Bible Bowl 6th-12th Grade

Bible Bowl is a Jeopardy-style quizzing program where each season (fall and spring) students get a selected text of scripture that's split into 3 blocks. Students who choose to may join us in monthly league competitions over the current block. Monthly competition is one of the best parts of the program and highly recommended, but it is NOT a requirement for joining the Regent Academy team.

 

Students who join us at Bible Bowl from enjoy playing games over what we cover during class, so even if they don’t do the “homework,” they can still enjoy playing the game. This is a team game that encourages working together on bonus questions, so it’s a great outlet for students who’d like a chance to socialize a little. It’s also fast-paced and fun, and we work on a rewards-based incentive system, so players can earn points toward prizes by doing “homework” at home (about 15 minutes per day) or with wins made during practice.

 

Registration is $60 per player and includes the text, registration with National Bible Bowl, and covers the cost of prizes earned by students. (Costs associated with the optional monthly competitions is not included.) If you’d like to sign up or you’re interested in learning more about the program, please contact me at trabiblebowl@gmail.com! If you don’t have third period free, but you’re still interested in learning more, please reach out for information about other possible options. We’d love to have you join us!

Elementary
2-4 Living Storybooks - Combining Literature with Creative Arts--Year 1 (Grove)

Come join us as we make reading come alive! Learn how to make reading fun! Make a story come alive by crafting, cooking and creating some of the fun and exciting parts of a children’s storybook.  This course is designed so that students will experience literature through art, creative learning, and crafting. We will read a variety of books and then use a unit study approach to “experience” the story. This approach will help students have a deeper understanding of the characters, the setting and the activities presented in the story and provide a foundation for new vocabulary from the books. A variety of stories (and varying reading levels) will be read so that many interests are covered.  Students may be independent readers or work with a parent to read the stories. This class may be repeated 3 times to cover all the stories in this class.  Year 1- Stories of Character, Year 2- Stories of Adventure and Year 3- Stories of Mystery.

Imagination Station S.T.E.A.M. Class Part 1 - Creative Learning and Problem Solving      

Teacher: Mrs. Elaine Grove                  Grades 2-5

Let your imagination GROW! Come explore a world of fun challenging projects in Science- Technology-Engineering- Art and Math (S.T.E.A.M) that will help your student develop a growth mindset to learning. Each week creative, interactive projects will be presented that will force your student to “think outside” the box and come up with innovative problem-solving skills. There may not be a “perfect” answer but the process of inventing and creating is what will be encouraged. This class will encourage creativity, imagination and innovation. Students will work individually, in small groups and as a whole class so that cooperation and collaboration of ideas can be experienced. This class is designed to build self-confidence and develop individuality. A great class for students who need more physical movement in their learning.  Many stories and prompts will be read to the students to start the “idea generator” before the projects begin.

This year our focus will be on completing several large project-based learning activities. These projects teach numerous skills simultaneously and students get “real life” experience solving problems. We will also have STEM challenge days- which are fun filled days where a challenge must be solved either in small groups or individually. These days will involve making and creating!

Imagination Station is a 3 Part course so students may repeat this class 3x to cover all the activities offered.

Materials Needed:

There is not a textbook to purchase.

**Additional Material Fee of $45 for the year to cover all of the supplies.  Paid directly to the teacher and due at registration.

Please note:  This class is project intensive and requires some project work at home.
