This week is our last week of our elementary camp this summer and our theme this week is “A World of Dimensions”. The kids have been dabbing into Geometry while learning and creating multidimensional shapes. We learned about Flat Stanley and his adventures which helps us understand the difference between 2d and 3d. Mr. Josh, our music teacher has been teaching about the magic of percussion . The kids have been creating cheers and chants all while creating beats on their bodies and the floor. Our mystery musicians have been “wowzers” the past couple of days. Our Monday musician guest was Mike Tarpley, a saxophonist who played and showed us the differences between his 3 saxophones- a Soprano Sax, an Alto Sax and a Tenor Sax. His soulful and jazz riffs found a way to our hearts.
On Tuesday we had 2 treats.
Mikari Tarpley, a Broadway actress who toured with Disney’s The Lion King, shared her story on Tuesday. Mikari who is 13 now played “Young Nala” in the show in 2015- 2016. She reminded the kids that even at a young age that you can accomplish your dreams!
Our 2nd treat on Tuesday was saxophonist Kimberlye McKinney! She had so much fun with us last week, that she just wanted to come by and perform for the kids again!

WEEK FOUR THEME!
A WORLD OF DIMENSIONS!
A WORLD OF DIMENSIONS!
From 2D to 3D
Remember Flat Stanley? This week we will spend some time thinking about what the world would be like if it were in 2D. We will also engage in activities that explore 2 dimensional and 3 dimensional shapes.
Dimensions of Music: Travelling through Time
What if electricity was discovered before Mozart wrote his first symphony? Music has been a part of humanity since the beginning of time. We will explore music’s beginnings on into the future. While also discovering and playing with the many dimensions of technology that impact music today.

WEEK THREE THEMES
FUN WITH FRACTIONS EXPLORING THE PHYSICS OF SOUND!!!
Fractions & Data
We will conduct LOTS of surveys this week to explore a world of fractions. The kids will enjoy asking friends and family interesting questions and creating a variety of graphs to help them with understanding “part” to “whole.” We will also have some tasty treats.
What’s in a note? How is sound made? What makes this instrument sound different from the next? Math and measurements have a lot to do with sound production and pitch. This week we will delve into the physics of sound and discover some really cool ways to make our own music using unconventional objects and household items!
Silly, smiling faces at camp this week!!
Mr. Josh has been teaching us about sound, pitch and rhythm all week as we prepare a group performance with the boomwhackers. Boomwhackers are really cool teaching tools which help children visualize the physics of sound.
