About

RANGERS 3: AGES 11 - 15              

Wednesdays

New Day & Time  12:30 - 3:30 

(full day options: Add Science & Geography - hands on learning)  

THIS PROGRAM IS DESIGNED FOR THE DEVELOPMENTAL STAGES OF THE TRANSITIONAL YEARS. 

Semester 2 will include thymically: depending on the weather & upon interest 

NATURAL SCIENCE -    WHITTLING   COOKING    HERBAL Projects 

  WORKING ON THE GARDEN- EDIBLE SCHOOL YARD PREPPING & PLANTING 

 

RANGERS PROGRAM RUNS BY SEMESTER FOR CONTINUITY, ROUTINE & STRONG FRIENDSHIP BUILDING.

WE ENGAGE & LEARN THROUGH MOVEMENT & WHOLISTIC HANDS-ON LEARNING.  

THIS AGE WANTS TO BE CHALLENGED AND WE WORK WITH THIS DEEP NEED TO LEARN & GROW. WE LEARN GENTLY, & POSITIVELY. WE WORK WITH POSITIVE SELF TALK, AS WELL AS ENCOURAGING OTHERS AND BUILDING ONE ANOTHER UP.

Semester 2 2024 will be more like the Wilder Class : Fire-Building -  Working on Gourd bowls, knapping stone to make arrowheads, arrowbuilding, shelter building, cooking, and working on garden projects making a weaved fencing or container and planting, working on animal fencing ( and some farm animal exposure) and art projects and archery ( when the weather is warmer ) 

 

WE LEARN RHYTHMICALLY WITH THE SEASONS, AND STAGES OF DEVELOPMENT. WE FOUNDATIONALLY LEARN – HOW TO LOVE TO LEARN  IN A COMFORTABLE & ENGAGING ENVIRONMENT. OUR SPACES INCLUDE GARDENS, PLACES TO BUILD FORTS IN OUR LITTLE WOODS & FARMYARD, A SEASONAL STREAM AND POND. WE LEARN ASIDE AT TIMES A LAMB GRAZING, INQUISITIVE MINIATURE GOAT, AND OTHER FARM ANIMALS THAT WE CAN OBSERVE AND PET. ANIMALS BRING A CALM TO MANY CHILDREN & EXPAND THEIR EXPERIENCES AND EXPOSURES. SOMETIMES THEY BECOME THE LESSON.

WE LEARN CONCEPTS LIKE ENGINEERING, TEAMWORK & A SENSE OF SPATIAL AWARENESS WITH FORT BUILDING. WE BALANCE & DEVELOP OUR VESTIBULAR SENSES HELPING CONCENTRATION & LEARNING. WE ALSO LEARN WITH GAMES, MOVEMENT  TO LEARN WITH THE  WHOLE CHILD, WE CHALLENGE OURSELVES & WORK TOGETHER WITH GROUP PROJECTS.

 

OUR PROGRAM INCLUDES UNITS OF NATURAL SCIENCE, LITERATURE, NATURAL JOURNALING, ART,  WE ALSO INCLUDE SEASONAL  FIRE BUILDING, WHITTLING, NATURE ART, COOKING AND EDIBLE SCHOOLYARD EDUCATION (COOKING AND EATING FROM THE GARDEN).

WE ENJOY SPECIAL DAYS TOO, LIKE BIRTHDAYS & HOLIDAYS TO ADD A SPECIAL & EXCITING ELEMENT FOR DEEPING IMPORTANT EVENTS  & MEMORIES. 

 

RANGERS IS DESIGNED FOR FORWARD LEARNING, CREATING FRIENDSHIPS, FEELING COMFORTABLE IN OUR NATURAL SPACES & WITH THEMSELVES. WE TREAT OTHERS WITH KINDNESS & EMPHASIZE EMPATHY AND UNDERSTANDING ONE ANOTHER. WE WORK TOGETHER WITH POSITIVE CONFLICT RESOLUTION & UNDERSTANDING OURSELVES & OTHERS.

 

YOU MAY CALL US FOREST SCHOOL, NATURE SCHOOL AND EARTHSCHOOLING & WILD-SCHOOLING AND ALL WOULD FIT.
