided into a one-hour literature club where children will read and discuss great books and a second-hour current events club.
The goal of literature club is to create a family style relaxed environment while also providing a structured schedule, clear objectives, and high behavioral expectations for participants. Book discussions will be conversational in nature. Children will be encouraged to share their experiences and opinions with each other while parents help to facilitate and encourage discussion.
The goal of current events club is to talk about local, national, and world events using God’s World News resources (digital, print, and mobile resources) as a basis for discussion. Parents are required to purchase GWN for participation in the current events club. Access subscription services at www.gwnews.com or 1-800-951-KIDS (5437).
Club Days will meet a total of 8 Friday afternoons throughout the year. The Literature Club will meet from 2:00p.m. – 3:00p.m and the Current Events Club will meet from 3:00 p.m.- 4:00p.m.
Dates are as follows:
September 26, October 10, December 12, January 23, February 20, March 6, April 24, and May 8.
Club Days is free and open for children in kindergarten through high school. Although there is no charge, families are required to be Colonial Homeschoolers members. Once sign-up is complete, groups will be formed and divided based on factors such as age, grade, and reading /comprehension level. Ultimately, each family should decide for themselves which group best fits their child(ren). If you would like to participate in club days please register on Colonial Homeschoolers by August 20, 2014.
