Spanish with Ms. Medina

Through many hands-on experiences, games, songs, stories, reading, and writing with exciting content and culture, I provide a foundation for students’ successful life-long language learning.

Finally, in my class, the students will have the opportunity to develop and practice the four necessary skills for learning a second language: Listening, speaking, reading, and writing.

Music with Ms. Lyons

Music students at GREEN Charter learn important musical skills that will help them grow in experiencing and making music and develop life-long appreciation of music. This is accomplished through the use of rhythmic speech, developing the singing voice, movement, reading musical notations, & playing instruments. Each level builds upon previously learned skills and concepts. The teacher uses a variety of materials in the Orff-Schulwerk and Kodaly traditions, Quaver Curriculum, Spotlight on Music Curriculum, and various online resources.

Art with Ms. Boykin

Art is designed to help all students develop, understand, and apply the “Elements of Art” and the “Principles of Design” in their own artworks. Students will develop various art skills and techniques, all while strengthening other skills such as teamwork, creative thinking, and problem solving. Throughout the class students will actively engage in various art activities including: art production, art criticism, and exploration of art history. Students will be given the opportunity to experience a wide variety of art media, mediums, and techniques. The students will learn through physical activities, games, songs, and different educational resources. Students will learn that there is more to art than painting and drawing.
