Creativity and imagination unite in the art room at Old Pointe as we explore hands-on learning in making projects with all sorts of materials from basics like crayons and clay to the unusual like random fun donations that our community so generously shares with us. We seek out inspirations whether that be other artists, children’s books, or links to classroom learning to expand our own imaginations. Adventure awaits weekly in the Old Pointe Art Room.
In the computer lab we work on computer programs dealing mostly in math. Some of the programs are MobyMax, Multiplication.com, Turtle Diary, Skoolbo, ABC mouse, Orchard, Typing games and several more.
In physical education class we strive to teach children how to and want to be physically active. Each day in class we do daily exercises to establish physical routines, a health lesson to stimulate the children on how to think healthy and a physical education lesson to expose the children to as many different physical activities that would stimulate interest in growing into their adult lifestyles. This is to promote a positive self worth and an overall better quality of living.
The music program at Old Pointe is a very unique program that involves learning how to speak the language of music first, then how to speak it on varieties of instruments. Students will have the opportunity to learn skills on mallet instruments, drum set, African drumming, ukulele, guitar, piano, recorder, music making on mobile devices, as well as many other classroom instruments used frequently. Activities and lessons include a fun interactive curriculum that introduces students to the world of music. Students have various opportunities, projects, and programs to perform throughout the school year for different events. Music is a place for students to come to and experience new abilities they might not know they had. In this music classroom every student can learn to play a new instrument and make great sounds with others.
